When I first started talking about belly dancing with my family (they still follow a traditional style from the 1950’s in Japan), my mother said that she saw a lot more people doing belly dancing now because of social media. I did not think that people were starting to engage in the act, so it’s really something to look forward to.

When I first started my career, I was a musician and used to DJ occasionally. I was at a very high level of music and DJ skills. I decided that I wanted to work with the rhythm and dynamics of the beat in an artistic way. That was kind of an eye opener for me, but I didn’t really get involved.
