Once upon a time, there were two prim and proper ballerinas, full of hopes and dreams for the future, found themselves lost on the way home from Sunday school.

They happened upon a glittery door sporting a Red Delicious apple and hoping to get directions, the pair entered the establishment and came out dressed only in their dignity. The rest is history!

Dahlia Dangerous and Trillian met four years ago at Red Delicious Burlesque Academy as they prepared to debut as solo performers. Collectively they have over 50 years’ experience in various styles of dance and performance. BSD are arguably the best burlesque duet in New Zealand, using their exceptional talent for synchronicity to create intense and powerful acts that will leave you clinging to the edge of your seat and begging for more.

They have been featured in the New Zealand Burlesque Festival in 2013 and 2014, the Australian Burlesque Festival 2014 and 2016 and the Perth International Burlesque Festival 2015. Last year BSD took on a mission for sparkly world domination in the form of a 5-week tour of the USA and Canada, performing in New Orleans, New York, Minneapolis and Montreal.

Peel & Reveal - The art of glove and stocking tease with Dahlia Dangerous
Want to learn the tricks to a good peel? Want to add a stocking or glove tease to an already existing act or add a few more tricks to your bag of seduction? In this workshop, you will learn various tips & techniques to the seductive and elegant glove and stocking peels from standing and sitting positions.
Wear shorts or stretchy form fitting pants.

Bring a pair of long gloves and a pair of stay up stockings you don’t mind getting runs in OR stockings and garter belt and slip on heels.
All levels welcome.

Walking & Teasing – How to Diva with Trillian
In this class, we will begin our journey into the art of tease. The tease begins that first moment you step on stage and connect with your audience, long before the clothes begin to come off. Trillian is going to give you the tools to bring out your inner burlesque diva and whip your audience into a frenzy. We will cover posture and lines of the body, posing, walking in heels, improvisation and stage presence. Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing and your favourite pair of heels. All levels welcome.

Payment in advance is required to book your place.
