Belly Dancers will provide a spectacular show at your event! ONYX, founded and directed by Alexandra King, is Santa Barbara's only professional Belly Dance Company. The dancers backgrounds and resumes reflect their training and professional experience. We use recorded music, but, can work with live musicians, for an extra fee.

The dancers are also able to teach. Cost per dancer ranges from $300.00- $500.00/dancer for up to two hours. Time on site beyond two hours is $100.00/hour per dancer.
The Alexandra King Dance Ensemble repertoire include all styles of Belly Dance, (Tribal, Cabaret, Gypsy and World Fusion styles), as well as Fire Dances, Veil, Sword and Stick dances. We work as Soloists, Duets, Trios and Ensembles of four or more.
