Born in Europe, Nona Mona touched the shores of Australia in the late 80's. As a child she dabbled in gymnastics, jazz ballet and the performing arts. As an adult, Nona's love of theatre and glamour took over and she joined the Burlesque community of Adelaide.
Nona has performed all over Australia, as well as international burlesque festivals. Her passion and talent for teaching made her a well-loved instructor at the Peaches 'n' Gin Academy. After placing runner up in Miss Burlesque SA 2013, Nona Mona won herself the title of Miss Burlesque South Australia 2014!

Born to perform, European bombshell Sapphire Snow revels in the spotlight, renowned for her grace and air of sophistication when she takes to the stage. She is an old-school entertainer who loves nothing more than to entice the audience into the palm of her hand.
Sapphire has taught and danced numerous dance styles at an international level, including Blues, Swing, 1920’s Charleston, Ballroom, Tango and Vintage Jazz, giving a signature Sapphire twist to each of her entrancing and cheeky performances.
Sapphire is equally passionate about performing and mentoring other artists. Her outstanding acts have earned her competitive titles, but her greatest joys are teaching and performing for a live audience.

Luna Eclipse is a burlesque, swing and jazz performer who has an impressive array of achievements behind her.
She was one of the founding members of Peaches 'n' Gin Burlesque and is director of Naked Girls Reading Adelaide. She is a saucy slapstick style performer who has shaken her stuff all over Australia and the world has honed her craft of ridiculous facial expressions, downright dirty grinds and assling like nobody's business.
She was recently crowned Miss Burlesque South Australia, in 2013 won Miss Burlesque Australia's "Entertainer of The Year" and was nominated People's Choice SA by the burlesque industry three years running. With vintage charm and a dash of silly, Luna Eclipse excites, entrances and entertains!
