What to Expect
Expect great energy. A trance like performance with liquid like movement and oriental dance that will blow your mind. When people watch my show they always tell me I project a cultural exotic feel and that they were amazed! Rhythmic belly dancing with or without fire depending on the event planner. I ensure that everyone is having a great time and that I deliver an outstanding performance that will WOW the crowd. I encourage crowd participation and I make a connection with the audience to engage the audience which I believe audience interaction is a good part of my show; it makes the show more fun. Can take photos with me of no charge. I demonstrate flow, great technique/technical work with fire, and dance at the same time. You can expect a show you will never forget :)

Additional Booking Notes
Lighting is only necessary if the event is at an establishment or if the environment of the event is too dark to see the performance. As far as staging without fire: I would only need a flat and spacious 6"x9" area to dance, providing a carpet would be ideal I just ask no concrete please. Sound can be provided by me, however If the event planner can provide a AMP with an AUX cord that would be much more preferable. As far as hospitality I ask for a private area I can rest and stretch before performing and while taking breaks. If the event planner wishes for fire performances; safety comes first for everyone concluding that the performance area should be fire safe whether I use fire inside/outside (usually outdoors). If INDOORS: there must be plenty of ventilation and high ceilings. I will be limited to using the following FIRE PROPS: Fans, fingers, eating fire, and 2 orbs types. If OUTDOORS:I need the flattest ground where there's no traffic;I can look and pinpoint a good spot; 6"9" area and the audience must be seating at least 6-9ft. away from the performing area.
