Behind the Ibiza Burlesque Festival is the production company known as Sapphira’s Showtime with a motive to elevate, expand and, where needed, improve the professionalism of the burlesque industry.

We love burlesque and believe it is so life-changing that we started teaching classes with our company in London over 12 years ago and we have never looked back.

Sapphira’s Showtime is now proud to have worked with over 500 performers, contracted dance instructors and professionals worldwide along with producing some 200 events, one of them a successful Record Setter World Record Attempt for the Fastest Burlesque Glove Peel Relay.

In all this time of teaching and creating events, we have dealt with a huge scope of people linked to burlesque.

– performers
– multinational corporate and blue chip companies
– dance studio owners
– graphic designers
– print production houses
– costume designers
– photographers & filmmakers & videographers
– press outlets, broadcast TV, newspapers, magazines, podcasts & radio

As we opened up our Ibiza Burlesque Festival applications, we realised that performers needed a training programme to help them market their talents and know how to connect the dots between their dreams and getting support from businesses, thus:

Boost Your Burlesque Strategy was born!

This programme is a coaching programme facilitated by festival director, Sapphira.

It has expanded beyond the Ibiza Burlesque Festival because we have found performers all over the world contacting us to be part of it.

It has focus modules delivered as self-study elements on the World Burlesque Academy App, as well as live Zoom tutorials to learn together.

So far we have:

– 17 countries
– 52 graduates
– major press features in TV, print and radio for artists in Poland, Finland, Sweden, USA, UK & South Africa

A Certificate of Achievement – Grace InDecent & Lappeenranta Burleski Ry

The Ibiza Burlesque Festival is returning to the Island in 2022 after two years of virtual programmes and is proud to announce presenting its first Certificate of Achievement.

Grace InDecent , a burlesque performer and chairwoman of Lappeenranta Burleski Ry a burlesque association in Finland, will be awarded with the certificate for her efforts. Whilst working with support from her team Anna EnsiLempi and ZiiZii Baker, Grace has shown leadership skills as a performer and spokesperson in successfully obtaining a grant. The funding was granted from a private foundation dedicated to promoting art, science, and other fields of intellectual and cultural endeavor in Finland, The Finnish Cultural Foundation, South Karelia Regional Fund. Securing this grant for 7500€ enabled the artform of burlesque to gain more fans and awareness during the uncertain time of the pandemic.

Grace InDecent, aka Hanna Karppinen, started her burlesque career by joining Lappeenranta Burleski association at the end of 2018. Few months later she was already performing for a live audience and from the beginning of 2019 she became the chairwoman of the association and has been running it passionately ever since. She loves burlesque because as an art form it is so versatile and liberating and its message of unity and body positivity touches her deeply.

It has meant so much to me that we achieved this grant,” says Grace “Because we were able to create a wonderful and uplifting day filled with burlesque in the midst of depressing times of covid-19 restrictions and with the money we were able to not just pay properly for the performers but also experiment in organizing an event both onsite and virtually without financial risk.”

Lappeenranta Burleski ry was established in August 2018 to promote and raise the profile of burlesque culture in South Karelia, an area in Finland, by offering various workshops, dance courses and other activities for burlesque lovers, and by organizing burlesque events and performances. The association organises weekly burlesque classes for its 24 members in its own studio near the city center.

Grace has also been part of an online learning platform for burlesque professionals and directors learning with the Ibiza Burlesque Festival owner, Sapphira. Taking part in Sapphira’s Boost Your Burlesque Strategy ‘6 Week Level Up Challenge’ she has been connecting and learning with artists from all over the world about media, marketing and press skills. This is part of an overall vision upheld for World Burlesque Day of which the Ibiza Burlesque Festival takes part to make sure more people try and experience the life-changing art of burlesque.

When Grace InDecent joined the Boost Your Burlesque Strategy mentoring programme I soon noticed her aptitude for business and organisational skills as securing a grant is a big achievement, especially facing the difficulties of the event taking place during the turbulent time of the pandemic,” says Ibiza Burlesque Festival founder, Sapphira. “So the festival co-producer, Tonestepa, and I wanted to elevate the work she has done as a both a performer, leader and chairwoman in burlesque.”

The certificate will be presented during the events of the festival 2nd – 4th September 2022.
