Update BDUC 2005

Blessings to All! We are so grateful for the great good this competition continues to bring to everyone. It has been recognized worldwide and truly is the ultimate pleasurable learning experience.

We thank you for your support of all our endeavors and invite you to attend our Famous "Original Belly Dance Showcase," now in its 14th year, every Wednesday evening, featuring the finest Belly Dancers, live music, and many fabulous show extravaganzas throughout the year.

Atlantis andI are very proud to serve as MECDA's President and Vice President for the Beach Cities Chapter, promoting events for Humanitarian efforts, most recently contributing to the Tsunami Relief.

My classes all around the Southland are such a joy (see www.tonyaandatlantis.com for schedule) and I pleasure deeply working with my two troupes Of Veils and Incense and Essence of Veils. This was a very busy year for us, with highly acclaimed performances at The Good Shepherd Fundraiser for the homeless and abused; special NBA halftime show at the Long Beach State College Pyramid game between the LA Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs; the Cairo Carnivale at Glendale Civic Auditorium, the MECDA Anniversary Party and the MEGA STARS Show. I also continue my work as a practitioner for World Ministry of Prayer phone lines and at the Seal Beach Church of Religious Science.

Atlantis' year has been most exciting with her company, Belly Dancers of the Universe, providing entertainment for the stars and special events. Hollywood luminaries such as Jerry Bruckheimer and Lawrence Kazden marveled; Coach Phil Jackson of Lakers fame proclaimed Atlantis "His beautiful Baby!" Even USC Coach Pete Carol got up and mamboed about with Atlantis after their championship win against Oklahoma. Geena Davis and Paula Abdul also found time to take a swing of the hips! Also Atlantis landed a great spot on a Good Morning America feature, Spotlight in Long Beach, showing What's Hot in Long Beach! Currently Atlantis is working on her new DVD "Mega Stars of the Universe," featuring Champions of the past 15 years of BDUC.

We continue our support and upkeep for the 5 horses we have rescued from slaughter, through Equus Sanctuary, P.O. Box 3673, Glendale, CA 91221 and hope you will also.

Love & Peace to All,

Tonya and Atlantis
