Performance FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How long is the show?
A typical show is between 20 – 30 minutes. The belly dancer may use finger cymbals, veils, sword, or cane. When appropriate, the show may include audience participation, for example, the guest of honor may be asked to belly dance!
Is it appropriate for children?
Yes, the belly dance show is family friendly. Children often love to dance, too!
Will she bring music?
The belly dancer provides a music CD and the venue should provide the sound system (louder is better). Usually the dancer will stay out of sight until the CD has begun playing.
What kind of music is used?
Depending on your preference, music can range from classical Arabic to modern pop. Janim’s music collection also includes Egyptian hits and Turkish favorites.
Is tipping appropriate?
Yes. Unless the host has requested otherwise, the dancer will gladly accept tips. Tips may be tucked into the dancer’s belt, shoulder strap, glove, or thrown above her head as a “money shower” or added to the payment.
What if I need more than one belly dancer?
Hire a group of beautiful, talented and professional belly dancers! Janim collaborates with other professional artists to provide performances for large venues.
How far in advance should I make the booking?
It totally depends. It is always better to book the show sooner than later. If you are flexible about the time that the show begins, last minute shows can often be worked in.
What kind of payment accepted?
The payment is due immediately after the show. You can pay with cash or personal check. Paypal payments can be arranged if you pay in advance.
