WHAT WILL A DANCE ACT DO AT YOUR EVENT?

Dancers perform choreographed and freestyle routines to music, bringing energy, passion and a strong visual impact to any occasion. They can perform solo, in couples or groups, depending on what is required.

There are many different styles of dance to choose from, including ballet, contemporary, jazz, ballroom, burlesque, flamenco and street dance. For a more exotic flavour, you can opt for belly dancing or a Bollywood dance performance.  

A Dance Act can be selected or tailored to suit the mood of your event perfectly. Professional dancers are exciting to watch and will dazzle guests with their skill and technique. Hiring a dancer is guaranteed to add glamour, vibrancy and elegance to your birthday party, anniversary, wedding or corporate function.

Many dance acts also offer taster classes and other options that give guests the opportunity to join in and learn a few moves. This is a great way to break the ice and get everyone up for a dance, even those with two left feet.

WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS ARE DANCERS HIRED FOR?

Dancers are suitable for engagement parties, weddings, dinner and cocktail parties, birthday parties, corporate functions, trade shows, exhibitions, product launches, award ceremonies, festivals, carnivals, street parties and community events. This article has helpful advice about choosing the right dance act for your event.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DANCE ACT FOR YOUR EVENT

Ballet Dancers

Nothing can rival the romance of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping violins in Swan Lake, or the timeless choreography of Marius Pepita. Classical ballet is filled with lavish sets, sumptuous music and rich theatrical dramatisations of dark fairy tales. Ballet originated in Renaissance Italy and developed into a fully-fledged art form in France. It remains hugely popular, with productions of classic and modern ballets filling theatres and opera houses across the world to this day.

Ballet dancers train from an early age, working tirelessly to perfect pliés, jètés and arabesques until they can float effortlessly across the room, the embodiment of grace and beauty. Although they make it look easy and may be slight in frame being a ballet dancer requires enormous strength and control.

For sophisticated evening events, cocktail parties and receptions, hiring one or more ballet dancers will provide a spellbinding performance, captivating the audience with elegant routines. Many ballet dancers can also perform more edgy contemporary dance or jazz styles, so just let them know if this would be a better fit for your event.

Ballet dancers can wear the standard tutu and ballet slippers or pointe shoes, or more contemporary dancewear and possibly bare feet, depending on what they will be dancing and what the booker would prefer. They can perform their own choice of routines, or tailor their costumes and music to encapsulate your chosen theme.

A ballet dancer will add sophistication to a fundraiser, gala dinner, corporate function, VIP event or award ceremony and will certainly bring sparkle and romance to a wedding or anniversary celebration. For young dancers, a professional ballerina dancing up close will be a dream come true and make any birthday magical.

Ballroom Dancers

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you can’t have escaped the enormous rise in popularity of ballroom dancing, thanks in large part to the success of Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing with the Stars. These TV dance talent shows have literally swept viewers off their feet and are watched by millions every week.

The appeal has a lot to do with the romance of partner dancing. Ballroom dancing is danced in pairs and involves structured routines that can take many years of training to master. Traditional ballroom styles include the Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Polka, Bolero, Paso Doble, Cha-cha-cha, Samba, Rumba, Merengue, Salsa, Jive and West Coast Swing.

These dances are full of drama and energy and are performed to wonderful music that will fill your venue with an electric atmosphere. Many ballroom dancers are happy to invite guests onto the dance floor after their performance, and some offer short, friendly classes where they teach a few basic steps and get everyone dancing as if they’ve been doing it forever!

Ballroom dancers would not be seen dead in jeans. The epitome of elegance, they wear only the most exquisite, richly coloured costumes. The women’s dresses are typically adorned with feathers, flowing skirts, rhinestones and sequins, adding more than a touch of glamour to any occasion.

Belly Dancers

If you’re looking for upbeat entertainment for an Arabian-themed party, celebration, festival or PR campaign, why not add a dash of mistique to the occasion with an exotic Belly Dancer?

The essence of Belly Dancing, which originated in the Middle East, is sinuous and sensuous movements with swaying hips. It is both a folk dance and a performance art. Basic moves include percussive hip drops and twists, fluid hip circles and shimmies and fast repetitive movements. The whole body is used to create dynamic and dramatic routines and the dance requires great control, particularly of the abdominal muscles.

Costumes are brightly coloured with lots of chiffon, scarves, beads, coins and jewellery. Some dancers also incorporate veil and sword shows into their routines! Belly Dancers often perform solo, either on stage or working around the room entertaining small groups, providing great walkabout entertainment. This will be an instant talking point and great for photo opportunities.

Dancers will often provide interactive entertainment, inviting guests to join in and have a go. This is a brilliant ice-breaker and creates a wonderful party atmosphere. Colleagues, guests, friends and family members will leave with a sway in their hips, a bounce in their step and a huge smile on their face.

Belly Dancing is an exotic and sensual dance form, but can also be suitable for children’s birthday parties. Many performers offer family-friendly shows and fun taster classes. This is a great option for young dance fans or if you’re looking for entertainment that gets the kids moving.

Bollywood dancers usually dance in a group, with numbers ranging from three to thirty including a live band, and they bring an irresistible element of fun to many celebrations.  

While this form of dance remains popular at Indian weddings, it has become increasingly popular around the world for all kinds of events. Many Bollywood dancers will get guests involved too, with some even offering taster classes and workshops, guaranteed to liven up any event!

For a celebration with a 1950s theme, what could be more perfect than a female dancer with the Olivia Newton John moves of Sandy in the movie Grease? For a 1960s night, it’s got to be Go Go dancing. Get down and funky with boogielicious 1970s disco struts, or go Hammer style with a bit of 1980s body popping!

Male Dancers

For slightly more unusual entertainment, why not hire a Male Dancer?

A Male Dancer can perform a hip-shaking Cha-Cha or Michael Jackson’s Thriller. He can transport guests back to the 1940s with vintage jazz routines and swing steps, bust out hip-hop moves from the latest music video or lead The Loco-Motion. With a professional Male Dancer on stage, anything could happen!

A male jazz dancer can enhance the theme of a vintage event, bringing the romance of Fred Astaire or the infectious energy of the jive. For a disco or 70s event, how about bringing your theme to life with John Travolta strutting, Saturday Night Fever style. If the 80s is more your time, evoke the era with some Michael Jackson moonwalking or a bit of break dancing.

hiring A dance act FOR YOUR WEDDING

Imagine a highly-trained, professional performer dancing an original routine to your favourite ballad or jazz song, or a ballet dancer performing graceful moves to beautiful music, specially selected for your ceremony or wedding breakfast. What could be more romantic? And what better way to entertain your guests. A vibrant, stunning dance show will bring magic to your celebrations, making your day one that you, your friends and family will cherish forever.

For a classical, elegant addition to your special day, you could hire a ballet dancer. They can perform well-known set pieces or their own choreography, accompanied by either a high-quality backing track of your chosen music, or live musicians. If you would prefer a more contemporary feel, there is the option of a more modern style of dancer. Without the traditional pointe shoes and tutu, they will bring a more earthy, artistic feel to your celebrations.  

Perhaps your wedding has a glitzy Gatsby theme, in which case how about flapper dancers or a performance troupe busting out the Charleston, or a tap dance, to your favourite jazz numbers? If your budget doesn’t stretch to a group of dancers, hire a solo Male or Female Dancer. Individual dancers all offer their own ranges of dance styles and each will make a strong impact at your wedding, whether it’s graceful and timeless ballet or contemporary performance, a jazz routine or an Irish jig!

Belly Dancers and Bollywood Dancers are hugely popular at Middle Eastern, European, Indian, Arabic and Asian weddings as well as hen, mehndi, henna and kina parties. With vibrant routines, colourful outfits and sensuous moves, they never fail to liven up proceedings and get everyone dancing.

A male dancer or dance duo can perform romantic ballroom or slow dancing, to ease guests into the evening reception after the first dance. For a rip-roaring atmosphere during the reception itself, a troupe of party dancers would inject some serious energy! Whatever kind of dancer your chose, they can take song requests and tailor their performances to your special day.

Some dancers offer private lessons ahead of your wedding day, to teach you the perfect routine for your first dance, so if you’d love to amaze your friends and family with moves they didn’t know you had, enquire about this option.

To break the ice and give your wedding guests a real treat, how about hiring a Flash Mob? Flash mobs prepare high-energy routines in any style, from jazz to hip-hop, appearing out of nowhere and surprising the crowd with electrifying performances, sure to get your party started!

HOW MUCH DOES A dance act COST TO HIRE?

Dancers are trained, skilled professionals who have studied for years to master their craft. They provide high-quality entertainment and when setting their fees, they have to factor in creative preparation, costumes and rehearsal time.

Prices will vary depending on the level of experience of each act, travel time to your event, the event and show type and the number of dancers performing. Here is a rough guide to the basic price ranges for standard packages:

Solo Dancer: £150 - £300+ in the UK ($150 - $300+ in the U.S. and 170 € - 340+ € in Europe)

Dance Duo: £300 - £1500+ in the UK ($300 - $1500 in the U.S. and 340 € - 1700+ € in Europe)

Dance Trio: £450 - £1500+ in the UK ($450 - $1500 in the U.S. and 500 € - 1700+ € in Europe)

Dance Act 4-5 Dancers: £1000 - £2400+  in the UK ($1000 - $2400+ in the U.S. and 1100 € - 2700+ € in Europe)

Dance Troupe 6+ Dancers: £1500 - £2500+ in the UK ($1500 - $2500+ in the U.S. and 1700 € - 2800+ € in Europe)

Like most entertainers, Dance Acts tend to charge more at key times of year such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Equally, bespoke performances tailored specifically to your event and longer performances will cost more than standard shows.

As with booking any act, it’s worth paying for a reliable performer who will turn up on time and deliver a great evening’s entertainment. See our Essential Tips below for information on booking terms and conditions.

Our entertainers’ directory is the perfect tool to help you find the right Dancer or Dance Act for your budget. You can easily search for the best acts in your area and message them directly. Some acts even include a rough price guide in their profile. Since prices do vary widely, depending on the act and the event, we recommend getting in touch with your chosen performer for a completely free, no-obligation quote.

HOW LONG WILL THEY Perform FOR?

Dancers can tailor their performance times to suit your event, whether it be a short and fast-paced 15 minute set or longer and multiple sets for bigger events and weddings. Here are some examples of single dance set lengths:

Solo dance performance: 3 minutes to 20 minutes

Group dance: 2 x 5 minute routines

Full cabaret or troupe production: 45 minutes to 3 hours

Taster class: 1 hour

Sets may be split into two or three short performances. Longer packages will typically involve more routines, mix and mingle time with guests, time for guests to join in, and possibly more dancers.

set up & stage requirements for dance acts

Flooring

Dancers will need a smooth, flat surface area on which to perform. It should be free from furniture, pillars, cables, low overhead beams and other obstacles. Ideally there will also be some wing space at the sides of the stage for high-speed entrances and exits.

Vinyl or sprung floors are ideal for dancers as they absorb impact when landing on the ground. If the floor is wooden and your performer will be dancing barefoot, the area should be checked for splinters and protruding nails.

Stage Size

The amount of performance space required depends on the style of dancing, the number of dancers and the type of show. Here is an outline of minimum performance space required:

Solo Salsa or Tap Dancer: 4m x 4m

Solo Ballet or Contemporary Dancer: 6m x 4m

Dance Couple: 7m x 6m

Dancer Trio: 8m x 6m

Four or more dancers: 9m x 6m or more

If your guests will be dancing, they will need sufficient space to move safely and comfortably. You should allow 1.5m x 1.5m per person and 3m x 3m per couple.

Hired dancers may require access to the performance area ahead of the show, in order to check the space and make any necessary adjustments to the performance.  

Equipment

Most dance acts do not provide their own lighting or PA, although some do. Dancers will usually bring their own music, so make sure there is a facility to play it. As with any entertainment booking, any electrical equipment used should be PAT tested and operated by trained technicians.

Dancers and dance troupe captains will want to hand music to the DJ or sound technician (if this has not been arranged separately) and go over how to cue the set.  

As always, the best advice we can give is to ask your act or acts about their set-up requirements before booking, as space, equipment and set-up requirements will vary from act to act.

Other Considerations

 

event coordination

It is advisable for a designated person to greet dancers as they arrive at the venue, to show them where the dressing room, toilets, backstage and stage area are located and where they can get food and drink. They should also act as a point of contact so that any issues relating to performance times or equipment can be communicated.

parking

Many performers will come in a car or van, so make sure they have a reserved parking space as close to the performance area as possible, so that they can load and unload easily. For events in busy town centres, performers will appreciate you letting them know where the nearest available parking spaces are or where public car parks are located.

backstage area

Dancers require a private room away from the guests and the public, ideally with good lighting and a mirror, in which to get changed, warm up and relax in between sets. The space should be secure enough for them to be able to leave their personal belongings. A small, lockable room or back office may be sufficient if there is not a custom-made dressing room available, although if you have hired a troupe of dancers, they will need more space.

If possible, bathroom facilities should also be provided. Dancing is very physically demanding and performers are likely to be hot and sweaty by the end of the show and want to shower. There should also be access to drinking water.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR BOOKING A dance act

 

How far in advance should I book?  

Popular dancers get booked up months in advance. Weekends are often busy times and Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve get booked up well in advance. So, get your booking in nice and early!

Do I need to provide food?

Dancers use a lot of energy when they perform, so ensure they have easy access to soft drinks and water free of charge. Performers will not expect alcoholic drinks to be included. A ready supply of snacks and sandwiches will also keep hard working performers fuelled over what can be a long day. This can be set up in a designated area or as a running tab at the bar.

Whatever kind of dance act you have hired, soft drinks, water, tea and coffee should be available, and if they are with you all day, a proper meal should be provided and a quiet place to eat, away from the public and guests.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

Dancers usually require a deposit of around 15-20% of the overall cost, in order to secure the booking. This protects the performer against lost income in the event of cancellation, and also gives you reassurance that you have a confirmed booking.

Will I have to cover travel expenses?

These will usually be included in the quote you are given, as the dancer will need to calculate their travel costs, especially if they are travelling some distance.

Cancellation and Insurance

 

What happens if the act cancels?

Thankfully this rarely happens, but in the unlikely event that, due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, a dance act is unable to perform for you as agreed, they will usually have a contingency plan. This means they can send a similar performer in their place, at no extra cost to you. For confirmation of this, you can check the Terms and Conditions in your contract.

What happens if our event is cancelled?

If you are in the unlucky position of having to cancel your event, there will be a cancellation fee. The amount usually increases the closer it gets to the event date. For example, cancelling 90 days before the event might incur 75% of the overall fee, while cancelling less than 30 days prior might mean paying the entire sum.  

These conditions should be laid out in the contract you receive when booking, so check before signing. If you have any reason to think your event may not go ahead as planned, it would be better to let your act know as soon as possible.

Insurance / Risk Assessment

Ideally, the venue and the act you hire will have Public Liability Insurance. This covers you and them in the event of a claim, should any performers, members of the public or guests be injured at your event, or any damage be caused to property.

If your act is a member of Equity, a trade union that represent live performers in the entertainment industry in the UK (the American Guild of Musical Artists or the     Actors' Equity Association in the U.S. and various unions and societies in Europe), this gives you extra reassurance that they are professional and trustworthy, fully insured and abiding by industry standard contracts.

Clarify in Advance!

When it comes to practicalities, it’s always better to discuss them in advance, to avoid any unexpected hitches on the day. So don’t be shy. Make sure you and your performer are clear on what is required. Good communication is the key to planning a great event.
