Angelica has been performing in various styles for 20 years and discovered burlesque in New Zealand in late 2011. She immediately fell in love with this genre and its potential for full artistic expression and celebration of femininity and confidence.
Angelica's first encounter with dance was early on in ballet but that childhood dream was not meant to be. She found her element later in ballroom and Latin dancing but also worked as a gogo/podium dancer, she was part of a modern dance troupe and trained in belly dance and flamenco. She likes to utilize this varied dance experience in her burlesque by blending styles.
This cosmopolitan vixen is the True Bohemian, from Czech Republic that is. She is fiery yet romantic, raunchy yet subtle, like an angel with a devil inside or the other way round depending on what she wants to show you first. She loves to put these polarities into her burlesque in variety of styles from classic to neo. She is equally comfortable in glamorous classic flirty or romantic routines as well as in very neo concepts and fetish numbers. Sometimes she will tease you crazy in a glamorous outfit or she turns into a raunchy dominatrix other times she will make you cry and reach to the depths of your soul and yet another time, she can make you laugh. Her love of arts, movies and fashion reflects in her inspirations and costumes for memorable concept routines.
Angelica has won the title of first runner up at Miss Burlesque NZ 2015 and second runner up in 2014. She performs regularly at various show in Australasia and around Europe and at international burlesque festivals including the Australian and New Zealand, twice at Como Lake Festival in Italy, Perth in Australia or prestigious Show Me Burlesque Festival in St. Louis USA, where she went twice as part of her three USA tours. During the last tour in 2016, she was awarded Best Costume at Oklahoma Burlesque Festival for her famous signature routine Mucha Goddess. She has headlined shows in USA, Germany and France and is soon to appear at performances in various places in Italy, France and Germany as well as the exotic Iceland. Overall she has performed in 15 countries around the world.
In 2013 Angelica founded Bohemian Burlesque, production company for lavish high class shows in Czech republic and in New Zealand. Her production was the first international burlesque show in Czech republic and the very first burlesque in her hometown of Brno, where Bohemian Burlesque created solid fan base since.
