Maria is the ultimate performer; beautiful and talented! She is appropriately flirtatious and has an infectious sense of humor, teasing tastefully with all of the guests, young and old alike. We can't wait to have her back again at our venue to captivate our guests!
Entertaining and Maria is nice and accommodating
I hired Maria for a 50th birthday party. She was timely, and very professional. She managed to keep the crowd (which included kids and adults) all engaged and very entertained. The party was a blast!!!
I am one of those that always read reviews but never writes them. I must say that Maria put on a wonderful show wasn't sure what to expect and if the groups of ladies would enjoy -It was a complete Show Stopper! Thank you so very much for helping me celebrate my sister Bridal Shower. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for some fun entertainment.
This was the first time I booked someone through gig salad and was a bit skeptical of doing so through the internet.However I was in for a great surprise as Maria was amazing,very graceful and energetic..She came on time and gave a very good performance.She kept the guest engaged and made them participate even the shy ones.I will definitely recommend her.Thanks to Maria, she made a day to remember!
I hired Maria for my birthday. She is very professional, meaning very responsive in communication (email and phone), flexible, and on time for the performance. She was also so great in getting my guests engaged and make sure everybody has a good time during her dance.
I definitely hire her again and recommend her to any of my friends who want to add some spice to their parties!
Marie is that special performer that will create a great time. She did two or three solo dances and then had audience participation. She had people up there who didn't expect to be part of the show. Fun for all!
Maria is a great entertainer . She makes all guest participate and it makes the party very lively.
I will give her 5 Star all the way
I had the pleasure of contacting Maria for a belly dance performance at my sister's Egyptian wedding! I don't know where to start but she wowed all our guests she was very fun and energetic! She added a lot of fun to the wedding! She engaged most of the guests.
So glad i had Maria for the wedding!
Being an Egyptian, i am a little picky when it comes to belly dancers but Maria...is one of the best belly dancers i have seen in my life! She is beautiful, fun, family friendly and sweet! All the guests loved her and took tons of pictures with her!
I would recommend her to anyone looking for high quality belly dance performance and i will definitely contact her again for my future events!
I hired Maria to dance at my husband's 40th birthday party this last weekend. She was a definite crowd-pleaser as many people asked where I found her. What stood out for me is that not only can she dance so beautifully, but she is very playful in a tasteful way that made everyone at the party join in the fun. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a good entertainer.
