Is it appropriate for children?
Yes, the belly dance show is family friendly. Children are very welcome to join!

Will belly dancer 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. Katia's music collection also includes contemporary Arabic, Turkish, Indian, 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, shoulder strap, glove, or thrown above her head as a "money shower", or added to the payment.

How far in advance should I make the booking?
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.
