What to Expect
Daniela will arrive 15-20 minutes before her scheduled performance time. Please have a space for Daniela to set up - she will arrive in full costume and make-up but will need about 5-10 minutes to prepare to perform. Daniela will bring her music on either a CD or iPod, which she will discuss with you ahead of time. Once it's showtime, just press play and enjoy the show!
Daniela has been dancing since she could walk, and was classically trained in ballet, as well as tap, jazz, contemporary and hip hop. She began bellydance over 10 years ago and in addition to her performing, teaches several weekly classes, produces yearly stage shows and is the artistic director and founder of the Daniela Dance Company, a professional Middle Eastern Dance Ensemble.
When performing at your event, Daniela will work with you to customize a show that best fits your audience and your party's needs. Daniela can include props like isis wings, veils, fan veils and swords into her shows, which range from 10-40 minutes. If there is a guest of honor at your event, Daniela will make him or her part of the show, which makes for amazing memories and some great photo opportunities!
Daniela can also arrange for additional dancers to appear in your show. Shows with 2 or more dancers are always a great way to make that extra impression on your guests!
