You can contact Leanne at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 07796 087255 with your enquiry and provide a brief overview of what your event is for, the time and date and if you have a time slot in mind or how long you would like a performance to run for, and we will see how we can bring the magic of the east alive for you!
Please note that we do charge to perform at events and that this is based upon the East Anglian Belly Dance Community recommended charging system. All genuine enquiries are considered and we will supply you with a schedule detailing what we offer, general information about our performances and the relevant charge.
WHY CHARGE? When you hire Mystic Bellydance for an event, you are not just hiring a group of dancers. Our charges are based on the level of knowledge, hours of study, investment of time and energy that has been undertaken through a number of years as individuals and as a troupe. A great deal of care and time goes into creating our own unique and varied dance routines which we rehearse throughout the year ready for our performances. We source, customize or make our performance outfits, accessories and props and are passionate about supporting the dance community and portraying our chosen dance form with the respect it deserves. For performances we will have carefully selected our dance routines to make the best of our time at your event, have taken care to create a specific playlist on CD and MP3 to perform to, carefully applied our make-up, styled our hair, ensured our costumes are ready and looking their best before even arriving at your event in good time, ready to perform. The funds we raise from our performances help us to fund rehearsal space and special costuming for our charity work and annual show and so please bear in mind that you are not just paying for a person to turn up in a costume and wobble their belly.... you are paying for our individual and collective artistry.
