Bay Area Belly Dancing: Brilliant Wedding Entertainment

Belly Dancer for Weddings in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Your wedding—and the celebrations leading up to it—should be a memorable occasion for you and your loved ones. In fact, 81% of guests surveyed by The Knot wedding magazine said the thing they remembered most about a wedding they attended was the entertainment1. If you want an extraordinary wedding entertainer who will enthrall all your guests, look no further than Nyla Crystal.

“Nyla was a wonderful and unique addition to our Halloween wedding. She was so fun and spirited and she even had beautiful costumes to match our wedding color themes. When we first met her, she was such a bright and bubbly person and I knew working with her would be a breeze. I was also impressed she was getting a Ph.D. in the biological sciences at UCD (I was a zoology major there for undergrad) and I couldn’t believe how she could juggle such vastly different things. I also enjoyed her drummer. They were a great team and I know my guests had fun watching them. I highly recommend for your next wedding or party!”

Nyla Crystal has a wide range of costume colors to match your color theme and takes song requests to custom-build your wedding performance. Wedding shows range from a 30-minute belly dance performance to entertain guests as they finish eating and prepare for a night of dancing, to multiple shows with costume changes for all-night belly dance entertainment. If you wish, she will get your wedding party up and dancing at the end of the show or get the audience involved for photo opportunities and fun.

“If you are thinking of hiring a belly dancer for your wedding or other special event, hire Nyla Crystal right now! Not only is she highly skilled and extremely authentic, she is incredibly considerate, professional and very personable. Her performance was definitely a major highlight of our November wedding – we had a mixed bunch of guests from all ages and cultures, which can be a hard crowd to please, but she impressed them all! Definitely family friendly entertainment. Thank you so much, Nyla!”

Although belly dancers and live entertainment are traditional for Arab weddings, and dance performance is traditional for Indian weddings, your wedding does not have to have a Middle Eastern theme for a belly dance show. Nyla Crystal has performed for American, Russian, Turkish, Persian, Vietnamese, and Chinese weddings.
