“Let’s Dance!” is my most commonly-used phrase. You can probably tell that I am the sort who would be the first to make a beeline for the dance floor when I enter a club or party; just like a child drawn to candies. And this passion for dancing has only grown stronger through the years. Bellydance was introduced to me at the tender age of 11 when I watched a documentary about “Oriental Dance” on television. I remembered those dancers on the program not having model-svelte bodies; and, indeed, they were actually very curvy women but yet their movements were so soft, sensual & fluid. I was totally mesmerized by bellydancing and knew it was THE DANCE for me. My fate changed forever when I was studying at the University of Sydney, Australia. It marked the beginning of my Belly Dance journey – a wonderful journey that would lead me to self-discovery and self-expression. My first bellydance course was carried out in a museum-looking function room with no mirrors. We learned bellydance through the eyes of our course mates and, together, discovered a new language – body language with a heart. Through the years, Belly Dance has helped me get in touch with my inner-self and created an outlet for expressing the real me. It unleashed the beauty, grace, joy, feminine energy and creativity that had always been hidden in me. Now, I appreciate and love my body more than ever. I am a BIG girl with lots of curves and proud of it! Belly Dance nourishes my soul and keeps me spiritually, physically and mentally balanced. It has helped me tremendously on the road to recovery after years of crash diets and depression. It is a true wellness program that emphasises both “inner” fitness as much as the outer, physical form. I firmly believe each woman is a unique creation of beauty. I’d like to share my passion and knowledge about this unique dance form with other women so that they too can awaken their inner “Goddess” – just as I have.
