As a cabaret burlesque performer, Gazelle is renowned for “boldly bounding across the stage” and for “inspiring and exciting the divine”.

In other performance roles, a Music Theatre degree from CQUniversity has also helped her work across a very diverse range of platforms.

“I’ve been privileged to see the inspiring effect the arts have on society,” Gazelle says.

“In the six years since graduating from CQUniversity’s Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music I’ve done more than 50 performance jobs.”

The popular performer with Saphhira’s Showgirls has recently also taken on a role as a teacher with the Melbourne-based venue.

She’s also been working for Flying Bookworms and Carp Productions as a theatre in education actor.

Gazelle has done tumbling training with Circus Oz, stilt work with the Horatio’s Jar creative studio, and Aerial Pole Training with Bottoms Up Burlesque.

Her stage performance CV ranges from productions of Glengarry Glen Ross, Godspell, and Sleeping Beauty, The Musical, through to more spicy fare such as The Living Museum of Erotic Women and the Shoppe of Curiosity Show.

Gazelle has appeared in a range of short films. She’s also appeared in commercials for Tiger Airline, Snap Fitness and Qantas (as a former member of the Australian Girls Choir), and has been a TV extra in Neighbours and a movie extra in the Australian film Sucker.

Dance skills have been called upon for shows at live venues including the Melbourne Cricket Ground 20/20 cricket, Melbourne’s Swiss Colour Run and the Raw International Festival.

She’s also performed as a “Santa Skater’ for Crown Cuisine and as a featured dancer for the Alex Taylor Experience music video.

Gazelle has done modelling jobs for campaigns by Woolworths and Viking Beer, among others.

During her time at CQUniversity Mackay Ooralea campus, she had the chance to tour with the award-winning Choices schoolies safety production.

She also had the chance to work with professional music theatre directors such as Dale Pengelly (as a Kit Kat dancer in Cabaret and as a minor principle in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels the Musical), Thern Reynolds (in the chorus of Anything Goes), and Chloe Dallimore (in the cast of Sweet Charity).

Gazelle was also a leading lady in Chess the Musical (directed by John Wregg).
