Professional Oriental Dance Shows
Through our shows, we aim to illustrate the beauty, richness and diversity of Arabic music and dance, thus instilling an appreciation of Arab culture amongst our audiences. Our performances are a mixture of both traditional and contemporary styles, with an an oriental, folklore and fusion repertoire that is ever-growing. There are a variety of pre-packaged theatrical shows available, featuring oriental and/or popular folk styles. A typical solo performance by Jameelah is usually 15 minutes long (additional sets and costume changes may be arranged, audience interaction is optional), whereas a troupe show  is usually 25 - 45 minutes long. Shows can also be tailored to suit one's requirements. Optional add-ons include live tabla players, fire blowers/sword swallowers as well as arabic cuisine (native chefs specializing in moroccan, egyptian, lebanese, syrian, palestinian).

Fun Classes
Fun classes are the ultimate form of interactive bellydance entertainment. A great way to add some sparkle to any event, these are ideal for hens parties, bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, corporate team-building events, conferences and more.

Wedding Performances
We have special packages specifically for weddings incorporating dance, live music and cuisine. Conservative costuming options available. Kindly contact us for further details.

Besides general entertainment, Ya Habibi can also offer various edu-tainment packages. Designed to educate as well as amuse, these options are suitable for educational institutions such as schools, as well as for corporate or private settings. Of particular interest to Educational Institutions would be our Seminar Packages - Contact us for more information or to discuss your requirements.

We take great pride in the way we represent the art of oriental dance and as such all our performances are family-oriented and children-friendly.  Particular attention is given to folkloric costuming, whereas more conservative cabaret costumes may be worn if so required.

We strongly dissassociate ourselves from the notion that bellydance is some sort of male or exotic entertainment. In this respect we DO NOT ACCEPT ANY BOOKINGS for bellydance performances at BACHELOR PARTIES, bars, nightclubs, seedy private parties and ALL MALE EVENTS - this includes events where audience is predominantly male. In-costume tipping in NOT accepted. Any tips may be handed to the dancer after the show or in typical arabic "money shower". Kindly note that calls where the caller number is withheld are not answered.
