More about Lady Magnolia

Lady Magnolia first fell in love with burlesque 6 years ago when she met Starr and Scar-lit from Black Orchid Burlesque. She is an accomplished belly dancer who has been teaching and performing with her studio, The Feminine Divine, for 11 years. Burlesque afforded her the opportunity to hop skip and jump over the established belly dance boundaries into the land of pasties and g strings where she has been at home ever since.

Lady Magnolia established The Rouge Revue in 2010 and has been producing burlesque shows both on an amateur and professional level since 2012. She and her wife, Dear Mrs Panda, produce one of South Africa’s most saucy productions, Born Risque. In 2015 Lady Magnolia and The Rouge Revue hosted the first annual,  Grand Exhibition, An International Burlesque Benefit, which raised R28 000 for Rape Crisis.

Lady Magnolia and The Rouge Revue hosted South Africa’s first international guest artist, Louise De Ville in 2013 and in 2014, hosted American sweetheart, Peekaboo Pointe in what is fast becoming an annual tradition.

Lady Magnolia and Dear Mrs Panda’s love for burlesque extends so far that they chose to spend their honeymoon in 2013 attending the New Orleans and New York burlesque Festival in the USA where they met their favorite burlesque stars, Ginger Valentine, Missy Lisa, Vicky Butterfly, Pearl Noir, Medianoche and many others.

Lady Magnolia is a passionate teacher and performer who’s greatest wish is to empower women through her classes and performances.
