"Hired her for a Holiday event. She was very easy to work with, was thorough and followed up to ensure we liked her song selection and/or if we had something else in mind which we did and she happily adjusted. Our guests loved it! She did a performance with a veil, snake and one without any props. You will not regret hiring her."

"Nimeera arrived before the starting time to get ready, it was a surprise performance for my 11 years old daughter, and it was a great addition to the party. We loved her interactive performance, she communicated with me from day one, she suggested to me what was going to be ideal for children of that age. I strongly recommend Nimeera for your event. I am looking forward to having another occasion to hire her again. Thank you Nimeera! It was a pleasure to have you and see your show. "

"Nimeera was fantastic. Very, very professional to work with. Responsive to emails, detail oriented, showed up on time, etc. And she was certainly accommodating in tailoring the music, format, etc. to meet the occasion, which was my wife's birthday party. Plus she was a champ in driving more than 2 hours to a remote location in WV. I would certainly recommend her, and would contract with her again, when I have the chance. Thumbs way up!"

"Nimeera, my husband and I can't thank you enough for being at our Lebanese/Persian wedding. I know we booked you last minute but you were so professional and such a pleasure to work with. You took the time to call me to see what I wanted and suggested songs you thought I would like and even removed songs I didn't. Everyone at the wedding kept complementing us on how entertaining you were. The guests really loved you! They said, "You danced with all your heart while keeping a smile on your face!" I would definitely book you again for another event in the near future. Thank you so much."

"[Nimeera] is the area's expert on the Indian forms of belly dancing."
"If you're lucky, her Egyptian set will include her candle dance. For that she wears a triple-decker candelabra headpiece, with 11 lit candles burning brightly...she's a master, showing the muscle isolation belly dancers strive for."

"I am very excited! I enrolled in classes with Nimeera at Cleopatras Closet and its everything I have been looking for at this stage of my bellydancing. I've attended 3 so far. My physical therapist cleared me as good to go!!!
Nimeera goes to each student and helps them perform the move correctly, right down to what muscle group. We warm up . . I mean REALLY warm up in the beginning with core strengthening exercises and we drill and we dance and . . . I'm happy, sweaty and pooped out by the end of class :)
I'm also extremely happy to be enrolled in Marci's ATS classes on Wednesday nights at Cleopatras Closet. I always wanted to learn ATS, true ATS, and she is under the guidance of Carolenas teacher certification program.... sweeeeeeeet :)
These classes are the meat and potatoes training I have been searching for! :)
tonights the night ... zills . .I love zills..."
