Belly Dance

Are you kidding??? This woman was amazing! She has a fun sense of humor, she was outgoing, she made my party great! It would have been a boring Communion with people standing around chatting, but instead everyone was laughing and very engaged and enjoying themselves. She was super professional, and hard-working; we loved her. I would recommend Laila Aziz to any of my friends who want to take a party and turn it into something unforgettable.Review by Lou W. FROM CHICAGO, IL ON 5/1/2011

We were very pleased with Laila's performance. All our guest at the party really enjoyed the dancing. Laila communicated well with us before the event so things ran smoothly with the music and the area in which we had her dance. Many of our guests joined in with trying to belly dance and it was great fun. We will have her back again in the future.Review by Linda M. FROM DELAFIELD, WI ON 12/31/2011

So whether you are looking for one belly dancer or 10, Laila can provide you the best family-style entertainment for your event! Laila is also available for bachelorette and ladies-only parties where she will give a mini-performance and then teach a private lesson full of helpful pointers to take away from the party. 

Absolutely wonderful! People were talking about it days after!!Review by Sara B. FROM MCHENRY, IL ON 6/25/2016
