As a differently-abled bellydancer m'self, I freaking LOVE this. I'm visually impaired, have been bellydancing for a few years now, and have simply been -devoured- by this beautiful, empowering art. If you have any other videos in a similar vein, please, drop them my way! I'd love to feature them (and you) on my blog! (And if you know of anyone else around the country who's combined bellydance w/work w/people who have varying dis/abilities, please, send me a holler about that, too!) This is what my blog is all about- bellydance, and empoowering ALL bodies. ^_^ ♥♥♥

Love, Huge Cheers and Thanks,
Ylluria
