Learn choreographies and perform!

Build new friendships!

Holiday Christmas and New Year's Eve Entertainment Ideas

I can't believe it's December already! With so much going on it's easy to forget details of your Holiday Party. But the one thing you should do is book your entertainment early! Whether it's Belly dancers, fire performers, Samba, Great Gatsby Flappers or Bollywood dancers, our evenings, especially Fridays and Saturdays 8-9 fill up FAST. This goes double for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. And as much as we would love to be everywhere at once, until they perfect personal teleporters it simply isn't possible. If you know you want entertainment at your Christmas or New Year's party then call today to avoid getting second choice time slots or worse, no entertainment!

Motivation November Belly Dance Fitness Classes in Boca Raton

The Holidays are upon us, which means not only more parties and fun but also stress, travel and holiday weight gain. The average American gains up to 30 lb between October and February in fact. Don't be a statistic! Stop the bulge while learning a new dance that will also boost your self confidence, coordination, memory and more. Belly Dance will not only help keep the holiday weight off but it is also a great stress reducer, which we all need when the relatives have over stayed their welcome.

End of Summer Student Showcase at Estia Greek Taverna Boca Raton Florida

Sometimes it is hard to find performance opportunities as a student. The old problem of everyone wants someone with experience, yet you can't get out there to get the experience cause you don't have enough experience. Luckily, we have a solution via Student Showcases every few months or so at the lovely venue Estia Greek Taverna in Boca Raton. On a select night the students of Cheeky Bellydance come and show their latest choreographies in Belly dance, Bollywood, fire dance and more. Sometimes we even get a surprise performance or two from Sirens, guest photographers and videographers and live drummers to brighten the evening even more! Not to mention that Estia has the best Greek food this side of the Atlantic with fresh fish and lamb entrees and their world famous chocolate baklava. 

Interested in performing? Join the weekly technique class Saturdays 11:45-12:45 at Loibel Dance Studio in Boca and/or the prop class Mondays 6:30-7:30 at Boca Glades or sign up for privates in fire or Bollywood dance and you too can be on the stage!

Uh-oh Halloween came and went and you're still feeling spooky? Well good thing for you there is a Friday the 13th this November! I know I still have my halloween stuff out so there is still time to book a spooky fire show or dark themed Belly Dance show in South Florida!

Halloween Party Ideas! Entertainment, Dancers, Creepy Tiki, Fire and More!

Halloween is just around the corner and the last thing you want is for your party to be a run of the mill bore. Be sure to make a Samhain no one will ever forget by booking one of Cheeky Bellydancer's several All Hallow's Eve inspired acts!

 

Halloween Belly Dance Show

Combining traditional belly dance props with creative staging, music and surprises, your guest's will scream with delight over acts such as Lauren's famous Demon Wing number, her mournful witch raising her beloved from the dead or her thrilling fire sword, popular no matter what holiday!

Dark Fire Ballet Halloween Show

Or perhaps you want demon ballerinas who dance with fire instead of flowers? In Sirens' mini ballet the willies have won and Giselle and the other jilted dead brides dance on their lover's graves while luring fresh victims. 

Broken Dolls Fire Burlesque La Boheme Inferno

Or maybe you are hoping for something a little sexier this halloween? How about a fire burlesque show complete with the glitz of ostrich feather fans and cheeky fun but with a dark underbelly of fire 

Creepy Tiki Haunted Luaus 

And because we are in South Florida, where the weather feels less like Halloween and more like a tropical island perhaps a Creepy Tiki Show is in order. Traditional Tahitian dance fused with fire poi, fire swords, fire palms and more! The show can be traditional or completely fun with an added Dusk till Dawn style fire fan finale

First Day of Fall! Season Entertainment in South Florida

Though we don't experience much seasonal difference in South Florida, we can still see the subtle differences, shorter days, slightly less humid evenings, pumpkin spiced everything, so we know Fall is upon us. Perhaps our biggest indicator is our sudden dreary and rainy evenings that lead to a lot of canceled plans. Which, though is a disappointment, the home time allows us to take some time for self reflection, catch up on projects or perhaps just some Netflix and chill.

But what you should be doing is planning the fall parties! Halloween, Full Moon, Friday the 13th (Coming in November!) and all the Libra and Scorpio birthdays! Regardless of the occasion, every party is heightened with some dance entertainment be it belly dance, samba, fire, bollywood or Polynesian (creepy tiki anyone?). Get the Fall kicked off right by using Cheeky Belly Dancer for your party needs!

Throw some kink and danger into your typical Valentine's party, with a fun and sexy burlesque show!  You can even throw it a day early to take full advantage of Friday the 13th and keep V Day open for lovers.

New Year New You! Belly Dance Class for 2015 Resolutions!

Loosing weight and getting healthy is probably the most popular New Year Resolution. Even when we are in a healthy weight range, we are always striving for a better body, better balance, control and finesse. Unfortunately, New Year Resolutions are hard to stick to, especially when we go to fads like Crossfit or Zumba, which may feel fine at the beginning but quickly lead to burn out and/or injuries. Injuries occur because of bad form and oftentimes fad workouts aren't focused on keeping you safe, just losing weight. They can also be so boring! You spend so much time dedicated to losing weight mind as well learn a skill in the process. This is where a dance class can fill the void. Enjoy the perks of cardio and lean muscle building all the while learning a new dance and culture. Not only will you loose weight you will learn balance and coordination, improve your memory and develop a new grace. Other workouts simply can not give you all the benefits of belly dance class. Belly Dance lessons also imporve your public presentation, carriage and helps with shyness. Students enjoy performance opportunities and the sister hood that dance creates with fellow classmates.

Party Ideas: Nutcracker Land of the Sweets Belly Dancers

 Tea Dancer

Tea Dancer

 Coffee Dancer

Coffee Dancer

For me the Holidays always bring up memories of ballet, specifically "The Nutcracker". Coming from classical ballet this was the time of year when we were little we got to share the stage with the professional dancers, and when we got older we had the privilege to dance the dances ourselves. So out of this nostalgia I have created a belly dance variation of the dances in the Land of the Sweets. These are the short vignettes that are iconic from "The Nutcracker" which showcase a ballet variation of folk dances around the world that represent different sweets. 

For our version we do a slow veil dance for the Arabian Dance, or Coffee dance, and spirited fan veil dance for Chinese Dance or Tea dance and an Andalusian Flamenco fusion for the Spanish Dance or Chocolate Dance. For something sweet and just in time for Christmas, book today!

Party Ideas: Frozen Ice Queen Glo/ LED Dancers

Not every Holiday party needs to have a Christmas or even Religious theme. The period coming up to the Winter Solstice is a time of celebration for everyone. For Holiday Parties that don't have a religious theme, or for just something different why not have a Frozen Ice Queen dancer? There can be 1-3 dancing with glo LED isis wings and LED crowns as well as LED fans, belts and poi. Or combine the LED with fire props for an extra edge.  Perfect for children's parties as well that want more than just an Elsa impersonator. Ask about special variations of the show using the Frozen soundtrack.

Party Ideas: Christmas in Hawaii

Mele Kalikimaka! In South Florida, we don't have the benefit of seasons changing, but that doesn't mean we can't throw the best Christmas Parties! And with our weather just a little bit cooler it is actually the best time to use that patio anyways. For a different Christmas or Holiday party theme why not try a Christmas in Hawaii party? Throw a few tiki torches in the back and roast a pig and you're good to go! Now for entertainment! A fun Tiki Show is in order and we have you covered! Experience a full Polynesian Show or a Modern Tiki Fire Show complete with limbo and a quick tutorial on a popular hula.
