She was great but too short felt like she was there for few minutes
We did an Arabian Nights theme for our prom this year and I contacted Ariana to perform a belly dance and she added the fire show which was even more than I could have ever expected. And wow. She impressed everyone. People are still talking about her days after the event. Not only was she professional, but she was fun!!!! She got high school kids to get out there and perform with her and they loved it. It absolutely made their nights. We still don't know how she did half the stuff she did, but the show was worth twice as much as she charged. She is a true gem, and once my daughter is old enough to know what a birthday party is, we are hiring Ariana as a mermaid!
Response from Ariana:
I'm grateful to have been apart of such a wonderful event. Best Prom Ever ;) Thank you again, hope to see you again!
Ariana was so great. She was on time and ready to go. The kids had the best time with her and I have already recommended her to all of my friends.
Ariana put on an amazing performance for our Annual Halloween Party! She engaged the crowd and really complimented our party. Our guests were amazed by both dance and her beauty! A great addition to our event! We recommend her and will be having her back for future events!
Ariana was absolutely a joy to have at our daughter's birthday. She was early, professional, and awesome with the kids. She made our event fun and memorable! I highly recommend working with her!!!!
Oh my goodness. Where do I start? Yesterday I had an event at a rooftop event space on top of a hotel. There happened to be a pool up there and the event was a nautical theme, so I knew I just had to have a mermaid! Even though the event was taking place in Richmond, Mermaid Ariana did not mind driving in from Virginia Beach to entertain my guests for a few hours. Sitting here today reviewing the photos from guests, she was clearly the best element of the party! The guests lived for her.
From an event planner's perspective, working with her was a dream. She arrived on time, communicated very professionally, and was great at interacting with guests. I would absolutely hire her again for any event. She is fantastic for children and adults!
Ariana was great dancer all the guest love her !
Ariana was very professional and accommodating and that she wanted to make sure everything was exactly the way I wanted so that everyone have a good time. She's personable and talking to all the guests and looks beautiful just like a belly dancer should!
I'm considering a Moroccan theme party in the summer, and if I do, she is definitely the one.
Ariana's performance was simply outstanding! It was the highlight of our Morroccan themed party. We would definitely book her again for a similar event.
