Found Again: "On Bellydance"


An excellent video on bellydance & Suhaila Salimpour: Samantha Hasthorpe, Suhaila Salimpour, Jamila Salimpour, Margaret Cho, Kendra, Isabella, music, dance, makeup, community, and how the dance effects people, what motivates them... On having a "safe and supportive environment to grow."

"When you go see a belly dance show, if you look around, a lot of the women are crying. Tears for a million different reasons. Because they can’t believe how beautiful the dancer is, and because that beauty is something reachable, accessible, not distant and elusive. Because we have all wasted so many years hating ourselves for how we look and not appreciating ourselves for what we can do." - Margaret Cho
