Beverly, thank you for stopping by to leave me some love! I had such a wonderful time with your daughter and all her friends. They were such an appreciative crowd! Hope to see you again in the very near future. XOXOXO! Carrara
She was ABSOLUTELY wonderful to work with! From before the ceremony taking, she took it upon herself to confirm everything was set with the venue & the DJ & having a great discussion with us in regards to what we were looking for. Then the ceremony & her entertainment for our guests....she was outstanding. Included the young children to the elders & made everyone feel at ease & maintained a family atmosphere. I would recommend her highly & hope to use her again & future family functions.
Response from Carrara Nour:

punctuality, very friendly with the guests, a very nice dance 1000% recommended!!!
Carrara Nour and her colleague danced at our Big Fat Gay Greek & Indian wedding. She came up with a fun mix of "Grindian" blended music that entertained ALL of our family and friends. Leading up to our big day she was so prompt with answering any questions, always very professional, friendly, and overall she just seemed genuinely excited to be part of our day. I would confidently recommend Carrara Nour and her team!
Response from Carrara Nour:
James, thank you for stopping by to leave me some love! And from the bottom of my heart, thank you for trusting me and Aisha with your Big Fat Gay Grindian wedding. Wish I could go back to that magical night! XOXOXO
Carrara Nour is extremely professional, fun, well spoken, and of course a wonderful dancer. My event was a work party to promote the National Geographic book, Tales from the Arabian Nights. Carrara contacted me several times to make sure she understood exactly what I wanted and made great suggestions about the performance. She graciously agreed to speak to my guests about the origins of the dance. I highly recommend making this a part of your event.
She showed up exactly on time and did everything we asked and more. She charmed our entire audience. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
Carrara brought so much fun and excitement to the wedding! It was the perfect transition between dinner and dancing :) Carrara works with your special requests, she put in some Latin music mixes to go with our Puerto Rican & Panamanian background :) I would recommend her for any special event or wedding!
Carrara was on time and a real professional, she worked the crowd and was willing to dance with audience, Such a good time!
Carrara Nour is both beautiful and talented. She provided a lovely performance and stage presentation for a nightlife formal ball. Our guests were pleased and impressed with her show as was I.
Such quality and elegance in this woman's dedication to tge events she's working.
If you're looking for a belly dancers for any occasion Carrara Nour is that dancer!!!! You won't be disappointed.
I want people to know that I wanted to throw the perfect celebration for my son's 21st because he makes his Dad and I and his sisters so proud and blessed to be his Family
My best friend turned 40 recently and we thought it would be fun to do something different for him. Carrara put on a spectacular and fun show, and really had the crowd going. She is extremely talented in dance and moreover, extremely accommodating to my specific requests. I would highly recommend her for any event and will be using her again.
I have seen this performance a few times now and I have to say it was incredible. A nice touch to add to an event that you want to put over the top. She is a great performer and your guests will have a blast!
My production company has worked with other talents throughout the state and most have become horror stories... amateurs, professionals who give me a corrupted song last minute because they can't ever answer a phone, or people who are really good and have ZERO creativity.
Carrara Nour is MILES ahead of her competition.
1) Easy to work with
3) Able to create a performance on the fly (not her preferred choice, but she did it)
4) Many costumes to choose from
5) Interactive and creative
You can't go wrong here. She's beyond passionate. You'll be working with someone who literally breathes life into her craft.
My husband and I booked Carrara to perform at our recent wedding and all I have to say is that she totally completed our special day!
We're both Arab-American and while we only wanted a short 15-minute performance, it was still really important to us that we picked a great belly dancer. Carrara was perfect! She was to happy to discuss music and accommodate my family's song requests, and she even coordinated her costume with my wedding decor!
Our guests won't stop talking about how much fun they had at our wedding, and they still rave about Carrara's show. Her dancing was so beautiful and fun, and left everyone smiling all night. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her.
5 stars, all the way! Carrara made my sister's bachelorette party soooooo unique and fun!
My friends and I have been to a few too many bachelorette parties this year and we wanted to do something a little nicer for my sister than going clubbing downtown. (We didn't want to go the male stripper route either!) One of my friends suggested a belly dance class for all the girls and recommended Carrara who had danced at her friend's bridal shower a couple years ago.
I instantly clicked with Carrara and loved how she really, genuinely cared about making our party perfect! She even recommended adding a short 15-minute performance to our belly dance class, and I'm so glad we splurged on that option! Everyone loved her sword dance and her intricate costume, and the show really set the mood for our belly dance class. The class was so much fun thanks to Carrara's fabulous energy and humor. We had lots of laughs trying to copy her moves, which she made appear so effortless during the show! She was very generous and professional and even stayed a few minutes extra for group photos.
Carrara's belly dance show and lesson were a really classy addition to my sister's bachelorette party. Our only regret is that we didn't meet Carrara soon enough to hire her for my sister's wedding! But we would highly recommend her to anyone who wants fun, classy entertainment for their bachelorette party, wedding, birthday or any event! XOXO - Marcela
Carrara did such a wonderful job at my mothers surprise party! she has such a lovely way about her, and really stunned the crowd!
fantastic to work with, and such a fun personality!
Ms. Nour is an absolute delight! She danced at my daughter's Moroccan-Themed Birthday Party, and absolutely made our event a success. Her diverse performance was amazing! A brilliant, gracious, beautiful, and prompt professional; she brings a higher standard to Belly Dance while maintaining the beautiful culture, versatility in venue, and an incredibly approachable persona. Everyone (even my very shy daughter) was comfortable joining in the fun! Carrara Nour is the finest performer I have ever had the pleasure of working with, professionally or personally! You will be incredibly thrilled you chose her!
I knew I would love Carrara before I even met her. She is a professional people person and is genuinely passionate about what she does. This beautiful young lady came to our event extremely well prepared and with a contagious positive attitude. She can read the crowd and adjust her performance accordingly, leaving our guests beaming. I can't wait for another opportunity to work with her!
After interviewing a few dancers, we were sold on Ms. Nour within the first 10 minutes of our conversation with her. It was our daughters wedding and she wanted a belly dancer so as any parent would, we wanted to make her day special. The wedding was small and classy and we wanted the entertainment be a reflection our our plans and memorable. Style and Elegance is what she brought and boy can she dance!!. We have seen many dancers before in the past but she was just magical. From the first conversation to the wedding she always kept us up to date and was one of the best crowd pleasers I have ever seen. It really was a pleasure to have her on our special night and creating memories. Her performance will not be forgotten. Worth every penny!
I certainly got it right when I booked this energetic, and impressively talented, young lady to perform at our Labor Day BBQ/ pool party. I had originally given our party a Hawaiian theme but also wanted to introduce a crossover to traditional dance from other parts of the world. After researching Carrara's bio and experience, I chose her and she did not disappoint!
After calling, I was contacted within minutes by an obviously experienced professional Carrara Nour, and found myself immediately impressed by her upbeat friendly personality and determination to meet my needs and answer my questions. I hung up the phone satisfied that I was dealing with a dependable business professional, skilled in her craft, easy to get along with, and flexible to my schedule.
I had to call and reschedule her performance time due to other guests arriving late. Carrara was extremely eager to please and agreed to the schedule change no problem, that was painless.
Upon arrival I met with a confident 'open faced' smiling young professional with a strong hand shake. I went over the particulars of how I wanted her to be presented after setting the stage, again she was eager to work with my preferences and appeared to genuinely be enjoying what she does and excited to entertain the guests, especially the young girls little 'mini-lessons' I requested.
Carrara made her entrance and immediately entranced our guests with an unexpected level of talent. I've been to Greek restaurants and events, Middle East restaurants, belly dancing is a huge tradition especially in those regions, but I've never seen anyone dance with such spellbinding fluid coordination and energy. The beautiful music used her to express itself, as if the music became a person to present itself to you. The guest were simply captivated. It's clear Carrara very much enjoys what she does and makes sure you know it with her determination to leave you with a positive business experience from phone call, to dazzling your guests with enchanted mesmerizing dance, to leaving you glad you chose her to be a permanent part of your memorial event. Thanks Carrara!
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for his 50th Birthday, we had a small party at home and I hired Carrara to perform. What a delight! From the first time I contacted her, she was prompt to response and very very nice. Very professional, and classy. Wonderful show, we all enjoyed it very much! I highly recommend her and would hire her again! Even after party she sent a Thank you email which I thought was very nice. Thank you for a wonderful show! :)
What an incredible evening. This incredible lady had talent, ,physical stamina and got everyone going. She even had two peopole in the group belly dancing, and had the birthday boy up and dancing with everyone cheering. It was an incredible evening thanks to Carrara. We will have her dance again, she has too much tallent to ignore!
Carrara was very professional, punctual and a great performer. She kept in constant contact with me before the event. We were pleased with her and would hire her again.
I had the fortunate pleasure of being able to see Carrara Nour dance at a wedding recently. I have seen Belly Dancing and as nice as it was there was something very fluid and beautiful about the way she not only danced but entertained the crowd. She brought a smile to all our faces and made the night very memorable and unique. My friends and I in attendance frequently talk about her wonderful show. Definitely would hire for one of my future events.
