Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should my booking be?
The sooner the better! It is always best to book well in advance to ensure that the dancer is available for the desired date and time. However, last minute shows may be accommodated dependent upon dancer availability, and flexibility of show time. Weekends as well as holidays tend to book quickly, please book in advance if you desire a show during these times.
Are performances available outside of Calgary?
Yes, within Alberta. With adequate notice, shows may be booked outside of the Calgary area at a rate of $1.00 per kilometer traveled in addition to performance fee.
What type of music will be played?
The dancer will provide Arabic music by CD/IPod. Specific song requests may be made in advance but will be dependent on dancer approval. The venue is responsible for providing an appropriate sound system.
Are shows appropriate for children?
Yes! All shows are family friendly.
What are the accepted methods of payment?
Cash is the preferred method of payment. Interact e-transfers or personal cheques are also accepted if payment is made in advanced. Unless otherwise arranged, payment is due immediately following the show.
Is a deposit required when booking a performance?
Shows which take place within Calgary do not require a deposit. For events outside of the Calgary area, it is asked that you pay the travel cost portion of the fee in advance. Serena accepts e-transfer payments and PayPal for deposits made in advance.
Is tipping appropriate?
Yes, unless otherwise requested by the host. Tucking bills into the dancers belt or shoulder strap are the most common ways to tip the dancer. Tips may also be added to the final payment or presented to the dancer after the show is over.
