How long is the show?
A typical show is between 15 - 30 minutes. The dancer may use finger cymbals, sword, veil, Isis wings, cane, and/or candles but not a different prop for every song. When appropriate, the show may include audience participation, for example, the guest of honor may be asked to belly dance!
Is it appropriate for children?
