Belly Dance Off
This photo collection was taken by John Mitchell (stills) and Mark Corliss (video grabs) Martinez. This was a grande finale competition and I competed against Anyelle (who won!) and Carol Bui. You can find more about Suzanna Davis's Belly Dance Off here: www.planetsuzanna.com.
I'm very proud of my performance, especially my oud taqsim. It was played by Maurice Sadak of Alexandria Egypt and the patriarch of the MB Orchestra. My drum solo is pretty cool, but then I have an ungraceful moment at the end. Wait for it. Ha!
The band in the background is the MB Orchestra.
