What kind of music is used?

Depending on your preference, music can range from classical Arabic, Turkish, or World Dance Music.

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 would like more than one belly dancer?

Sahra collaborates with other professional belly dancers in the area, and is happy to coordinate with them for your event.

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.
