Why book a dancer through Airtasker?

Through Airtasker, dancers for hire are within your reach! Our platform makes it easy to book a professional dancer to perform at your event and make it much more entertaining and memorable!

Booking a dancer or an entire dance troupe can do many wonders for your event. When you know that your guest list is mainly composed of people too shy to take to the dance floor when the band or DJ begins to play, dancers can help get things moving! And if you’re having a themed event, dancers can take it up a notch, whether it’s an opulent affair or a 70s themed party!

Once you put up a task, expect Taskers in your area to approach you with their offers. When in doubt, you can check out their profiles and read reviews about their experience, skills, and specialities. Make the necessary arrangements, and the next thing you have to do is enjoy your party and let the dancers add value to your event!

Top Dancer related questions

You should first take a look at their expertise. Though dancers must be versatile, those focusing exclusively on one or two dance styles or forms usually have a high level of expertise and can put on a more authentic show. You should also consider their professional experience and the kinds of events and venues they have performed in.

It depends. Belly dancing can have different space requirements with ballet. It also depends on how many professionals you will get because a larger troupe of dancers would naturally require a bigger space. In any case, dancers need a space big enough to move freely without obstructions. They will also need to rehearse in that space before their performance, allowing them to get in, check the venue, and work with the technical staff. 

Dancers are most likely to bring their own music as they will perform a choreographed routine. You just have to make sure that their file works with whatever technical equipment you have at your event. And aside from the flat and spacious surface that they need to perform on, they will also need a room where they can change into their costumes and safely leave their belongings while they perform. Talk to your Tasker to know what else they need.

It’s recommended that you book a dancer at least a month or more before your event. This is to allow them to arrange their schedules and lock your booking in advance accordingly. This also gives them ample time to prepare for their performance for your event, from the choreography to costumes. If you need last-minute arrangements, indicate this in your task post to find someone who can accommodate your needs.

Suggested reads about Dancer

What do dancer services include?

When you’re planning an event, you want it to be a truly magical experience for all your guests. Hiring professional dancers to perform an expertly choreographed routine for your event can make it a truly memorable occasion. Here are some of the most common types of dance entertainment that can command the attention of any audience:

Breakdance

Want to have a hip and modern party? Consider booking breakdancers for your event! These types of dance can make the crowd go wild with the dynamic choreography, perfect stunts and signature styles. From the slickest windmills and headspins to jackhammers, breakdancers can definitely wow your guests and give them an experience they are sure to love. 

These are extremely popular, especially with younger people, making them perfect for any party with young ones or the young at heart! Don’t forget to immortalise the memories by getting someone to capture photos at your party!

Ballet

If you want something elegant and sophisticated, a ballet dance performance is an excellent choice! Ballerinas can provide you with a mesmerising and enchanting show full of beauty and grace. Professional ballerinas typically spend many years training and perfecting powerful, choreographed routines to different genres of music. When you hire one, you’re sure to have perfect entertainment, whether it’s classical, neoclassical, or contemporary ballet. 

Besides formal corporate events, performances by ballet dancers are also fit for a classy wedding reception! To make it even more special, hire experienced wedding vendors on Airtasker to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams.

Ballroom dancing

Ballroom dancers can put on spectacular performances as they twirl around the dance floor with expertise and elegance! Mostly popular among the older generation, ballroom dancers can be perfect for birthday parties or milestone wedding anniversaries. They can also perform in glamorous affairs like awards shows, conferences, executive retreats, product launches, and year-end functions. When planning events such as these, it’s also essential to have the technical aspects covered, so make sure to hire someone to handle your audiovisual needs.

Belly dancing

For a more exotic type of dance, why not book a belly dancer to perform at your event? Aside from the belly dancer using their stomach muscles to perform this type of dance, your guests can also be fascinated by the colourful costumes, veils, belly chains, and many more elements that can please the eye. Some can even use props like swords, snakes, and fire to elevate their performance! If you’re thinking of planning an Arabian-inspired event or want to have some diverse entertainment for your event, let belly dancers bring it to life!
