Hiring a Belly Dancer, What to Know and How to Book a Belly Dancer

For booking a belly dancer, all ethical and high-quality professionals structure their rates per show. A single show is typically 20-25 minutes long and multiple shows are certainly possible. I will work with you to work out a quote package to suit the needs of your event, no problem.

Please contact me at to start the conversation and receive a quote.

  For local private events within the Washington, D.C. metro area (under 40 mile radius), private event shows start at $300. Weddings and grand gala type event shows in the D.C. metro area start at $325 to allow for extra time, and planning effort to ensure a smooth, stress-free, and exceptional show on the special day.

Rates will also vary based on event type, holidays, travel distance, requirements, number of shows, additional dancers, and/or live music.

If you would like additional dancers or even live music, Graciella can make that possible! Live music adds an extra special touch to the show, for example Graciella works with Fawzi, a wonderful and talented drummer. You can see us in action in the video below.

Celebrate with Dance!
