What to Expect
Generally, the best length for a belly dance performance is 15-20 minutes.The rate usually will not change for an extra few minutes or so, but please be advised over 20 minutes tends to be overkill for your guests. A typical performance includes a solo dance, usually an elegant veil entrance piece, followed by an upbeat drum solo piece- in addition to that, if requested I can invite the guest(s) of honor and/or get the audience engaged in more interactive fun and up to dance with me (always in a tasteful, fun manner) to an upbeat song. Depending on your requests, we can add the interactive fun, or I can just perform solo dances, or combine the two, its really up to you. I can bring a bunch of coin belts to hand out for the audience to use for the interactive portion as well.
For showers/stagettes/bachelorette parties: A full lesson/class can be arranged for longer than 20 min if desired. prices negotiable. This can be done at a hall, or at a residence. I will provide coin belts for the woman to wear during the lesson as well.
Requirements for a performance are a powerful CD system or DJ and sufficient dancing space that is safe for bare feet. Payment is made in advance of the performance, day of, cash only. I understand things do not always run exactly on schedule, a grace period of 15 min is ok, but I will have to charge extra if my performance is pushed back longer than 15 min- amount will vary depending on location and length of wait time.
