The world of belly dance is broad and deep. I feel that everyone studying belly dance should have an understanding of where it comes from, how it is seen in its home countries and how we can be good ambassadors for the dance. I have spent nearly 30 years not only studying the moves and stagecraft, but also the history, culture and politics of dance. Art is politics. On this page I hope to share some videos and links to help others better understand why I am not only passionate about dancing, but also supporting others who dance.
