August 2, 2007Rafiqa is my *FAVORITE* Rafiqa ... she's a good woman, inside and out. She's one of the only people I know who really does have the best intentions, in pretty much all cases and situations. When I first met Rafiqa, I remember she was actually talking about some dance related history, and that she actually knew what she was talking about. And, when you can learn something from someone, standing around in a hallway of some dance event, I think they're worth keeping around. Good stuff, she is.... I love her lots :)
October 23, 2005I want to say that Rafiqa is a sweetheart. I saw her perform once in Buffalo NY during a workshop show. I remember her beautiful red dress and her cane dance. I had the pleasure of spending a few days with her recently. She is a beautiful dancer and I so much enjoyed having her around and talking with her. She's kind and sweet. I look forward to seeing her again in the future. Her husband is one lucky guy :)
July 8, 2005I just absolutely adore Rafiqa!
her high energy, loving heart and beautiful dance make me happy to call her my dear friend! her Saiidi dance is a dance of the inner spirit, she truly dances from the heart!

Be warned -- a couple of these videos are very disturbing and very graphic but educational. "Mrs. Paisley" isn't graphic, but no less impactful. To think people find this entertaining makes me sick.
Now I am going to shower some lovin' on Daphne.

I've never met Babarah -- she was one of the first bellydancers in Rochester, back in the 70's. Several dancers in our area got their start with her. She's in Arizona now, but is coming to NY to visit friends and family. She's teaching a workshop on June 30. Here's the information:Sun, June 3, 2007 - 6:02 PM permalink - 7 comments

Is there a way to save a post you want to refer to later without remembering where/when? Bookmarks don't seem to do it. I want a "favorites" kind of place. I suppose I could send messages to myself, but that seems a bit cumbersome.
