Frequently Asked Questions

Looking to hire Kelvia Belly Dancer CT for your next wedding or special occasion ? Here are some frequently asked questions about hiring a belly dancer.

Q. How long should the belly dance performance be?

A. Depending on what belly dance package you request (Classic Show), a typical show is 20-30 minutes. Kelvia recommends the “Classic Belly Dance Show” for most occasions. 20 minutes gives Kelvia just enough time to provide a full length dynamic show including all the traditional elements such as a dramatic entrance, prop dance demonstration, drum solo, and audience participation. This is the standard length belly dance show for Middle Eastern and Turkish establishments that feature belly dance weekly in CT. It’s always a good idea to leave your guests wanting more. A very small venue or packed dance area may work better with the Mini Belly Dance Show or if you just want something quick and fast (for example, if Kelvia is only one of a series of entertainment providers at your event.)

Q. Are belly dance shows appropriate for children / family friendly?

A. Yes! Kelvia loves dancing for children and they are often her biggest fans. They love to join in at the end for audience participation and love the sparkly costumes! Belly dance, better known as Raqs Sharqi is a cultural family-friendly art form and appropriate for all ages.

Q. What kind of belly dancing music do you use?

A. Kelvia has a wide repertoire of Arab and Turkish music ranging from the traditional classics such as Um Kulthoum to the most current pop songs great for audience participation. Let her know where the people in the audience will be from and what type of music you would like- she is happy to work with you to create just what you’re looking for!

Q. Is it appropriate to tip?

A. Of course! Tipping is always a culturally appropriate and welcome gesture to show your enjoyment of Kelvia’s show in addition to clapping and joining in yourself for audience participation. If you’re not from the Arab world or Turkey just know that a traditional and fun way of tipping a belly dancer is a ‘money shower’ – lightly tossing a bunch of bills above the dancers head while she performs. Tips may also be included with the final payment form or politely handed to Kelvia during her belly dance performance. Please note, Kelvia does not accept costume tipping. Tipping in the dancer’s bra is never appropriate.

Q. When should I book a belly dancer?

A. It is always better to book the show sooner rather than later. Keep in mind Friday and Saturday nights and holidays are the busiest times as well as wedding season in CT for hiring a belly dancer.

Q. Do you do out of state/international belly dance performances?

A. Yes! Kelvia is located in the New Haven County of CT, but is available for belly dancing shows nationally and internationally. Travel fees will apply and booking should be made well in advance!

Q. How do I contact Kelvia to hire her for a belly dance show/performance?

A. Give her a call or email! 203-313-8282 or
