Will she bring her own music?

Yes, Amala Gameela will provide her own music on a CD. The client is responsible for providing an appropriate sound system to play the CD at the event. She normally performs to a mix of classical Middle Eastern and Middle Eastern pop music but will be glad to alter her music to suit your event including live band requests.

Is tipping appropriate?

Yes, unless the client has requested otherwise Amala Gameela will accept tips sprinkled over her head in a “money shower” or in a basket or hat provided by the client.

Interested in featuring more than one belly dancer?

Amala will be happy to provide a duet, troupe, or multiple solo belly dancers to accommodate your special event.

How much does a belly dance performance cost?

The cost depends on the type of performance requested, the length of the performance, travel, and availability (holidays and last minute requests can be more expensive). A deposit is required to reserve your event date and time.

You certainly were the highlight of the party, just what I was hoping for! Thank you, one more time! -Aven Markley

May I view a sample performance?

Check Amala Gameela’s events page for local upcoming performances or her video gallery for live performance clips.

How far in advance do I need to book?

The sooner the better. Saturday nights during the holidays and the warmer months (May –September) are usually booked quickly however, Amala Gameela always does her best to negotiate to squeeze in a last minute show for you.
