Things to Consider


 

Dance Area
Provide the dancer a clean and well-defined area in which to perform, preferably at least 6 by 4 feet for the soloist.

 

Dressing Area
A private and secure dressing area is required to change in and out of costumes and store belongings. 

Sound System
A quality stereo system with an auxiliary cord or Bluetooth connection will enhance the music and performance significantly. Logistically, it is best if the stereo and speakers are in the same room as the performance. In circumstances where a Deejay is provided they dancer will communicate directly with them and provide music in the format that they request.   

Audience Appreciation
Clapping with the music, watching attentively and encouraging your guests to do the same will make the evening more memorable. If guests wish to tip the dancer they may do so by handing her the money at the end of her performance or in the case of a belly dance performance they may shower her with money and the money should be collected on the dancer's behalf and handed to her after her set is complete. Please do not interrupt the dancer's performance by trying to put money in her costume. 

Stay on Schedule
Be considerate of the dancers’ time, as they may have another engagement on the same night. The show should begin within 15 minutes of the originally scheduled time. 

Enjoy the Show
Once the show begins, sit back, relax and enjoy! If it is appropriate and the dancer chooses to do so, she will select someone to dance with her. Please do not urge anyone to dance with her if they have not been invited. If the performance is in honor of a special person, point out the special guest to the dancer before the performance begins.
