You have to watch this to believe it. This little 5 year old girl is so good at belly dancing that its hard to put it in words. If you are a fan of this type of dance, you will certainly enjoy it. it is probably not recommended for young kids to follow her example, given that she does seem to look older than her age – but hey, if you can be that good at this difficult art form, then all power to you! I wish I could have half that flexibility, stance, and control over the body.
Music and dance can be so liberating. It's a shame that not enough people in our culture (and esp. my family) are given a chance to indulge further in the arts. At least poetry and literature? May be my children will have better opportunities (esp. if Lama has her way)!
