WINNER: Judge’s Choice “Glitoris” Award at Alterna-TEASE 2016
SELECTED TO COMPETE IN: 2017 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, "Best Debut"
This act fuses a classic costume with a neo-sensibility in order to speak out against the microaggressions that people with disabilities face on a daily basis. On a projector screen behind her, Jacqueline displays ableist statements that have been said either directly to her or her disabled friends. While these larger-than-life words attempt to steal focus, she battles against them with an aggressive and sexual striptease that defiantly takes power back. The conflict between screen and performer replicates the dissonance felt by many people with disabilities as they fight to remain self-assured within an ableist world.
Note: Jacqueline can supply projector and screen if necessary.

WINNER: 2nd Runner Up at The 2017 Golden Legend Champion Challenge
SELECTED TO PERFORM AT: 2018 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, "Movers, Shakers & Innovators Showcase"
This neo-burlesque act set to Demi Lovato's "Confident" is energetic, acrobatic, and powerful. Jacqueline inverts, snaps, pops, and pulls three kinds of splits in black fishnet and emerald green feathers and lace. This act was developed under the mentorship of burlesque legend Gabriella Maze for the 2017 Golden Legend Champion Challenge.

SELECTED TO COMPETE IN: 2022 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, 'Miss Exotic World'
In this classic-style slow burn act to a deliciously sleazy neo song, Jacqueline appears in all white on her wheelchair throne. She teases with a feather fan that turns into an impressive shoulder harness and uses her wheelchair’s brakes to remove her gloves.

This classic burlesque act using Jacqueline’s wheelchair is seductive and prowling in all tones of blue, from fur-trimmed robe to chiffon panel skirt. Jacqueline invites you to join her in a celebration of the sensual and evocative power of blue and the blues, a color which speaks to her personality. She indulges on stage and invites you to indulge as well.
EVIL QUEEN OF THE WORLD

As a modern version of Snow White’s Evil Queen Grimhilde, Jacqueline appears first in her throne-outfitted wheelchair. She dominates the audience with aggressive musicality and sensual floor-work, reminding them why she is the “f**king king of the world.” Towards the end of the act, she discovers her mirror and becomes entranced with her own image, making the final moments a self-appreciation and a spectacle simultaneously.

What does a ballerina get up to backstage? In this act, Jacqueline portrays a ballet dancer rebelliously enthralled with her own sensuality, and her own feet. Despite a traditionally white and fluffy exterior, she reveals black vinyl fetish boots and leather undergarments and finishes with a reveal of her bare feet. She reaches up towards them as the light fades away, focused inward instead of on the audience.
NOTE: This act can be transformed into a Christmas act by the addition of the Nutcracker Suite onto the beginning of the track or be performed as is.

This nerdlesque act was originally done as a duet in the Seattle burlesque play Burl-X-Men: Days of Future Ass. However, as a solo act, Jacqueline directs her movements towards the audience instead of Jean Gray and assures them that she knows exactly “what’s on [their] mind.”
