    I had planned to have fire dancers at my wedding as a big surprise for my guests, but was heartbroken to learn that my venue no longer allows them. :(  For me, the fire dancers had that 'wow' factor that will be very hard to duplicate (the LED version doesn't come close). Does anyone have any other ideas?  I was thinking about maybe some acrobats, but not sure the beams in the palapa at the Blue Venado would allow for such a performance...

      Hello Brownsugarbride,

       

      The acrobats are great and the illuminated water drums are also a wonderful option because they can start playing with electric guitars hard rock music and at the end they play the water drums .   There is also the "batukada" singing alive and combined with the drums, they are also amazing! actually they are the most expensive ones of all the performances in the area around 2,500 usd. or more.

       

      Happy Planning!

        Yazmin-

         

        Thanks for the suggestions! I had loved the fire dancers because they combined the African drums with their performance---a perfect way to bring in some of my heritage.  I would have loved to bring in the Brazilian drumming and singing, as I used to do samba dance, but $2000+ is unfortunately not in my budget.  :(

         

        I am wondering if it would be possible to bring in some acrobats who do their routines to African drumming...

          Hi Brownsugarbride,

          There are different packages I guess you can find the batukada in different styles and prices and more like african drumming that brasilian one.  Best Regards,
