Selena was courteous, kind, and a consummate professional. She showed up on time even though she had traveled to get to El Paso. At first my friends were skeptical because they had never really experienced this at a party, but after she started doing her thing, and they were amazed and thoroughly entertained. I would recommend her to anybody who needs a highly skilled belly dancer for entertainment at their next event.
Thank you for the entertainment Selena.
