Once upon a time there were two prim and proper ballerinas from New Zealand. They were young, innocent and full of hopes and dreams for the future. 

One day the pair got themselves lost on the way home from Sunday school. In hopes of getting directions they followed a trail of sequins and the sound of jazz music and down the rabbit hole they went to behold sights, sounds and wonders beyond their wildest imagination. The rest is history!

Dahlia Dangerous and Trillian met 7 years ago as they prepared to debut as solo performers. The two rapidly cemented their position within the local and international industries, safe to say The Ballet School Dropouts are New Zealand's favourite burlesque duet.

 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.
