Divana was fantastic! she is friendly and very talented and she was there with plenty of time to go over stuff with me before it was time for her to perform. She was great at getting the guest involve and getting them to dance along with her, even the shy ones! She was a hit.

Desideria was fantastic. She was on time, had great looking costumes and her dancing was exciting and entertaining to all of us who were there. All of the men and their wifes including my own said afterwards that Desideria was the best Belly Dancer that we've ever had perform at our banquets over the years. We will book her again for our next banquet. She has great carisma and did lots of audience participation. Her style of dancing was different than most Belly Dancers that we've had in the past. It was more exciting. We highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking great entertainment. D. Migliore, NYC, NY

Our family was overwhelmed with Desideria's performance. Her Egyptian dances flowed like the gazelle. Our family was commenting on her beautiful costumes, each was intricately designed for that period of time. She mixed with the crowd well, as we had many ages present there. She is so good with children and had a few of my cousins up there dancing with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone because of her great style. She is a true professional and it showed in her manner.
