Renowned New York City bellydancers Layla Isis and Mariyah have worked together on various collaborations of their own and as members of several dance companies since 2008.  In 2012 they teamed up to form Entelechy Dance Theatre and went on to produce a series of theatrical dance concerts performed at Drom in 2013 and 2014 to wide acclaim.  They are also the co-founders of Infinity Bellydance, a dance company offering special event entertainment that has performed yearly at Drom for The Bellydance Spectacular along with Sira since 2011.

They are both long-time members of the Dalia Carella Dance Collective and the Arabic music and dance ensemble Zikrayat, in addition to their own thriving solo careers in the Middle Eastern dance world.   Individually and collectively, they have collaborated in countless theatrical productions, instructional and performance DVDs and taught workshops around the world. Notable credits include Lincoln Center, Town Hall, events at The United Nations, The Bellydance Superstars, Dr. Oz, Late Night with Conan O'Brian, Sex and the City 2, HBO's Vinyl.
