Trophy Sponsors 2003: We are most grateful to our wonderful Sponsors, Mr. Harry Saroyan of Saroyan Manufacturing, P. 0. 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 2002

Happy New Year to all! Yes, the blessings continue to flow as our competition is receiving worldwide recognition and we continue to fulfill our commitment to make the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competition the ultimate learning and pleasurable experience. This year we have added the Fusion Category, which allows everyone total expression through Middle Eastern dance.

We dedicate this year's competition to our Father/Grandfather, Louis 0. Belli, who made his transition in September 2002. We miss him so. We thank you so much for your support of all our endeavors and invite you to attend our famous "Original Belly Dance Showcase," now in its 12th year, where every Wednesday evening live music, Belly Dancing and a variety of events of the highest caliber take place.

Atlantis and I are very proud to continue our service to MECDA's Beach Cities Chapter, as President and Vice President. Atlantis continues to perform and book entertainment through her company, Belly Dancers of the Universe, for Papadakis Taverna and the finest hotels and events in the Southern California area.

We both enjoyed a wonderful workshop and show in Miami Shores, Florida and Atlantis will return there once again in April 2003.

My dance classes just keep getting bigger and better. I continue my work as a Practitioner on the phone lines for World Ministry of Prayer and at the Seal Beach Church of Religious Science. Once again we sent our annual donation for care and upkeep of our five rescued horses. If you can help, send donations to the Equus Rescue & Sanctuary, P 0 Box 3273, Glendale, CA 91221, 818-768-3469.

Love & Peace to All, Tonya & Atlantis
