Thank you so much! Everyone really enjoyed your performance and we are truly grateful for the discount on your rates and your willingness to come to Camp Gardner. The event was a huge success - over $900,000 raised for kidney disease research and organ donation awareness!!! Thanks again!

Amarna and her troupe gave a wonderful performance for our celebration dinner. Their energy and enthusiasm was infectious and led to many of us getting up on our feet to join in the fun. I highly recommend them!

Just wanted to say thank you for appearing at our wedding reception. The choreography you came up with for the bride and bridesmaids was great, and a real surprise for the guests! Everyone I talked to mentioned how much they enjoyed your performance, and it got the whole room pumped to get out on the dance floor when the DJ started up again. It's going to be hard for people to one-up that reception!

Angel & Richard Haynes - December 2008


It was certainly our pleasure, I heard a lot of great feedback about your performance and I really appreciate you coming in at the last moment. You are a highly professional and talented dancer, not to mention a sweetie pie!

The dancers, Amarna and Kalilah were amazing. Their presence added so much to our event, and they certainly helped to raise money for our very important cause. The money raised this year is more than any other year, over $170,000.00, and will surely help find a cure for these deadly diseases.

Celebrity Waiters Luncheon at the Palliser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada - June 2006


Our Residents just loved the performance that you ladies did. We had a record number of Residents who came down on a Saturday afternoon to enjoy Entertainment. All the comments were positive about the dancing, and they loved your outfits. We have never had Belly Dancers at our Facility before so I was unsure how it would be accepted. We would love to have you come and dance for us again!

Thank you sooo much!!! Everyone had a great time & thought Amarna was wonderful! I'm sure it wasn't easy to "instruct" a crowd like ours, but she got everyone up on their feet & we were surprised by how many people were actually trying to dance! Dad said 'next time... forget the party & just send the belly dancer!!" - My daughter (3 yrs old)... hasn't stopped talking about what ‘marna taught her!... she's been spinning around the room ever since!! Thanks again... every one thought it was a great idea & would definitely consider booking a dancer for their events!... So hopefully we can send some more bookings your way!

Take care
