Dear Tonya and Atlantis,
The 13th Annual Bellydancer of the UniverseŽ Competition
was spectacular as usual. This was Cinnamon Caravan's third competition and we
enjoyed it just as much as the other two. The judge's comments about our dance
performance were encouraging and fulfilling.
Our favorite part of the competition
is getting to know the other contestants, and this year was no different. We treasure
the long time friendships we have made through this event.
It was the first
year that Sidra (12 years) competed as a soloist in the junior category. She learned
a great deal in developing her choreography and style. She has hung her medal
on the living room wall for all to see and admire.
The shopping is always
great at BDUC. Some of our favorites are Artemis Imports, Diamond Pyramid and
Babylon Breeze's Sultanhamet Fashions, however we managed to spend money at just
about each vender there.
Once again, we will look back with fond memories
of our experience at the Bellydancer of the UniverseŽ Competition.
Cinnamon Caravan: Jeanie, Suaad, Nailah and Sidra
