I researched many dancers and she stood out because her videos and professionalism. She took the time to discuss what we wanted for the entertainment. She got the crowd involved and is a great entertainer. She has a wonderful personality and will be calling her for future events.
Response from Samantha Karim:
Jessica! It was a pleasure celebrating with you all! You all were so interactive! Thank you for the kind words! Happy birthday to Angel! All my best! ❤️
Samantha was a surprise for my husband's 50th Birthday and for our guest. I wanted someone who was beautiful and energetic. When I saw her profile picture on GigSalad, I knew she was the one who would make my husband's party extra special. We met in advance at my home to discuss details so everything would run smoothly and it did. Her performance was absolutely amazing. She catered to my husband while still entertaining everyone. She also was able to get our guests out on the dance floor and do a little of her moves. It was so humid and hot she stayed after her performance to take a few pictures. My husband loved his surprise and so did our guest. Samantha was so kind, energetic and entertaining. She made out party so memorable! She's a true professional and I would certainly recommend her as well as hire her again. Thank you so much Samantha!

Response from Samantha Karim:
Thank you so much, Dino! It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife You are such a fun group of people and I had a blast celebrating with you! :) All the best to you and your family!
My mother wanted a belly dancer for my father's 80th birthday party and asked me to find one. No pressure there, huh? After evaluating a number of performers thru GigSalad we selected Samantha and are so glad we did. Samantha volunteered to meet with my wife and I in advance to make sure we were comfortable with her. Samantha's personality and energy was wonderful - she asked questions to make sure she could not only provide a great dance session, but to understand my parents and the people who were going to be at the party so she could be fully prepared. Samantha's performance was exceptional and we so appreciated how she not only appropriately involved the people at the party but showed respect and kindness to my elderly mother and father. They are still talking about their "dancing" session with her! It was an afternoon they will remember for quite some time. My wife and I would highly recommend Samantha!

What to Expect
I believe in Extraordinarty Customer Service as well as an amazing performance. Your audience will be left "wowed" and you will experience a seamless process from the first point of contact to after the event is over.
When you look to hire someone you should be asking the following questions:
-Can I trust them with MY event?
-Will I be OVERLY satisfied with my experience with my entertainer?
-Would I refer this person to my friends and family members?
-Are they qualified to REPRESENT me and my reputation?
If you're not asking these questions or don't answer yes to ALL of these when booking someone, contact Samantha and she will make sure your lackluster experience doesn't happen again.
