Guidelines for hiring a belly dancer:

 Price should not be your first concern. Different dancers charge different rates according to their professional abilities and experience.

Think instead of the image you wish to create for your special event. Are you looking for professionalism and elegance? Don't settle for the cut-rate quote... remember, you get what you pay for!

Our lovely and tastefully costumed dancers will leave your guests mesmerized and enchanted with their beautiful dances. Remember that your participation and enthusiasm will also add extra zest to our show!

N.B.  Shorter performance time. We have a minimum fee for performing. 1 minute to 20 minutes costs the same because the expense of making ourselves look fabulous is exactly the same regardless. Hair, nails, make up and petrol etc costs the same regardless of how long we perform for.
