Sadie Belly Dance
” Wow! What an amazing display of the grace and muscular control that belly dancers are known for. She must’ve practiced hard for this one.” “Anyone can shimmy, but to have this amount of skill and precision shows someone who is mastering the craft. Beautiful to watch and the costume is gorgeous, accentuating all her movements this shows that belly dancing is not about cheap sexual crudeness, but rather it is a form of dance ART and a learned SKILL”
