FAQS about booking our troupe
We have an hour + of show material. “Sets” of 15-20 minutes recommended.
We are also happy to start audience participation to either Arab or American music.We can place a rectangular Oriental rug to delineate the performance space.
We have 3 rugs . A 9 X 12 for trios, 10 X 13 is ideal for 4 or 5 and sometimes 6 (seen in pic ) And a lavish 12 X 18 for big spaces . We often can dance rugless .
A level smooth surface is required. No shows on gravel or dirt. Dry Grass OK if we must. We arrive in costume with festive Caftan Cover-ups.
We travel with a high quality powerful portable sound system.
We will need a designated corner for props and personal belongings.
Currently there is no charge, but we ask to be able to display a tip jar.

THERE’S NO WAY TO ACCURATELY ASSESS YOUR LEVEL BY PHONE .
PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE of any sort is strongly recommended. If you have been seriously sedentary for years or have absolutely Zero rhythm, this is NOT the best place to start. This is targeted for those who consider that they move fairly well already. If you are new to dancing and want to just try it and see , call Me and we can discuss this. Another class may establish for newest absolute beginners level. CLASSES CONDUCTED ON A SPRUNG AND FLOATING DANCE FLOOR
WHAT TO WEAR: Belly exposure is not necessary, but you do need form fitting clothing on your torso. I’ll need to determine if your knees are bent or straight, Hence -no long skirts , please. Yoga pants , sweatpants, or Dance pants are good. Wearing A bright hip scarf is good too , Especially one with fringe to accentuate your Pelvic movement. Please Have your hair out of your face. Wearing A secure ,sturdy, uplift bra is highly recommended .
SHOES ? YES ! you need to be able to swivel. A Dance slipper with a smooth leather sole is ideal. ( I have some loaners ) Socks are the next best thing. Ballet slippers are good, also. I will show you the best shoes on Day 1 of class. Bare feet are sometimes too sticky to swivel well, but you can try it.
FEES: $95 on the first day of class for 8 90 minute classes.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS A CLASS ? at least 2 Free make-up classes will occur so you don’t waste your money.
