She studied Burlesque with Lola the Vamp in 2007 and after one Term of classes was invited to perform on her national tour. She has never looked back and has been performing burlesque ever since! BB started her School of Performance in 2009.

Ash McPash

Born in the wrong era, Ash McPash has danced for 17 years and is back at it with as much passion as she had trying on her first pair of ballet shoes. This twinkle-toed performer has developed her technique over the years by tackling dance styles such as Jazz, Tap, 1960's GoGo, 1920's Charleston, Contemporary and her all-time favourite - Musical Theatre!

She has competed in Brisbane Eisteddfods and continues to develop her personal style by taking on different dance classes and workshops where possible.
Along with her outgoing nature, Ash is known for her characterisation. She is always excited to develop and create fun, outgoing and quirky routines that will uplift, engage and entertain a crowd!

 

 

De La Vinx

DeLa started her dance training at an early age in jazz, tap, hip hop and contemporary styles. She excelled as a student and went on to teach for her dance school. After making it through to the solo audition round of So You Think You Can Dance she turned her keen dance eye to Burlesque, Circus aerials and Pole Dance. 

She has a passion for combining commercial hip hop and jazz styles with Burlesque tease. 
After having a year off to have a baby (who's adorable!) She is back and ready to bring her burlesque exper-tease to BB le Buff's School of Performance.
