Mariana is extremely professional and talented. However; I wish that she was more interactive with the audience and a little more fun. I'm sure that if you tell her this in advance she would accomodate, but I didn't have a chance to tell her during my party. I just assumed that was going to happen, but never did.

Mariana- *Award Winning Professional Belly Dancer’s Response:

I always inquire what one would like customized before a gig is scheduled. If nothing is noted, I reserve customer participation for the end of the show, usually limited to 1 song (4-5 minutes). I focus my attention on the guest(s) of honor and invite them to dance first, then I encourage the rest of the guests. Both of the above were executed with class and ease: both guests of honor danced as well as those others who wanted to, I never force participation. I usually leave immediately after a performance but instead I made an exception this time, and mingled with some of the guests afterwards thanking them for attending.Nothing less than a 5/5 performance/experience

Mariana is a true artist and professional. Before her magnificent performance, we discussed details. She was extremely open to crafting a presentation that fit my specific taste. It was a joy working with her prior to the event. The presentation, itself, was no less than awesome. It started with her interpretation of the Dance of Seven Veils. It featured multicolored veils and haunting melodies. Mariana’s motions were mesmerizing. The rhythms she chose were alluring. The pace of her dance was varied; which added to the excitement generated. Her interaction with her audience was consistent and masterful. The performance was seductively romantic.
