About

For a bellydancer with a difference, look no further!

Kalikah Jade is a nationally recognised contemporary belly dance artist based in Adelaide, South Australia. She is an energetic and sensual performer who fuses traditional and tribal bellydance, specialising in improvised performances. A belly dance student of over 10 years, Kalikah has trained extensively across many disciplines of the dance with both Australian and international artists. She has developed an exotically hypnotic style which reflects the earthy grace and artistry of Classical technique with the stunning elegance and mysteriously slinky movements of Tribal, adding her decidedly dark flavour – a unique twist leaving her audience delightfully intrigued and entertained.

 

Kalikah is available for workshop bookings and shows across Australia, and also private events – please use the booking form here to enquire about rates and availability.

Her performance specialty includes elements such as sword balancing and manipulation (definitely a crowd pleaser), exotically mysterious veil dancing and the spectacular Wings of Isis. She has also recently added Double Sword balancing to her repertoire. Her performance style can range from cheeky and playful to dark and brooding, with music styling varying from traditional Egyptian ‘Classical’ style music right through to contemporary industrial beats. The unlikely pairing of contemporary darker sounds with the sensual elegance and precise technique of fusion style belly dance has earned her praise from reviewers, one punter commenting: ‘the most accomplished and polished performer we’ve had grace our stage, for sheer body control and elegance she’s a hard act to beat.'(Adam Gould, Night Voices 2011).

Kalikah regularly attends workshops by local, interstate and international performers in varying styles to extend her technique and hone her skills. Some of her biggest influences include those she has been fortunate enough to train with – Ashley Lopez, Rachel Brice, Sashi, Acushla, Aradia & Sian Bhala.

What makes me unique to any other bellydancer in your area? 

I have a completely unique look & aesthetic to any other dancer in Australia. I am commonly known within the Australian community as a performer who always surprises, presenting performances that are compelling, unexpected yet still accessible and entertaining. I’m known for my exquisite costumes, made by myself by hand, which are irreplaceable and absolutely unique. I have trained with Masters of the art, both classic and contemporary in styling, and have taken my diverse training to develop my own unique fusion style. I generally use contemporary Middle Eastern influenced Western music in my sets, though I can perform to authentic Middle Eastern music at request.

What do other clients say? 

The most common comment I receive from audience members and clients alike is: ‘I have seen lots of bellydance in my time, but NEVER like what you do!’  Punters are often astonished that you can in fact combine music and styling outside of what’s considered ‘traditional’ bellydance, to be entertained on an entirely different level! 

What happens when you book Kalikah? 

Once you have picked out your performance package, you will be required to pay a nonrefundable deposit of 20% to confirm the booking. Once this payment has cleared I will be in touch via email to discuss your requirements – this involves confirming any themes for the event, and choosing which prop(s) you’d like me to use in the performance.

When we have finalized choices I will send through an invoice for the remainder of the amount due 2 weeks before the event, detailing exactly the acts/themes we agreed upon.

At the event I will arrive 15-20 minutes early to change/prep my costume and props and warm up. Once I have finished my set and refreshed myself, I will stay back and socialize with your guests for up to 20 minutes after, for photo opportunities. I usually carry business cards and am happy to leave some with the host for any enquiries or feedback. So potentially I may be present at the event for 1-1.5 hours depending on the requirements.

My performance fee is a reflection of my experience, years of training, and also covers time & costs for stage makeup, rehearsals, costuming, music and travel time within 30 min of the Adelaide CBD. If you wish options outside of my standard prices I can tailor a package to suit your budget and requirements.
