Realizing a dream – hard work paid off!

20 years ago this month I walked into my first belly dance class. Read my article below celebrating a few of those who inspired me along the way.

Aziza Nawal’s Megeance at Nicola’s

A “Megeance” is the name used to refer to an oriental dancer’s opening routine. It is also sometimes referred to as a “mis en scene”  which translates to “taking the stage”. The music is typically composed for the dancer and features multiple rhythm changes. Safaa Farid is the leader of a fantastic orchestra in Egypt and has played for many top dancers including his wife, Leila. They have produced several wonderful recordings and I chose two selections for the showcase on April 13th at Nicola’s Restaurant. Enjoy!
