Dragonfly Dance Company

Dragonfly Dance Company was formed in 2014 by "partners in crime" Zahira & Ruyah with a select group of accomplished professionals and advanced students, dedicated to presenting unique, artistic, creative full length stage productions in Toronto that are open to exploration while keeping great respect for the traditional forms of the dance. 


Always with a versatile focus,  the foundation of the company is Oriental Raqs Sharqi, composed by both Egyptian and International Oriental styles. The company's vision is open to the exploration of the richness and diversity of the language of movement that is bellydance in all its forms, styles, derivations and relations: from thetraditional rich folklore variety of the Middle East to the modern developments of Bellydance fusion and the enthralling images of Bellydance fantasy. 


Celebrating art and tradition, imagination and creativity, the experience of life, and the enormous, universal range of human emotion expressed through the unique movement vocabulary of bellydance. DDC affirms bellydance as an art form on its own merit and an artistic language of expression, through which dancers and choreographers, explore music, rhythm, culture, imagination, sensitivity and ultimately, the experience of life through movement.


Dragonfly Dance Company produced 2 full length theatrical dance shows in Toronto, Canada, at the Alumnae Theatre.
