Belly Dancing By Bonita
Dance School in Alexandria, VA
From the Author: I wrote the following speech to introduce my Christmas show to the Alexandria Branch of the American Association of University Women. Often when I dance for charities, the groups are interested in a short background history. Once in the early days of my career, I witnessed a negative reaction when I danced for some women who had preconceived notions about Middle Eastern Dancers. Since then, I have made it a individual crusade to educate the public on every possible occasion about the origins of our dance and to gently combat misconceptions.
