Ooooooooh we finally had a chance to look through the photos from the last VBC Presents Student Showcase. What a night we had! The performers were all on fire (photographic evidence here) and we are so stoked from the show and the audience energy that we’re plotting to do a bigger show in September. Giant congratulations to all the stunning performers who graced the @emeraldsupperclub stage - the audience could not get enough of you! You’re all stars!! Big thanks to @pinupz_and_burlesque for the lovely images. ✨✨✨✨ . . #vbcpresents #studentshowcase #rockstars #studentperformance #burlesqueperformance #vancouverisburlesque #burlesquestudio #vbc #vancouverburlesquecentre
Did you know that the Instructors of the VBC are frequently hired to train fitness models and body builders on their stage presence, walks and routines for competitions? @misscherryontop just worked with the awesome @laurasutton70 on her Lotus-inspired routine for her last comp where she placed 3rd in Masters and 5th in Open. Congratulations Laura! You worked so hard. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 DM us for more info if you’re looking to polish up your routine or stage presence. ✨✨✨✨ . . #bodybuilders #canadianbodybuilding #polishyourroutine #workshopping #coaching #stagepresence #movementclasses #burlesquestudio #vbc #vancouverburlesquecentre

Y'all are in for a special treaaaaat! We have a special guest dropping in for a surprise visit tonight! This sad Drac is sick and tired of the same old thing. It’s all creeping and sneaking, biting and sucking the life blood. Never any time for Dracula. Never any sunshine. He’s been in the dark for 800 years and tonight he’s stepping into the stage light to show you that once in a while, reality can be what you make it. Don't be scared of this fanged creature, he wants to see you tonight! Psssst... it just might be @donnabossrogers !
It's showtime tonight! You're in for a treat because you will get to see a new act by our scholarship student, @beeappletini ! Bee Appletini is the Betty Boop of Burlesque, charming and cute with vintage twist. Don't be fooled by her cute exterior, this girl's a force to be reckoned with and doesn't let anyone tell her what to do! Bee recently performed in VIBF as the first ever Fresh Faced Feature this past April, and most recently graced the stage for Fierce! Queer Burlesque Festival in Toronto last month! She is also a member of the Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society and the current VBC scholarship student! Doors 8, Show 9, by donation at @emeraldsupperclub !
We hope you're as excited as we are to welcome Sadie to the Emerald Supper Club stage next Wednesday for VBC Presents! A Student Showcase July 4 at The Emerald! Sadie is excited to be baring it all (or most of it, anyway) in her VBC student showcase debut. A long time burlesque fan, Sadie worked up the courage to try the art form out for herself in January. Thanks to the supportive, body-positive, and inclusive environment at the VBC, she's found the confidence to shake, shimmy, and sashay her way into her first ever solo performance! Sadie wishes to thank you, the audience, for your encouragement and hopes to "Hypnotize U" with her sultry routine.
Y'all better be ready for the most special treat!! So thrilled to introduce our amazing host for the show next week!! Let's all meet the uber talented @xx_misskiss_xx ! A very naughty treat; cute as pie but also dark AF. She trained at CapU for Musical Theatre and has won multiple awards over her years as an actress. Perhaps this is why her many character cosplays are always so on point! She is a core member of Pandora and The Locksmiths but also frequently guest stars or hosts in other productions around the city. Previous appearances include Lost Girls Burlesque, NSFW, The Orchid Club, Geekenders, Sex at the Circus, Beatles Burlesque and of course the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival! She's basically a much hotter Alice Cooper/sugar coated OG badass from Surrey/goth Mickey Mouse. . . Intrigued? Because you should be! The babe of bangs and fangs, it's Miss Kiss! Catch Miss Kiss and a whole lot more at the @emeraldsupperclub !
Y’all are lucky it’s Friday so you get to meet a second babe performing at next weeks show! We can't wait for Lilliane Lynx to take the stage! Returning from a five year hiatus, Lillianne Lynx is back and ready to once again grace the stage. A biologist by day and stripper by night, this Vancouver-born wild cat has been attending the Vancouver Burlesque Centre for seven glorious years. In search of an excuse to make highly extravagant costumes, Lillianne wandered into the VBC one day and immediately fell madly in love with the world of burlesque. Her obsession with fabrics, glitter and fringe found a home among this amazingly talented and welcoming community of artists. She performed at several shows throughout the city, including past VBC Showcases and Kitty Nights Burlesque, before moving to Montreal to complete her Master of Science. Now she's back and has finally found the time to break out the sewing machine and get back in the groove. Be prepared to be-dazzled by this feisty feline. Y'all better be at the show July 4th! VBC Presents! A Student Showcase July 4 at @emeraldsupperclub
Let's meet another babe performing at the VBC Presents! A Student Showcase July 4 at @emeraldsupperclub ! We would love to welcome Shevani to the Emerald Supper Club stage! Shevani ; originating from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia ; is the lead vocalist of Exis Perellis a downtempo, acid jazz, electronic band with producer/ trumpeter Graham How. Shevani has been performing and teaching tribal belly dance for five years, and her work has been showcased at the Kamloops Burlesque Show, The Goddess Festival and the Penticton Tribal Bellydance festival. Her project Exis perellis has been compared to Portishead, Morcheeba and Sade.
Let's meet our stars of the July 4th show at the @emeraldsupperclub 🎉 First up, @mxdeetwenty !! Dee Twenty is a Queer Dragolicious Dungeon Crawler who put all their specialization points into weird. They are a member of both the Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society and the Geekenders. Dee is the Executive Director of the Ghost Light Vaudeville Society and the recipient of the 2018 Vancouver International Burlesque Festival's Wacky Weirdo Awards. See Dee and a whole lot more on Wednesday July 4th at the Emerald Supper Club !
