"I truly enjoyed working with you, a wonderfully seasoned belly dancer, beautiful/exotic young woman! When somebody is as top quality and professional as you are - in every sense of the expression - it's hard to find an alternate."

Stefana, Positive Music Recording Artist & Songwriter


"Everyone enjoyed your performance and thought it was the best they had ever seen. You showed a lot of enthusiasm and of course we all thought you looked fabulous. We highly recommend you and your show to anyone. ”
