Nancy Nightshade - Producing, performing and teaching burlesque in the South Island since March 2009!

What she lacks in size she makes up for in creativity & cheek!

Coming to the burly scene from a dance & circus background, Nancy has spent almost 4 decades on the stage, starting ballet at the age of 2 & ending up in circus school in her late 20s. She has trained in numerous dance styles, played with oodles of fire ((& fun people)) & performed in the UK, Australia & NZ. Running a successful burlesque academy & troupe in NZ for seven years (mentoring & teaching numerous NZ title holders), Miss Nightshade also produces many projects; including a fashion line, a burlesque “unplugged” night, & the South Island Competition “Miss Tassels NZ”.

Always working on something new & with a passion for entertaining, She’s a visual feast.

Her students have gone on to win many NZ titles including Queen of the NZ burlesque Festival, Miss Burlesque NZ, Miss Tassels South Island and many titles at the Grant Tease 2015. Come along and see what the fuss is about.

Limited one-on-ones are also available. Plus meet and greets over coffee and nibbles.
