Hire Us: Bellydance or Fire (Awesomely Nerdy or Otherwise) for Your Next Event

Need something special to wow guests at your next event? Our dancers and firespinners perform over 100 shows a year for corporate functions, weddings, festivals, comic cons, private events, clubs, restaurants, and theatres, and have taught and performed throughout the US, Germany, Spain, Canada, Morocco, Czech Republic, Costa Rica, and Argentina; our bellydancers have taught and performed at Tribal Fest, the largest tribal bellydance event in the world.

Raks Geek performances range from 5-90 minutes - fire is optional - and incorporate various styles of bellydance, dance props (swords, fan veils, poi, canes, feather fans, geek-inspired props, veils), LED flow toys, and/or fire props (palm torches, fans, staffs, swords). Shows can range from family-friendly to dark and experimental depending on your audience and needs: We've performed everywhere from libraries to comic cons to underground parties. Contact us to customize a performance that will thrill your guests!
