Infinity Bellydance on the Dr.Oz Show

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Infinity Bellydancers Mariyah, Sira and Layla Isis found ourselves on the Dr.Oz show a couple of weeks ago, being asked to dance a bit and discuss the benefits of ….Argan oil.
Since this was a health and beauty segment the producers wanted three lovely ladies to discuss the oil’s various benefits and I suppose they thought it would be extra fun and colorful if those lovely ladies happened to be bellydancers!
…..Bellydancers? Argan Oil? Why not? So Sawft!
Fortunately, the three of us really do use argan oil, so we had something to say! We had a great time on the show! Here are few pics from the day.

Hiring a Belly Dancer for your Wedding? – Mariyah- Sublime Bellydance NYC

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Traditionally a part of the festivities at many Middle Eastern and Mediterranean weddings, Belly dance is quickly becoming a popular wedding entertainment idea for everyone, and for good reason! Many brides looking for unique wedding reception ideas are finding Belly dance to be a great option! Glamourous, interactive and joyous, A good bellydancer or bellydance group will present a performance with elegance, artistry, fun and the same attention to detail that you have put into planning the other beautiful elements of your reception.

Here are few ideas for incorporating Belly dance entertainment into your wedding reception!

Mariyah Belly Dancer NYC , NJ, CTReception entertainment
This is by far the most popular option for most wedding performances. A show by a solo dancer or a bellydance group at the end of dinner is a great way to provide entertainment as well as energy and motivation to get your guests up for the dancing and party portion of the evening. A show would typically begin with a couple of performance pieces, choreographed in the case of a group, followed by the dancer or dancers bringing guests onto the floor to dance with special attention paid to the bride and groom. Of course, every party is different but the floor is often filled by the end of the show! Another option for timing is to have the show at the before dinner, right after the bridal entrance. Both can work very well depending on the schedule of your reception. Shows such as these usually range in length from 10 minutes to 30 minutes depending on how much audience participation you want and expect your guests to be up for. A show on the shortest end would probably only have time for a brief dance with the bride and groom while a longer show would work best for a reception with large number of guests who you expect to enthusiastically crowd the floor!

Infinity Bellydance Gotham Hall WeddingBridal Entrance
Bellydance can be unique and beautiful option for a bridal entrance! Here the focus is very much on setting the stage for the entrance of bridal party and not so focused on the dancers’ show. After a quick but spectacular entrance in a swirl of veils or wings or flickering candles, the dancers will create a frame for the entrance of the bridal party. Often they will then lead the bride and groom across the hall to their table or onto the floor for the first dance. You could also opt for the traditional Zeffa ( Arabic wedding procession with musicians and dancers) or your own unique take on it. Abridal entrance with belly dancers can be customized to each event and couple. The entrance can often be paired with a formal performance either immediately following or later in the evening.

 

 

 

 

 

Cocktail hour
Another way to bring bellydance to your wedding is to offer entertainment during the cocktail hour. Since guests are just gathering during this time, cocktail hour performances are also often less of a formal show and more a way to create atmosphere and greet guests as they arrive to the event.

Dance party
Occasionally brides ask that the dancer or dancers arrive a bit later after dinner and cake, once the dance party is in full swing, In this case also, the dancers would provide less of formal show and the focus would be on bringing and extra splash of color, energy and excitement to the dance floor

 

 

Whatever you decide, remember that hiring the right entertainment is important and will create lasting memories of the reception for your guests. Be sure to research potential performers, watch Video,  read Reviews and know that a budget performer is not a better choice!

A Renaissance Wedding

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

I was delighted when I received a request this summer for a specialty themed performance for a Renaissance themed wedding at the beautiful Pantagis Renaissance in Scotch Plains, NJ. Here is a clip I made of a few highlights. Many thanks the THEPROS for the great footage.

The mother of the bride, who hired me as a surprise for the couple was very particular about the theme in both music and costuming. I had a great time working all the details with her and bringing her vision to life for this special performance. I enjoy working on any bellydance show but bringing a specialty theme to life such as this is particularly exciting. I love love love creative costuming and creative clients and I look forward to the next, whatever it may be! (Under the sea? Vintage? Unicorns perhaps?) 😉
