What to Expect
Romana and Celestina can be booked as a solo or duet. Expect a phone call regarding gig details, including whether we are a surprise for your function, as well as what props will be appropriate for the dancing area. If the function is a birthday party, we like to have a description or tell about who the birthday person is (bright red shirt.) We arrive either in costume or partly in costume and usually stay out of sight until our performance. Children always welcome at our performances, and they usually like to dance with us!

Regarding our props, we will need to know if there are lighting fixtures or uneven surfaces we will need to negotiate with our props, such as our swords or veils.
If you have family members who are sensitive to sound, and our finger cymbals may bother them, please let us know and we will omit them from the act.
No animals allowed in dancing area (for safety reasons for our furry friends!) during performance.
