Before more time goes by I want to thank you both for honoring my body of work by giving me the Life time achievement award. It means a lot to me and it was a wonderful surprise! I enjoyed the event even more this year because I did not have the added stress of competition and I loved that it was back in the upstairs ballroom. As always, kudos to you both for putting on such a high caliber event. It is a wonderful legacy you have been creating. I look forward to BDUC 2013. Thank you and love to you both.
Sahra Carolee Kent: What a beautiful whirlwind weekend at BDUC! The talent was amazing! All the great dancers and creative ideas are wonderful to watch, but very difficult to judge - so many good dancers. Thank you Tonya and Atlantis Long for all your hard work and dedication!  Love, Sahra
Helena Vlahoss: You are right Sahra, It was amazing! I loved every minute of it. And it really was difficult to judge so many amazing contestants. Tonya and Atlantis Long did it again, making this event the most prestigious competition, Belly Dancer of the Universe (BDUC).
Cassandra Fox: I also wanted to say a big THANK YOU for once again putting together such a wonderful event. It was my second year attending and once again I had a fantastic time. The competitors are all so warm and friendly and your staff and volunteers are asbolutely fantastic. They are helpful, friendly and cheerful. They are in part what makes the event so great. You really have put together an excellent team. I loved the new location in the Promenade ballroom as well. Tonya and Atlantis run a great competition and event. Their effort and experience shows. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
