Trixi Tassels is your resident tassel-twirling temptress, winning the coveted ‘Best Technique’ trophy at the 2013 Stockholm Burlesque Festival tassel twirling competition. Her twirling secrets come from body isolation technique which she developed during a previous career as an Egyptian-style bellydancer. In 2008 Trixi discovered the world of burlesque through Australian super-troupe Sugar Blue Burlesque. She performed and taught with Sugar Blue Burlesque until moving to London in 2011 where she has been based ever since, performing regularly throughout the UK and Europe, and now co-teaching beginner and advanced burlesque courses with Luscious Burlesque.
