Nicole was fantastic. Did everything we asked and went above and beyond the Call of Duty. I highly recommend this professional to anyone he needs a great dancer
They were very professional and especially nice. They took great care of all of our guest and help our party to be a big success!
Response from Nicole Raven:
Thank you so much! I hope we can work together again!
Nicole is very professional, super talented and overall a great addition to your performance and event needs! A+++
Nicole was the perfect fit for our birthday celebration! She was professional, friendly, accomodating in every way, and simply a delight. Her drinks were all spot on! I would hire her again and again...
Response from Nicole Raven:
Theresa, Thank you! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your family! Can you please let me know what I can do to get a 5-star rating from you next time?
She made our 3yr old little girls birthday party so amazing! She brought her friend with her too to help do face painting and they also made balloons. She also orchestrated the kids to run a relay race and everyone had so much fun. Thank you very much for coming and dressing us as ballerina clowns for the party all the kids had so much fun!!
Response from Nicole Raven:
Thank you, it was a pleasure working with the kids. Everyone was so great!
She was very nice and helpful with all my gets, I was very happy with her . Definitely I will contact her again
Response from Nicole Raven:
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure working with you as well!
Very courteous and knowledgeable.
I have worked with Nicole Raven for private parties, large scale events, and weekend nights at Gaspar's Grotto and she is a phenomenal performer. She brings her all to every event she works and is always a pleasure to be around. She is multi-talented and very professional. I recommend her for any gig you may need her for!
We hired Nicole and another go-go dancer for a circus themed birthday party. The girls were dressed exactly as I hoped and kept the party going. I was pleasantly surprised that they added props to their dancing such as a light up hula hoop. Great addition for any party to get the party started!
I worked with Nicole for 4 years. She is a talented, hard working, educated and well spoken beautiful woman of impeccable integrity. To paraphrase, SHE'S AWESOME!
Worked with Nicole on several occasions. She is friendly, mild mannered and very talented. For several events she has bartended and danced. Perfect in every aspect. She enriched the environment mentioned of the even and of my guest. Can't say enough great things about her. A true entertainer! A+
I was blessed enough to come across Nicole as I was searching for a belly dancing instructor for a belly dancing event I was hosting with my sorority at my university. She was very pleasant, informative and involved ; even going ouisde of the student Union to bring in more participants to our event. She made my dream and love for belly dancing a reality to share with my community. The class was well structured and broken down into steps that we could all understand as well as keeping it all fun and humorous. She's amazing.
Nicole is everything you expect and want from a professional entertainer: She shows up on time, hits her mark, and gives a good show. She's also a nice person. Not sure if that's a factor but it should be.
Super Professional. Kept our guests engaged in the party. Would highly recommend and use Nicole and GigSalad again. Thank you!
Great Entertainment !
Nicole is not only reliable but knowledgeable on pretty much every drink my guests have asked for. She is fun, cool, professional, and her rates are very reasonable!
Ive watched Nicole Raven dance for many years now and i can honestly say that every performance is wrought with a quality unique to her. Nicoles pressence on stage and her ability to draw in her audience is unmached. Her playfull energy is infectious to all who watch while her charisma swells the room with a simple movement and a flash of her smile.
Nicole Raven was a consummate professional every step of the way; from booking to breakdown of her equipment. She has a number of props available, (Sword dancing is a thing? That's awesome.) and years of training under her belt... or sarong... or whatever the belly dance outfit thingy is called. She is cheerful and good at communicating with the guests, approachable, but always classy and well-mannered. She has a slew of other performers who she can call into work with her (which was a life-saver when two of my scheduled dancers called out on a New Year's event last year). I simply can't think of another area in which she could have done a better job, which is why she is always near the top of my shortlist for performers when I plan events. I have hired her for over a dozen events in the last 2 years, and I will continue to hire her as long as she is still offering to work with me.
It's not to often that when you hire a dancer for your event, you actually end up with someone who's legitamelly versatile & talented. A dancer who not only demands your attention but has that spark of contagious humor and fun helps makes everyone have a great time.
She was professional, on time , and an absolute joy to be around.
Always smiling and brining joy to those around her. Our event was a success from young to old because of her charming and thriving personality and dance.
Loved Nicole 's use of props and the fun atmosphere she created for the festivities. I would hire her again.
She kept us on our toes, with what she would do next, great rhythm, and fun for the whole family!!!

Additional Booking Notes
When organizing an event, there are many factors which come into play - I try my best to plan ahead by getting the most information possible!
Below are some questions I will need to ask you.
- What service are you looking for? Would you like to surprise your coworker with a BELLY-GRAM for their birthday at their office? Do you need CLOWNS for a children's party?
- What type of environment will we be performing on? Stage / dance floor, indoor / outdoor, event space / private home?
- What will the music situation be? Will there be a DJ? Should I email my music in advance? Do I need to bring a speaker? Who's music will InBev dancing to? What format should I bring it on - CD or MP3?
What type of party is this? Adult / child? Birthday / wedding?
- How many guest are you expecting?
- Are there certain drinks which may be more popular?
- Will ice be available at the event space?
As other questions arise, we will maintain communication throughout the planning process.
