    Hi Rachy,

    I am a professional and I dance and teach for a living. I *NEVER* perform at bachelor parties and I really don't think any respectful dancer should IMHO. It's an art form, not something to entertain roudy and drunk men.

    I dance at two different restaurants that pay fairly well and I also do private gigs which is where most of my gig income comes from like weddings, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, hens nights, etc. And to be honest, I would make the same performing at a bachelor party as I would a private upscale corporate function. The vast majority of my income comes from teaching though.

    Job or hobby? Can it be both ? However I only take gigs that sound respectable to me. I am very picky!

    I can more describe it as life passion !!!
    I still keep my work after 20 years in Parliament its not wise to leave it but same time I teach nowdays around 3-4 hours per day, mostly privite.
    As for performing its very rare in the last 15 years, lets say not more than 30 times. So i do select where I dance.
    BUT have to say that my best times are when I dance for arabic audience women or men.
    I just LOVE their surprise and their secret chats like, she is arab she is hidding it, she looks arab and she dance like arab.. etc lol

    I was not nessicarily asking if you would do the bachelor party, but it was what I was told and the price. I was just curious if those prices where "reasonable" or the same for restuarant dances, or whatever else you do them for.

    thanks for all the great info. i will not be dancing for men alone, nor would i think of it, it's just what i had been told .

    I started taking classes as a hobby, because I was really interested in this particular dancing. But now at the moment as I realised that I love! this dancing and performing it in both theaters or private shows as restaurants, I'm thinking seriosly the possibility of becaming some day a professional dancer!!

    Default hi

    I'm still a beginner so bellydance is my hobby at this moment. For now, I absolutely want to get better but I also want it to stay a hobby.
    But you never know what the future will bring...
