Enjoy Burlesque at it's best and at it's beginning, with this weekend of glitz, glamour, new performers, professional performers (we would never say old :P) and above all tease, tassels and fun.

We are giving the chance to some amateur Burlesque performers to shine as 13 amateur Burlesque Beaus and Beauties compete to be crowned the Ms/Mr Tournament of Tease SA 2019. We also want to show off the best Jhb Burlesque has to offer with a show night on the Friday 22 Nov of the Best of Burlesque starring professionals from all over Jhb and then the Tournament of Tease amateur competition on Saturday the 23rd.

Come spend two nights of glitter, gorgeousness and glamour and help us grow the Burlesque community in Jhb.
