In this battle of the tease, you gotta think on your feet, conquer and defeat, tackle the obstacles to take the title. Skye High Burlesque presents Perth’s newest burlesque competition, with a titty twisting turn. With elements of cheesy game shows and iconic beauty pageants then fusing it altogether with burlesque to make one outrageous riot of a competition.
The Rules are simple no fire, no water, no mess, just burlesque, with low stress.
What’s this… is it a shimmy or a shake… nothing fake but you gotta grab a mate!
You have to compete in pairs as a team of 2. So, find your duo buddy and team up. What will it be? Rival, dream team, dynamic duo or frenemy, partners in crime or lovers divine. The choice is yours.
6 teams / 3 rounds / 3 awards / 1 tease champion Team
Round 1 : SHOW OFF INQUIRY
Strut your stuff, show us what ya got….
Teams will strut the stage in the outfit of their choosing, matching or not. Then its time for the Q&A. A silly question requires an equally silly answer. Make it up, make it real, make it you. There are no wrong answers to the right question.
Teams will be paired randomly to strut the stage and enter into a pose off as if they are versing each other. Once all 3 pairs of teams have completed the strut and pose they will then come back on stage 1 team at a time to compete in the Q&A pageant style.
- Before leaving the stage the teams will choose an envelop with the next round info including the prop they will use in round 2
Round 2 : SHIMMY SHAKE DOWN
We challenge you to a dance off….
Paired teams will go head to head in a dance battle. Using their own skills and style to the best of their ability and think on their feet in grand improv style.
*if a team puts a prop down the other can steal it, forcing their opponent to have to use the other prop
*teams can convince others to swap props with them
