Are you a Restaurant Owner interested in hiring a Bellydancer?

If you own and operate a Mediterranean or Middle Eastern themed restaurant, having a belly dancer is a way to transport your guests to another place through music and dance. By having a belly dancer dance in your restaurant, you can truly satisfy all the senses of your guests. Not only will they experience the delicious smell and taste of your food and drink, but their enjoyment will be complete as they experience the sound of Middle Eastern music and the see the beauty of a belly dance.

Many non-Middle Eastern restaurants across American are also booking belly dancers for their restaurants as a way to attract new costumers & keep their existing clientele coming back again and again.

With many American pop culture icons like Shakira and Brittany Spears belly dancing, everyone is talking about it. Now not only Middle Easterners, but also many Americans are interested in seeing a real belly dancer "live and in person." If you were thinking that Americans don't like or won't accept belly dancing in your restaurant, oh how wrong you would be! Belly dancing is now a part of the American mainstream and has become at once something exotic, cultural, interesting and delightful for Middle Easterners and Americans alike.

Here a few quotes from satisfied costumers who went to restaurants that already have belly dancers:
  • "I dined at ... a few months ago and loved every moment of the experience. Food, Atmosphere, Belly Dancer and Service transported us to ..."
  • "The five-course meal was outstanding, the atmosphere luscious and the live entertainment of belly dancers was illuminating."
  • "At least the Saturday night, that 20 of us went there, a couple of pretty Arabic Dancers kept our group entertained all night."
  • "And later on the weekends, you never know when the audience will start joining in with the belly dancing!"

A belly dancer helps your restaurant to create an authentic feel, as well as a warm, friendly & entertaining atmosphere. And, as we know, atmosphere is what separates an 8 star restaurant from a 10 star one. Note that the restaurants from which the above quotes were taken, are all highly ranked by their customers (in no particular order, Nicolas,Salar, Casbah, Byblos, Persepolis, Istanbul Cafe, and the Imperial Fez) - and ALL of them have belly dancers!

Why should you hire the Dancers from Nazeem Allayl?

You have enough to worry about with running your restaurant and trying to schedule your kitchen and wait staff, why should also have to worry about scheduling your belly dancer(s) too?

When you engage Nazeem Allayl, we handle all of the scheduling & hiring of dancers for you. You never have to worry about a dancer getting sick, going on vacation or just not showing up.

This just doesn't happen with Nazeem Allayl, because we are a group of six professional dancers that all know the same dances, were professionally trained by Schadia in Restaurant style dancing, and thus can fill in for each other.
