and 

it was important for us,

the americans,

to proudly represent our country

with our own

unique

belly dance act.

it was truly

a night to remember.

“every performance is different. that’s the beauty of it.”

  1. I love the idea of bringing people together for a fun night of music and dancing. One of my father’s friends gave him a VHS tape called “The Art of Bellydancing,” as a joke. Excuse me while I call a few friends to invite them over for a seisiun!
