I started bellydancing in 2000 after watching a movie that featured not bellydance, but Indian/Hindi dance. I began to research dance online and stumbled across the catch-all phrase of bellydance, or belly dance, or Raqs Sharki, or Oriental Dance, or whatever you'd like to call it, (no one's keeping track right?) And as they say, "The rest is history." I have studied with many teachers and many styles, but I prefer to be called an "American-style" bellydancer. I am NOT an expert in any bellydance related subject, and I always try to respect each style and the scholars thereof in their pursuit of accuracy. Summed up, bellydance makes me happy in all of its many forms. View my Blogger profile here.
Here is some super facinating Naima trivia:
And now bonus pics I took while playing around with my camera settings. I call this, "Things Naima sees everyday."
My little helper, Sanchez (AKA Beebin)
My other helper, Rupert
A lunch of tasty ramen on my work desk.
I decided I was no longer in the mood for ramen and fixed Cocoa Pebbles instead.
The stacks of CDs on my work desk for my listening pleasure. Front stack is BD music, the back stack is "other".
The refridgerator, a temple for all things tasty.A catnip plant on the window sill in the kitchen. Helpers get treats!
I hope you enjoyed this random tour into Naima-land. I am off to bed.
