Other Services


Wedding celebrations in all Middle Eastern countries have included the presence of a dancer acting as high priestess in pre-Islamic times with ceremonial functions blessing the Bride and Groom. In present day, a bellydancer leads the Bride and Groom into the reception room to present the newley married couple to their guests. This procession is known as the Zaffa.

In addition to the Zaffa procession at the wedding ceremony, the bellydancer will also perform a special dance with a shemadan. After the show she gets the Bride and Groom to dance together for their guests. She then gets all the relatives and friends up to dance creating an atmosphere that everyone will remember and treasure forever.
