Viola Verve

Viola Verve delights the senses with decadence & sensuality. Her performances are diverse in their range, from romantic vintage to seductive & powerful classics. Her neo performances range from Nerdlesque, to bold & eccentric performances.

Viola is an award winning burlesque performer & vintage pinup, and a regular in the Adelaide Burlesque scene over the past 8 years. She has taken part in & produced sell out shows over the last six years in Fringe World Perth, Adelaide Fringe, Cabaret Fringe & Stirling Fringe, and has captivated audiences with her involvement in productions across Australia.


Viola is the owner & producer of production companies ‘Deco Dolls’, ‘Once Upon a Teaser’ and ‘A Burlesque Teaser’, and regularly brings sell-out seasons to the Australian audiences.


When Viola isn’t producing or performing, she is the resident burlesque instructor for Kelly Dance studios, Pole 4 Fitness & Burly Q Events, loves teaching and giving back to others in her local community, and firmly believes in creating a safe & supportive place for emerging artists. 

Viola will mesmerise you as she ignites the stage with her smouldering intensity & sultry moves. This is one alluring bombshell you won’t soon forget!
