Children often love bellydance!

  • BellyGram (approx 15 minutes) – This short-but-sweet option is perfect for surprise parties and is essentially a condensed version of the Classic Show.
  • Classic Show (approx 25 minutes) – A solo performance that packs a punch! Razia will seamlessly transition between various musical moods and tempos, and may include props such as veil, finger cymbals, Wings of Isis, fan veils, cane, or balancing sword. She can also include getting the guest of honor up to dance or audience participation!
  • Two Shows (at least 1 hour) – For longer events or themed parties where just one performance isn’t enough! Razia will perform twice with a short break and a costume change in between shows.
  • Lesson and a Show (1 hour) – This is a great option for bridal showers, Ladies Nights, or girl’s birthday parties. Razia will teach a fun and informative ”Belly Dance Taster” class and follow it up with a short performance in full costume. Given enough notice, Razia can also provide hip scarves or dance veils for the participants to keep for a small extra fee.
  • Other Options? –  Many details can be customized so don’t hesitate to ask! For example, while Razia is primarily a solo dancer she can arrange for duet, trio, or group performances as well as live music (additional fees will apply).
