Please read below to ensure your event goes as smoothly as possible! The following information is required for the client to receive a quote for any event.
Even if Sa'diyya appears to be booked according to her calendar, still inquire because it may be feasible.
Since the performer(s) are usually on a tight schedule that includes performances before and after your scheduled event, the performance must remain on time.
What is the city and what is the venue (home, restaurant, hotel ballroom, city park?) Sa'diyya is available to do dance performances in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and beyond!
Any occasion is suitable for a belly dancer! Sa'diyya's family-oriented performances bring fun and joy to any event! NO bachelor parties and NO private dances.
-Length of Show?
Usually, the typical belly dance show is about 30 minutes, but it is not limited to this. The shows can be less or more than the typical show.
-How Many Shows?
Go ahead and book multiple shows! Sa'diyya makes each show a completely different experience with costume changes, music changes and prop changes! Multiple shows that are scheduled back to back are the best deal.
-How Much Dance Space is There?
Belly dance can be performed in any amount of space. Although, the quality of the show is much better the more space the performer(s) have to perform in. Also, props such as swords, canes and veils are more easily used by the performer(s) the more space she/they have. The ideal is at least a 12' by 12' dance floor.
-How High are the Ceilings?
Higher ceilings equal better quality shows as well, letting the performer(s) have more flexibility in the props she/they choose to dance with.
-What Type of Floor Surface is it?
A smooth, CLEAN floor is ideal. Outdoor or harsh surface areas will require the dancer to wear shoes.
-How Many Guests?
10 plus guests make a party. NO private dances.
-Will There be a Private Changing Area Available?
The performer(s) need an area to change before and after the performance. A private area besides a public ladies' room is preferred.
-What kind of Sound System will be Available?
A DJ or a CD player with powerful speakers is a must. Sa'diyya does not bring her own sound system to events. The louder the volume, the better!
The location's phone number, customer's phone number and an alternate contact person's phone number will be needed at the time of booking.
-Do You Want Audience Participation?
Some people want to be involved in the show by having the performer(s) get up unsuspecting audience members to dance, and others simple want a dance presentation. It's up to you!
~Sa'diyya is always accompanied by a chaperone to all of her performances~
Something to consider...
Is price the most important issue for you when hiring entertainment? You will certainly be able to find a bellydancer for much less than the going rate, but they will not be professionals or even very talented dancers. Remember the old adage, "You get what you pay for." It's usually true.
Clowns, DJs, impersonators, etc. charge more or the same as bellydancers. Many times customers think my rates are too expensive, but they tend to forget that they paid for quality when hiring catering, a DJ, decor and more! Why skimp on the bellydancer? By hiring a top-notch pro, you will be insured a magnificent and unforgettable experience! You end up venturing into unknown waters by hiring a non-professional bellydancer (beware that many non-professionals bill themselves as pros. Don't hesitate to check their credentials like experience, video clips, if they charge the going rate, etc.). If you want a quality dancer, be prepared to pay the going rate, which is anywhere from $175 (low end for 5 min shows) to upwards of $300 per dancer for private, one-time events.
The highest quality, most professional bellydancers spend thousands of dollars on furthering their dance education, buying exquisite, expensive costumes for stage, investing in high quality cosmetics for stage, buying the latest and most popular music, dance props and the list goes on. Most professional dancers can't afford to present the highest quality shows unless they charge the going rate or better. They put a large percentage of what they make back into their art form.
Thank you for supporting your local professional bellydancers!
