How long is the show?
A typical show is between 25 - 40 minutes. The dancer may use finger cymbals, swords, veils, and candles. 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 an Arabic 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. Live Persian or Arabic musicians can be arranged upon request.

What kind of music is used?
Depending on your preference, music can range from classical Arabic to modern pop. Michelle's music collection also includes Bollywood hits and contemporary Turkish and Persian 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, or thrown above her head as a "money shower".

What if I need more than one belly dancer?
Ask about booking an award-winning group of beautiful, talented and professional belly dancers. Michelle collaborates with other professional troupes and artists to provide big-stage, extravaganza 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. However, Saturday nights during the holidays and during wedding season (May - September) tend to book out completely.

What about out of town and international shows?
Michelle lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Shows outside of Northern California will need to be booked far in advance.

Can I get a sample DVD?
Performance DVD's are available for agents and overseas venues considering entering into a performance contract. There are also several video clips posted on the videos page.
