We specialize in dances from around the world so we can create a truly unique show that meets your individual needs.
For more intimate events we can provide one of our top soloists for a 20-30 min performance. Our solo shows are all bellydance and usually 1-2 costumes. They include audience participation to get you guests up and dancing with our soloist.
We can customize this show to fit your event.
For events where you want a group show, we can provide approx a 30 min performance with 3-10 dancers (depending on the size of your event and the availability of our dancers).
These performances are usually 7-8 different songs with 4-5 different costume changes. They can be all bellydance or an international show to incorportate dances of the different cultures of your guests.
(See our list of styles for more details)
Zeffa / Grand Entrance
If you would like the dancers to bring in the Bride & Groom or Guest of Honor, we can perform either Arabic or Persian entrances with the appropriate props for each entrance.

Q: How far in advance should I book a show?
A: It is best to book your performance as far in advance as possible due to the dancers being in high demand. But we sometimes to also have spots available for last minute performances.
Q: Can I pick what dancers perform?
A: If you have a dancer in mind that you want to perform and she is available then we would be more then happy to book that dancer. But we will always send the best dancers available.
Q: Can I pick what songs they dance to?
A: We usually have a set show. If there is a special song you want included we can usually add it to the end of the show when we do audience participation. Or if it's a soloist, she can most likely do a solo to it.
If you song doesn't matter but you want a particular dance style we are more then happy to incorporate it into the show.
