  • Diamonds in the Rough & Polished Perfection, 2012 Berlin SomerFestival-Thursday Competition,
    Produced by Beata and Horacio Cifuentes, Held in September, 2012. The costumes were innovative and personalized with many of the competitors from the Ukraine, Russia, and Asia. Many of whom are also ballroom competitors. As a result, the costumes were visually striking and elegant. The trend in costuming is floral with tribal going towards more colorful stylized burlesque (ala Chicago musical).

  • Carnival of Stars, Page 4: O-Z Photos
    The Carnival of Stars Festival is produced by Pepper Alexandria and Latifa at the Richmond Auditorium each year at the beginning of August. The stage at this facility is hard to beat.

  • The One-of-a-kind Costume Still Fascinates:Re-envision, Recycle, Renew, and Remember
    Sometimes, perhaps more often than not, those people whom we love, and those things that we enjoy doing, introduce new facets into our lives that change our perspective of what becomes important to us in the long run.
  • A Special Meeting in Barcelona, Munique Brings Wael Mansour for a Workshop and Show
    At Academia de Danza del Vientre Munique Neith  on 29th  and 30th of September 2012, two workshops took place with Munique Neith (the sponsor), Wael Mansour and young talents of Oriental dance from Spain, Italy, Portugal and France.  Tradition and modernity merged together on this warm weekend.
  • What Lies Beneath Part 2, The Morocco Tourists Don’t See, Suspicion, Lifestyle, Wedding, & Rescue
    What’s depressing about Laayoune is the idea of it: what it represents, not the city itself. Buildings, painted in salmon color like Marrakech, palm trees planted in pretty town squares, clean streets, restaurants and cafes, busy market places and a gorgeous plaza where people stroll at night. If you didn’t know any better, you would love this place! In reality, you are inside an enormous military base, while the city is a mere facade.
  • Does Your Teacher Have Your Best Interest at Heart?
    Remember that you are your own person and you can use your talents any way you want. Nobody owns anybody else. And nobody owns Belly Dance. Belly Dance is an exciting world that gives women and men many artistic and entrepreneurial opportunities.
  • Emotion Inspired by Song, Interpreting Arabic Orchestral Music
    What’s most important is the feeling. Listen to lots of music, and let yourself be moved. Even if you don’t know the words, you can still access the feelings. When you get on stage, express these feelings honestly to the audience. They will love you for it.
  • Everyone’s Uncle, In Celebration of the Life of Drummer Armando Mafufo
    In fact, so many artists wanted to perform in his honor that many had to be turned down or else we might have had to stay all night.
  • Make New Friends & Keep the Old, Response: A Dance Perspective for Today
    After living in the Middle East for 25 years and continuing to work in the region for music and dance, I have a pretty good idea of what talent and creative ideas exist in the region.
  • The Evolution of Jillina, An Interview Regarding Change, Flexibility and Lessons Learned
    Working with Jillina for the last six years or so, I’ve been a fly on the wall for a lot of this transition. I’ve been there for marathon rehearsal weeks, brainstorming sessions, the stress of taking a show on the road, the flops, and the standing ovations.
  • Have I Left Yet? Queen of Denial, Chapter 12
    Baghdad was the first place I had worked in where a complete communication blackout was ordered (no post, no newspapers, no telegrams, and no telephone access to the general public), and a mere two weeks after my arrival. For the very first time since I started traveling and dancing abroad, I was unable to call my parents (and vice versa) to assure them that I was fine regardless of what they were reading in the local newspapers.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful, large, and varied collection of photos from Carnival of the Stars! I enjoyed looking at all of it and some of the photos are simply stunning. Great job on the quality of all of them. It is great to see such a variety of stars. Thanks again for bringing some of the magic to us.
