"I booked a belly dancing lesson with Moonjelly Belly as part of a hen party day for a close girlfriend. It was a surprise for her and her expression on realising what we were about to do was priceless! Beverley pulled out some jingly scarfs for our waists which immediately got everyone in the mood and the moment the music started you couldn't help but begin to move to the infectious beat. Beverley's descriptions of the various dancing positions and the expressions on her face kept us all giggling madly! She put a great 'sexy' swing into what we were doing, just raunchy enough to keep the hen party flavour. We were made to feel at ease immediately, and you just didn't have the opportunity to feel self-conscious. Even if you thought you couldn't dance, the moves were broken down and made simple - plus this was all about attitude and you could just roll with it! I loved the way Beverley paid special attention to the bride and helped us pose for a great group picture at the end of the session. The photos have been hysterical and I have had fantastic feedback from everyone who attended about how much they enjoyed the dancing - a couple are even looking at taking more lessons. The whole experience was well worth every cent!" Susannah White
"I was called upon recently to organise the hen party for a friend, and having taken classes with Moonjelly, asked her to be the entertainment. The result was absolute perfection! She pitched herself beautifully and struck the exact right balance between saucy and respectable; naughty enough to make the hen feel hen-like, while not causing her serious embarrassment in front of friends and family. We all went away buzzing and took at least one new dance move with us. My friend still tells people about how much fun her party was, and I am thrilled that she came out of it with such an exotic and colourful memory (not mention the photos!) to treasure. Moonjelly is a consumate entertainer!"
Childrens Eastern Princess Party
Your little girl will love dressing up in sparkly clothes for her party. Moonjelly's affinity for children, natural mischievousness and enthusiasm is mixed with prior experience as a childhood educator/educational entertainer to create a vibrant party atmosphere.
For one hour our child will be enthralled by storytelling, feel like a fairytale exotic princess with bindi's or jewels applied, with eastern style makeup and, of course, dance with lots of jiggles and giggles. Mum's are encouraged to join in on the fun.
Party ideas to set the theme
Drape fabrics around the house. Mosquito nets draped over the food table or couch create an Eastern appearance.
Chocolate gold coins for goodie bags, or on the 'banquet table'.
Children encouraged to wear sparkly clothes to the party.
Pass the parcel with 'jewel necklaces/bracelets/hairpieces' for prizes.
Also available is Zippity Zoo Mobile Petting farm animals such as Marty the miniature goat, Peter Rabbit and Tiara the miniature pony - "all the fun of the farm brought to you".
"I had the pleasure of having Beverley perform at my daughter's seventh birthday party this year and can highly recommend her for any girls (or mums!) who enjoy dressing up and having good, noisy fun. From start to finish,Beverley had all the girls inspired, transfixed and enchanted by her spectacular dancing and magical story-telling. They couldn't wait to dig into the brightly coloured scarves and belts that were provided; or to be transformed with exotic make-up and bindi (and she was very cautious about any girls who may have been sensitive to any of the products used), before learning a good selection of dance moves and having a work-out that fully justified all the party food they later ate! Beverley is able to teach in a way that fully embraces the fun and passion of dance and I can confirm that, weeks after the event, my daughter and her friends would still be found wiggling their hips and turning up in strange exotic garb! If you want to keep a bunch of boisterous girls occupied and entertained for the duration of a party, this is a sure-fire winner (and best of all, isn't weather-dependent!).
Moonjelly specialises in creating one-off workshops for all occasions, including corporate leisure activities, theme functions, plus team building. Performance and interaction can be tailored to match the theme, aims and objectives of the occasion.
Examples of past packages include:
Special guest appearance at end of day dinner - Bellydance performance followed by short fun workshop for attendees. This workshop included teaching groups to bellydance their name and the theme phrase for the day's training "customer satisfaction guaranteed!"
Boardroom appearance marketing Middle Eastern holiday offered as a performance incentive, performance followed by short workshop for the CEO's - lots of fun and laughter, a great ice breaker for the brain storming that would occur later in the day.
One hour warm-up for annual national team building day with Las Vegas/Elvis theme
"Healthwise had much pleasure in having the lovely MoonJelly perform for us at our Southern Conference in late Nov 2005. What a breath of fresh air!!!, especially after such a long day of boring conference!. Not only did we have a lot of fun but Moonjelly showed us that she can relate very much to our corporate scenario and obviously possesses immense knowledge in her field and that of the corporate environment. I would recommend her to anyone!!... Well maybe not the local church group! Stay Healthy - Kind regards, Brett Humble, Business Leader, Healthwise."
