Meet the Team

Sapphira – Academy Founder/Owner


I love to inspire women and bring out the confidence and showgirl that is in each and every one of them. I re-discovered dancing at the age of 23 and my own increased self-confidence through performing burlesque inspired me to teach. I learnt from amazing teachers including Azura, Mia Serra, Natacha Atlas, Ozgen, Princess Farhana, Jo King and Marietta Mehanni. I have also done many profound life-changing personal development courses in Self-Esteem, Sexuality and Connection with More To Life and Soul Voice® and bring a fresh angle of increasing positivity and self-love into all courses at the academy.
