Where do you perform?
I usually perform at restaurants, lounges, clubs and private events such as weddings, birthdays, etc. I also perform at expos, festivals, university and corporate events.
I understand you perform and teach at Bachelorette parties, do you perform at Bachelor parties too?
No. My art is not of the adult only entertainment variety. I perform an art form rooted in the Middle East and North Africa. To respect the people, their cultures and art as a collective, I do not perform for all male audiences.
Are your shows appropriate for children?
Absolutely! I love performing for kids and encourage their participation!
How long is your performance?
Length of show varies but most common is 30 minutes, followed by 15 min shows. However, my show can be customized by clients to fit their time restrictions.
