Expect drama, sensuality, wit and talent! These dazzling performers have got it all – and the bar has never been set higher.

More Info

Miss Burlesque Australia (MBA) is a unique competition, which positions modern burlesque both within its rich historical tapestry and burlesque’s revival as a modern performance based art form.

The competition situates itself within the neo-burlesque revival as a theatrical performance-based art form that incorporates elements of striptease as a theatrical cocktail of sexuality and satire.

Our goal is to provide a platform for performers to create their best work. We encourage supportive professional development through constructive criticism from industry leaders and to raise the professional standard within the burlesque industry.

The core values of the burlesque revival are emboldened with empowerment and feminism. Miss Burlesque Australia seeks to uphold an all-inclusive competition and encourages diversity, body positivity and aligns itself with the LGBTQI community.

After the selection process 6-8 applicants from each state will be invited to compete in their state final. The winner from each will go on to compete at the Grand Final and the coveted title of Miss Burlesque Australia.
