About the Teacher
RAINBOW





RAINBOW is the Burlesque Idol Australia 2017 WINNER and Burlesque Idol Australia Ambassador.

Rainbow by name and nature this full bloomed rose knows how to shimmy, bump and grind like an untended coffee grinder! Recently described by one of the judges at Burlesque Idol Australia 2017 as ‘ridiculous in all the right ways,’ this classically trained, Canberra-based performer stumbled across burlesque while attempting to find a fitness class with pizzazz (and jazz hands). Since then she has grown as a performer developing skills with feather and silk fans.

Since being voted by the audience as runner-up in the 2016 Canberra Burlesque Idol, Rainbow has sashayed her way across venues in Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong. Her acts are known for their originality and fun choreography. Described as a ‘sparkly cannon of chaos’, Rainbow is a diverse performer with more than 20 years dance training in jazz, classical ballet, and salsa, among other dance styles.

In 2017 she won Burlesque Idol Australia and was awarded the prize for Best Comedic Act. Following her win, she has continued to perform across Australia with upcoming performances booked in Townsville, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. She is excited by the opportunities that have arisen as a result of her involvement in Burlesque Idol, in particular, having the opportunity to meet established and emerging performers from around Australia.
