I have hired Hannah to perform on multiple occasions ranging from private parties to Google +'s Holiday Party.
Hannah is an incredible performer on all levels. Her movement is breathtaking, her costumes stunning, her dancing effortless. Her versatility in style is truly amazing - from fast paced rhythms and twirls to mesmerizing belly dancing on wine glasses. An astounding dance entirely with a tea tray on her head wows audiences. Portions of her show feel like a Cirque de Soleil performance.
Perhaps even more than her beautiful and energetic movements, though, is the authentic sense of joy she infuses throughout her audience. Hannah has a unique combination of ethereal presence and authentic warmth that makes everyone not only admire her masterful skill and feel inspired, but also feel very comfortable and happy in their own skin. In short, her spirit captures us and transports us to another world where we all want to and can dance with her. Her performance brings a party to life.
As an entertainment professional, Hannah is a delight to work with. She is extremely professional, dependable, and very clear in all her pre event communications. When I have many things to coordinate for a party, it is so reassuring to know I can call her and just have the entire entertainment portion taken care of.
She is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of all the various dance styles in the Middle East. If you have the opportunity, ask her about some about the history behind her dances and you will be fascinated by what you learn.
We will continue to hire Hannah at every opportunity. She is one of the best performers of any dance form I have seen in the Bay Area. I strongly recommend her for any event.
planned my 40th birthday party for 5 months. As you can imagine, I wanted every piece of it to be perfect. I was very detailed with my vision and needed someone to fit into what I created. I searched for different dancers, had multiple email exchanges and I had a gut feeling that Hannah was going to be the most perfect choice. She answered all my emails promptly and described in great detail her answers. She was kind and not pushy which made me like her even more.
She arrived to my party on time. None of my guests knew she was coming so she planned her entrance with the most fabulous music and this gorgeous stage presence. Her smile throughout her entire performance was so full of happiness and encouraged the rest of us to join in while watching her. We were literally dancing in our chairs. After 4 songs she then encouraged the ladies to dance with her first. All her props were so fun! All of us girls danced and had the best time. Next she brought all the boys up... and she got them to dance! Do you know how hard that is to do?
There was so much laughter and happiness in the room. Hannah was so much fun and brought so much life to the party. Her love of dance is clearly noticeable. She is beautiful to watch and made bellydancing look easy (when I know it is not). A true artist!
I would hire her again and my guests all agreed she was perfect.
Thank you, Hannah!
