  • What is included in the performance?
  • The Cabaret Style performances include an entrance acknowledging the guests, drum solo, optional props (swords, candles, canes and veils) and energetic inspiring music to get the guests up to dance.

  • Do the guests have to dance at the occasion?
  • It is always more fun to dance with the guests. We always ask and encourage dancing. If the guests do not want to dance then we do not insist or put them on the spot unless we can see that they want to and are being shy.

  • What do the dancers wear to a performance?

  • What about Surprise Parties?
  • It is always more exciting for the dancer to be a surprise to the guests, especially the guest of honor. This keeps the dancer more mysterious. A client usually meets the dancer outside the event and takes the music to start up when it is time for the dancer to perform.
