"Miss Burlesque ACT 2016, Jazida, was music made visible – her arms were pure melody, her hips an extension of Kitty’s kit, her smile an extension of the wry mischief in the lyrics."
Jonathan - Absinthe Reviews
"Brilliant choreography, fantastic music pieces and elegantly embellished outfits created a feast for the eyes"
Sanja - All Over Adelaide
With her exotic looks and pint-sized, albeit womanly physique, remained alluring as she threw herself into the splits and threw off her attire.

Canberra Burlesque Performer
Jazida is a Canberra-based entertainer, producer and teacher. 21st Century Burlesque Magazine says “I will not forget her any time soon” and listed her as #46 in the Top 50 most influential burlesque industry figures across the globe for 2020.
Jazida has become recognised as one of Australia’s premiere burlesque performers, having been accepted to perform at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas in 2018 and virtually in 2020, chosen as the representative Australian Headliner for the Perth International Burlesque Festival in 2019, selected as a Featured Artist for the Australian Burlesque Festival 2019, and selected as teacher on the Australian Burlesque Cruise 2020!
Her creativity, cheeky, and fun performance style (with a specialty in fan dancing) has won the heart of audiences and judges. Her feature show “Catch Jazida” won Best Dance at the Adelaide Fringe Festival Weekly Awards, and she has won many other awards including Miss Burlesque ACT 2016, Baby Bombshells as part of the Australian Burlesque Festival 2016 , and Burlesque Idol Canberra 2015.
As well as being a performer, Jazida works to elevate alternate performing arts and support the industry by producing shows through Jazida Productions and running classes through Flazéda, managing performance troupes (particularly Jazida’s Fabulous Fan Dancers) and also run workshops across Australia. In 2020 Jazida Productions won the Canberra Local Business Awards for Outstanding Performing Arts and two years running was voted in the top 10 of people who have made the biggest contribution to the Australian Burlesque Scene at The Busties (the Australian Burlesque Industry Awards)
Jazida regularly produces sold out shows (“Decadence and Debauchery” being her main touring variety night). She works to facilitate professional development opportunities for local alternate performing artists and is passionate about artist development (herself receiving a grant for creative development from ArtsACT in the ACT Government in 2019 and another in 2020). In addition to this, her passion for burlesque has seen her become co-director of the board for the Australian Burlesque Museum.
Her flair for theatrics is combined with technical versatility, allows Jazida to incorporate a range of aesthetics into her acts (making her available for neo burlesque performances, classic burlesque performances, fan dancing, live improvisation, corporate gigs, theatre productions and community/PG events). This versatility stems from her background in belly dancing where she debuted on stage in 2009 soon becoming a seasoned belly dancer in Turkish restaurants across Canberra.
Jazida’s passion for burlesque, combined with her versatility and performance style has sky rocketted her career, taking her across the world to perform at iconic events such as the Burlesque Hall of Fame (Las Vegas, 2018), Perth International Burlesque Festival (2019) Miss Burlesque Australia (Canberra and Darwin 2016), The Australian Burlesque Festival (Melbourne and Sydney 2016 and Melbourne 2017, Alice Springs 2018, Brisbane and Melbourne 2019), Tease in the Tropics (Cairns, Townsville and Magnetic Island, 2018), Burlesque Showboat (Melbourne, 2015, 2018, 2018), Ausdance Dance Week (2018, 2019), Rumble (Canberra 2019), Vanguard Burlesque (Brisbane, 2017), Red Light Confidential (Sydney 2015 and 2016, Melbourne 2017, Adelaide 2018 and 2019), Nocturnal Fever (Melbourne 2018, 2019, Adelaide and Melbourne 2019), Ironfest (Lithow 2018, 2019), This is Burlesque (Mackay 2018, 2019), Sunday Night Burlesque (Brisbane, 2015), the Adelaide Fringe Festival (Adelaide 2017, 2018, 2019), the National Folk Festival (Canberra, 2012, 2017, 2018), the Tribal an Trance Festival (Sydney, 2010), Floriade (Canberra, over several years), the Newcastle Bellydance Festival (2016, 2017, 2018), the Sydney Middle Eastern Dance Festival (Sydney, 2011) and the Canberra Multicultural Festival (Canberra, over several years).
