Willow J – Biography:  Melbourne based performer 

Willow J fell in-love with Burlesque in 2002 and has been bumpin’ her butt and sharing her erotic, comical and sometimes dark and twisted tales with audiences around the globe ever since.  The journey began with the notorious neo-burlesque troupe Voodoo Trash Dolls (2002 – 2009) receiving the award for best Victorian Burlesque Troupe 2006; and most recently as a solo artist  (2009 – present). Trained in many different dance and movement forms including Bouffant with acclaimed master Phillippe Gaulier, her original and provocative self-devised pieces draw from cross-disciplined art forms including acting, tango, bouffant, butoh, and martial arts. As a director, producer, choreographer and award-winning actor Willow J’s work extends to film, TV, theatre, physical theatre, performance art, and experimental theatre. 

In 2008 Willow J, along with co-founder, opened the doors to Australia’s most fierce school of Burlesque & Pole Dancing – Bottoms Up! Since then she has developed a unique dance/theatre training program and has taught thousands of women, including award winning performers, the seductive, sensual fun-lovin art of burlesque
