Function Dancing5smlCorporate Function or Wedding
You can choose to have a belly dance performance of about 15 mins to round up speeches or call people to the dance floor, or have two sets of dance about 10-15 mins each with costume changes and props such as zills (finger cymbols) cane (or stick), veil, isis wings or bollywood style. These two performances make the perfect “bookends” to speeches. The first one gets people settled down and paying attention and the second one is a great segue to getting the dance floor filled!

Birthday Party, Engagment party, Family reunion, Work dinner etc.
For this type of function, Charni recommends a full costume performance of around 15 –20 mins with an optional “come up and try it yourself” afterwards. The whole crowd will be clapping, cheering, gasping in awe and laughing at cheeky parts.
