Hiring a Belly Dancer or
Troupe for Your Next Event

Always watch a
performance or ask for a
video.
 You don't know who
you're hiring until you see
them dance.  Make sure the
dancers in the video are the
dancers currently in the
troupe.

What style of belly dance
do you perform?
 If you
don't familiarize yourself with
the styles, you may end up
with a style much different
than what you're expecting.

How long has the current
group been dancing
together?
 In general, a
group that has danced
together for quite a while will
appear more professional.  
That's not always true, so
that's where the video is so
valuable.

How many performances
have you done?  
Dancers
that have performed
numerous times will tend to
know how to deal with their
nerves and perform at their
best regardless of butterflies
in their stomach.
