Book a bellydancing show – Caitlyn is available anywhere in the UK or abroad
Caitlyn dances solo or with a dancer partner or group, and accompanies her music with sagat (finger cymbals). She can also use props such as scimitar, veil, and Isis wings.
Caitlyn is available for shows absolutely anywhere in the UK and abroad. Please enquire for rates.
Hire Drummers and Musicians
Caitlyn can bring a drummer or trio to accompany her – or a full Arabic or Turkish band! Whether you are looking for a zaffa (wedding procession), entertainment during a meal, or a show to get the party started, Caitlyn can organise the perfect musicians for your event.
One dancer not enough? You can arrange a performance with additional professional bellydancers, a fire dancer or a snake charmer. Visit Caitlyn’s agency site www.HaflaEntertainment.com for details. Her company also offers services such as Arabic calligraphers to write guests’ names, stiltwalkers, and LED glow performers.
Caitlyn herself can perform additional acts
Caitlyn is also a fire eater, snakecharmer, fire dancer, tanoura (whirling dervish) performer, glass walker and burlesque artist. For an unusual twist, some of these acts can be combined with bellydancing in one show.
Caitlyn can invite audience members to learn a few dance moves. She can even provide coin belts to lend to the guests or teach a mini-workshop as part of the show.
Personalised Group dance Lessons
Caitlyn is available to teach lessons at parties such as hen nights, henna parties, birthdays, baby showers. The price is the same as for a performance, and you may combine a lesson with a dance show. Caitlyn teaches these classes in costume and brings coin belts to lend to the guests. These lessons can be scheduled anywhere in the UK.
Wide selection of costumes
Caitlyn has a large selection of high-end professional bellydance costumes, many of them custom made for her. Her collection includes costumes with sleeves and higher necklines, as well as costumes with a circus theme.
If you would like a particular look, she will be happy to accommodate your request.
Dancing and music tailored to your event
Very little space is required for the dance, unless you would like a veil dance or Isis wings (the prop shown on the homepage). Caitlyn is happy to dance outside, at your home, at a club, at a fashion show, for a video or photo shoot, or wherever else you like, and can provide a sound system suitable for small parties.
Watching a Performance
Unlike most Western dance performances, bellydance performances do not usually take place in a hushed room of motionless spectators. If a dancer is performing at a party or restaurant, don’t save your applause until the end – you can show your appreciation for particularly good moves during the dance.
You might also hear members of the audience shouting compliments or encouragement to the dancer during the show (e.g., “Aiwa!” – “Yes!” in Egyptian Arabic). Audience participation is often part of the show!
