We had Raquel come to a retirement party we were having for our uncle. Raquel arrived on time with everything she needed for a great performance. She was delightful, her dancing was very tasteful and so perfect for our crowd. You see, we had young kids there too. She engaged everyone perfectly from my 86 year old uncle to my 4 year old grandson. It was a great experience and she did a great job. Just a little note, after she said good bye to everyone and left, my grandson wanted to know "where did that awesome girl go". He had a great time.
Response from Raquel Oriental Belly Dancer:
Thanks for having me! You have a lovely family, and it was my pleasure to be invited to entertain!
Raquel was the highlight of my friend's 40th birthday party! She was very professional, talented and looked beautiful. She did the sword balancing, made sure to give special attention to the VIP's, and gave all of us who wanted to learn a little lesson. Prior to the event she was easy to communicate and make the arrangements with. I would definitely hire her again. Thank you Raquel!
I had Raquel perform for my husbands surprise 50 th birthday and she was amazing. Very entertaining and engaging with all our guests. We were very happy and would use her services again!!!
