Trophy Sponsors 2002: We are most grateful to our wonderful Sponsors, Mr. Harry Saroyan of Saroyan Manufacturing, PO Box 2056, Riverside, CA 92516, and Mr. Ralph Karapetian of All Star Tire Company, 2735 E. Artesia Blvd, Long Beach, Ca 90805. We are honored and proud to have such fine gentlemen as our associates in this competition and thank them deeply for their love and support.

Update 2001: "Blessings to All! Happy New Year - Once again our commitment to you is to ensure that the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competition continues to be the Ultimate learning and pleasurable experience for all. We are always looking for new ways to make it more special. We invite you all to attend our famous Original Belly Dance Showcase, where very Wednesday evening a variety of Mid-East events of the highest caliber take place.

Atlantis was very pleased to once again be voted President of MECDA's Beach Cities Chapter. Her busy year also featured her dancing on KCAL's Post Game Football Sports Recap. Ch 9's TV program "To Tell the Truth" also honored her with a special segment for being one of the most highly award winning Belly Dancers in the country, and TV's CH 7 caught her performing for Sharon Stone's favorite charity, The Hope Ball. Atlantis continues to perform and book entertainment through her company, Belly Dancers of the Universe, at some of the finest hotels and events in the Southern California area.

My classes at the various colleges and privately have doubled, as belly dancing continues to thrive. My passion is working as a Practitioner at the Seal Beach church of Religious Science and working the World Ministry of Prayer phone lines. This year we sent our annual donation to the Equus Rescue and Sanctuary, PO Box 3273, Glendale, CA 91221, 818-768-3469, for the care and upkeep of our five rescued horses. All donations are deeply appreciated. Please help them. Atlantis and I will be in Florida teaching Master classes and performing in April 2002. We'd love to see you!

Love, Peace and Blessings." Tonya.
