Dance is a journey inside the music, through the dancer’s physical and emotional expression of that experience. A well trained and emotionally responsive dancer is able to help her audience connect with music that may be foreign or familiar, dynamic or subtle, and of any emotional quality from ecstatic to despairing. The function of a belly dancer in particular is to bring that connection between what is most human within her to what is most human in each member of her audience.


*Having a cultural event? Shining can work with you to create a custom narrated show with folk dance performances from the Middle East, North Africa and Gulf regions, as well Raqs Sharqi (Belly Dance) and American fusion dances inspired by these traditional styles!

*For weddings Shining can perform the traditional Zeffa. This is a procession of the bride and groom into the wedding reception, led by a dancer wearing a candelabra, to show the newly married couple to all their relatives and be showered with money and good blessings for their life together.

*Birthday parties, anniversaries and baby showers are a great occasion to hire Shining! Send a “belly-gram” to surprise or excite your special guest.

*Hire Shining to teach a mini-lesson for that wild bachelorette party!
