Bellydance in the heart of Toronto
The Dragonettes was formed in 2010 as a specialized Bellydance Fusion Ensemble. With a deep inspiration in the Steampunk genre, The Dragonettes led by Zahira, quickly became Toronto’s unique Steampunk inspired troupe. Comprised of a select ensemble of bellydance artists, the Dragonettes have delved into Dragonfly’s signature SteamFusions style since the inception of the SteamFusions class in October, 2010.
The Dragonetees have performed as headliners, special guests and featured performers in some of the most iconic Steampunk and fantasy events in Toronto, the GTA and Southern Ontario, including The Grand Canadian Steampunk Exhibition, Steam on Queen, Fan Expo, Ad-Astra, Nuit Blanche, Whitby Steampunk Festival, WitchFest North, just to name a few.
They have shared the stage with the likes of Abney Park, Prof. Elemental, and Johnny Hollow.
The Dragonettes have also worked in larger projects and collaborations with Mirage, Lisa Webb, Dragonfly Troupe, Dragonfly Company, and Laura Atma.
The Dragonettes repertoire includes pirate songs, clockwork dolls, steampunk fairies, postapocalyptic imaginations, and extends to soundtracks, goth, Balkan music and electronica.
