About the Troupe

Jazida’s Fabulous Dancers are a performance troupe that have developed through weekly classes at the Canberra Dance Theatre. They have a wide repotoire of choreographies written by Jazida who won the title of Miss Fantastic at the Miss Burlesque Australia competition in 2016 for the best fan dancing.

The troupe is inspired to use feather fans and silk fan veils in a wide range of creative ways and takes influence from bellydance, burlesque, jazz, circus, fire, water and so much more. Acts feature work with single fans, double fans, open and closed fan as well as lots of fun staging.

With a line up that expands and contracts like the universe itself, the troupe is fluid and performers can range from 2 to 15 people depending on availability! The fan veil troupe prides itself on containing a variety of performers - several of whom are star solo performers in their own right. Ages range from teens to 50s and sizes from small to large! This troupe demonstrates that anyone can have a wonderful time with a set of fans to dance with!

Key representatives within the troupe include Jazida (winner of Miss Burlesque ACT 2016, Baby Bombshells 2016 and Burlesque Idol Canberra 2015), Rainbow (ambassador for Burlesque Idol Australia 2017), several members of the well established Obsidian Bellydance Professional Performance Troupe and many more!

Their fun choreographies and joyful delivery has seen this troupe booked to perform at several key events in Canberra and nearby cities including the Newcastle Bellydance Festival, Mondayitis Cabaret, Industrial Illumination as part of the Enlighten Festival at the Royal Australian Mint, High Brow at the LoBrow, Ode to Eve, the Canberra Multicultural Festival, the Canberra Curry Festival and many more. They even featured as backup dancers a part of Miss Burlesque ACT in 2016.
