Once upon a time there were two prim and proper ballerinas, full of hopes and dreams for the future, found themselves lost on the way home from Sunday school. They happened upon a glittery door sporting a Red Delicious apple and hoping to get directions, the pair entered the establishment and came out dressed only in their dignity. The rest is history!

Dahlia Dangerous and Trillian met 5 years ago as they prepared to debut as solo performers. 2017 saw the pair voted New Zealand's Favourite Burlesque Duo at the Golden Garter Awards. Collectively they have over 50 years’ experience in various styles of dance and performance, using their exceptional talent for synchronicity to create intense and powerful acts that will leave you clinging to the edge of your seat and begging for more.
