I am a local performer in Rock Hill, SC and Charlotte, NC. I am willing to travel to perform for your event. I perform with fire, on aerial silks, trapeze, and other forms of dance, including Belly dance. I have an edgy/alternative look and a fun, upbeat personality. I love doing side show acts as well.
Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 15 - 20 minutes
Insurance: $1,000,000 - Specialty Insurance
What to Expect
I am very punctual, arriving at least 30 minutes before my set. I am clear on needs as well. I can do multiple acts in the same event, and am accommodating to hosts needs. I have experience in both large festivals as well as small parties. My general belly dance or fire set is 20 minutes long, while a typical aerial set will be 4-6 minutes. I also can do atmospheric performance.
A set can include any of the following acts: belly dance (style of your choice), aerial acts(apparatus of your choice), or fire (this includes several props).
I've been dancing since I could walk. I love being on stage and I bring a presence that captivates audiences. I belly dance with props (veil, sword, basket, skirt, flutter fans, fan veils, and cane) as well as fire dance with props (fans, torches, batons, orb, fingers, palm flames, eating) and fire breathing(experience of 12 years). My dance experience includes- ballet, tap, jazz, modern, contemporary,hip hop, American Tribal Style belly dance, Modern Egyptian belly dance, American Cabaret belly dance, some Turkish belly dance,"Renaissance festival style" belly dance, as well as tribal fusion belly dance. On the aerial aspect of things, I am highly trained on the aerial silks and static/dance trapeze, and teach classes daily. I am also trained on the lyra (aerial hoop). I have a little acrobatic and hand balance work under my belt, but am not as trained as I am with aerial or dancing.
Additional Booking Notes
Hosts are to provide music equipment/speakers, but I will bring music in whichever form we have agreed upon (cd, usb drive, ipod/mp3 player.
I also would love to have a space for warming up that is separate from the clients. A dressing room is great, but any separate space is fine.
If booking for aerial performance, must have a space which would satisfy a professional rigger/expert. Beam must support appropriate amount of weight and force. This is a safety precaution.
If hired for a fire gig, I will be adding a $50 fee to bring a fire safety. It is very important to have a professionally trained safety in the event that anything happens.
I also have specialty insurance!
