Laila performs solo or with her BellyDancers Chicago, a loose collaboration of Chicago's top belly dancers.

So whether you are looking for one belly dancer or 10, Laila can provide you the best entertainment for your event!

New Year's Eve Party in Delafield, WI on 12/31/2011
"We were very pleased with Laila's performance. All our guest at the party really enjoyed the dancing. Laila communicated well with us before the event so things ran smoothly with the music and the area in which we had her dance. Many of our guests joined in with trying to belly dance and it was great fun. We will have her back again in the future."

"Are you kidding??? This woman was amazing! She has a fun sense of humor, she was outgoing, she made my party great! It would have been a boring Communion with people standing around chatting, but instead everyone was laughing and very engaged and enjoying themselves. She was super professional, and hard-working; we loved her. I would recommend Laila Aziz to any of my friends who want to take a party and turn it into something unforgettable."
