I made this documentary a while back and one of the reasons I made it was that people kept asking, 'What is it like being a dancer in the Middle East?'  

The question is short but the answer is terribly long, too long for a quick conversation and too long to write in an email. 
So my goal with this documentary was to cover some of the basic facts in hopes of beginning to answer the vast question of 'What is it like to be a dancer in the Middle East.  Part 1 is an introdution and about logistics, rehearsal, make up and costumes.  In part 2 I go into more details about my show and end with some remarks about my experiences.  Hope you enjoy!
