" Although every dance has meant something
special to me, belly dancing is like the dance of the soul. With little effort
you become one with the dance. It is fluid, relaxing, spiritual, soothing,
energizing and much more. I feel as though a part of me has been born that I
never knew existed. It speaks to me in a very spiritual way, it somehow
completes my being, and I feel at peace when I'm dancing."
Anais began dancing with a dance troupe at the age of 19, studying Ballet, Jazz, Modern and Spanish.
She has danced and sung in
performances such as Pineapple Paul, Earth Beat, Show Boat, Cinderella, The Swan
Princess, The Toymaker Ballet, and dozens of others. In her mid twenties, she
began a love affair with Ballroom Dancing. She and her dance partner have
participated in elementary school programs, performed in exhibitions in Maine
and New Hampshire, as well as being featured on a national dance instruction
video. The one dance she always wanted to try was Belly Dance.
Finally, quite by accident, she discovered the Desert Dancers, and again fell in
love with yet another dance.
