::: Testimonials :::
“Excellent! Would hire again and again! Janim performed a Belly Dance at my sister’s wedding. We had almost 400 people in attendance and everyone was captivated by her. We received compliment after compliment. She was classy, graceful, and personable. If you’ve ever hired a belly dancer you know that being a good dancer goes beyond the dance moves. Janim connected to the music, the audience and made the whole wedding more fun and authentic! My whole (Lebanese) family was so pleased with her performance and presence at the wedding!” – Nawal Rajeh, Youngstown, OH
