    Raja: Journey Into Rhythm

    Does anyone know where I can get this CD? Dahlal Intl used to have it, not listed amongst available offerings presently. Audrena used to have it, clicked on the Audrena website and it jumped to the Chinese amazon of Alibaba. Tried again and not sure where it went, do you know if Audrena sold...

    Anyone know more about this teacher?

    Slight change of subject. Does anyone remember Juliana from Florida from the 1970s? She was a jazz dancer from NY, she and her husband did a flamenco act on a cruise ship, then she learned a few moves and got into belly dancing. It was her fabulous body that was on the album covers of George...

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    I don't know what year this happened, but there has been a lot of bigotry in the past 15 years, which unfortunately is getting institutionalized and impacting arts and cultural activities. Some parents react to cultural appreciation such as that mentioned above, as if it were a possible attempt...

    Anyone know more about this teacher?

    I did not know the rest of Aida's name. I'm sure that must be the same one. And no, I never knew Schehera or even heard of her. I did take a private lesson in Cincinnati in my hotel room with a lady who was a student of Bobby's after her local teacher left, but her stage name was not...

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    No, bc the embezzler had destroyed a lot of the records but what was left was clearly embezzlement. She did an incomplete job of covering her tracks after making off with I don't know how many hundreds of dollars, probably close to $1,000. However -- a man she was having an extramarital affair...

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    That is minor compared to what some of these ppl can do to you in person. My dance school got embezzled after the embezzler and her partner in crime worked behind my back for several months to steal my class students for private lessons with them - while they were on my payroll and after I paid...

    Anyone know more about this teacher?

    Authenticity discussion: I was teaching Serena Technique of belly dance which had Greek / Turkish heritage, in 1975-77. I had an Iranian student who went home to Teheran to visit her family. While she was there, they pressed her to dance for them bc they had heard she was taking lessons in...

    Kamaal's double veil video...

    I have finally figured out that what was called French nylon back in the day, is now called iridescent organza nylon. Beautiful fabric, changes colors, great for veil work. Hope this helps.

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    This reminds me of when I was running Carolyn's School of Middle Eastern Dance in Columbia, MO from 1975-77. (1) The young lady who asked if learning this dance would help her "sex off" her husband. I replied that I was a dance teacher, not a therapist, and that maybe they needed to try...
