We originally joined the Beledi Dance Company with the goal of performing 3-4 times per year. One year, we had like 12 gigs! It's all what you decide to do as a team, as a group or even as an individual. Sometimes, event planners want the entire dance company to perform a longer show. Others who hire us are fine with just a smaller group dancing to a few songs with no costume changes. Each year, the BDC troupe members will get together and decide upon the schedule in advance in terms of how aggressive we want to be in our performance schedule.
