Thanks to to Louise Rio Wild for having us and to Luciana Cristea for joining the Sapphira’s Showgirls promotional team for the day. You could say everyone wanted to play with our… (beach) balls!

Welcome to Sapphira’s Showgirls. We have adopted the butterfly as our emblem of transformation following our founder, Sapphira’s own experience overcoming mental illness 20 years ago. Butterflies are delicate creatures that delight us with the effortless beauty, freedom and above all are a symbol that every situation is offering the chance to grow, transform and triumph. 
We believe burlesque is transformational and we invite you as audience or performers, participants or spectators to enjoy the spectacle of our shows at the Ibiza Burlesque Festival.
