Also here in Germany you share tips with the band, but not with the house. The common thing is to give half of your tips to the band and the musicians share this half among them.In the end I did share with the band, it's pretty common to do that around here. It's not common here to share with the house though..
Ha ha Yshka, don't worry you'll get used to it:lol: It is the most common way to tip the dancer among people from Middle East, Turkey, Greece and Balkan. And if you dance at a big Turkish wedding for example, there is no better way to collect the tips, especially because sometimes you get A LOT of tipsI still don't like costume tipping much, if I don't have to I won't, but in some places here it is usual business.
Good questions, Marisha.So, as more of an audience memeber I have a few more questions about tipping
What if the dancer is dancing in a small smace and comes around twice or more. Should I tip her every time? First time? Second time?
What happens if I really liked the show but didn't have a chance to tip (e.g. sitting at a table that a dancer could not come to) - should I speak to the owner/host and ask about the dancer?

That'd be a bum bag. Our bums are your asses or butts.Did I?:think: What does the transatlantic group call the little packs that strap around the waist? (I am not even going to ask what fanny pack means in Europe.)
whoa, that's a bit confusing!That'd be a bum bag. Our bums are your asses or butts.
Our asses are donkeys, but we know what you mean as it's close enough to arse, which is the same as bum but a bit ruder.
Our butts are big barrels you collect rainwater for the garden in.
Our gardens are your backyards I think.
I believe your bums are our tramps (down and out types), while your tramps are ladies of easy virtue, who would be slags or a multitude of other unpleasant names over here.
