She's frilly, she's fine, she's Chantilly Divine!!
Sweet as a button by nature, hot and saucy by design this fire and ice performer always brings her sweet sweet chantilly cream to the stage with a big old dollop of hot sauce!
Dancing since the age of 5 and teaching since the age of 16 Chantilly adores the variety that dance has to offer. Dancing Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Arco and Modern with The Beverly Margaret School of Dance Chantilly, finally at the age of 12, found her niche with Humphreys in the style she excelled in….Ballroom!

The variety of Burlesque and Vintage dance styles they offered had her kicking up her heels and stomping the floorboards once again.

Being able to adapt those skills into making costumes for Burlesque dancers and her students is one of her most humble passions.

Now, what is burlesque, you may ask? A cynic might say it’s just a creative way of taking off your clothes but somehow the music, feathers, sparkles and, yes, nipple tassels come together to make so much more. The event was a riot of colour and cheek with an incredible array of acts, ranging from the hilarious to the tantalisingly provocative.With music from the Perth Cabaret Collective, there…
