I know I am always saying “belly dancers are a ton of fun at parties” and it is because it is so very very true! Birthdays that feature a belly dancer are always a big hit. A birthday belly dance show usually falls into two basic categories: surprise and non-surprise. Either way they both end in a heck of a great time!
The surprise belly dance show has the added glee of shocking and surprising your guest of honor (and audience if you choose). I will work with you to hammer out all of the details to keep my performance a secret until it is time for the perfect reveal. You would be amazed and the lengths belly dancers will go through to keep the surprise. I once swerved between cars like a ninja to keep the birthday boy from seeing me. One of my favorite moments of surprise belly dance birthday shows is when the audience initially realizes what is happening. The looks of shock and excitement are priceless!
Once the grand reveal has been made the two types of shows tend to merge into the same path. Belly dance has the ability to sparkle and dazzle, bringing high end entertainment to your event. At the same time a belly dance show is also personable and interactive. These qualities are some of the reasons having a belly dance birthday show is in great demand.
When I do a birthday party I make sure to get the guest of honor up to dance. It’s a nice moment that lets everyone have a good laugh. Being silly and having fun is what birthday celebrations are all about…well that and poking good natured fun at the birthday boy or girl. It is all about balance. The guest of honor needs to shine but everyone else should get to have some fun too!
By the end of my show, after all the glitz and glamour, and the fun and exciting props, my goal is to make sure everyone had a good time. I try to make everyone feel comfortable enough to be up and dancing by the end of my shows. To me, that is what makes belly dance such an advantageous addition to a birthday party. Glam and Bang, but underneath it all, taking the time to focus on your guests and giving them the opportunity to shine as well makes a big difference.
