Adrian Lira is a beautiful belly dancer from Brazil. Her beautiful big eyes make her look quite Arab!
She's a master of veil. The girl could move that veil like no one I've seen and her photo shoots with the veils are amazing! She always look relaxed with an eye and body focus yet the veil loooks mesmurizing!

The tremendous physical mastery of a 21st century dancer undoubtedly rivals that of an athlete, but the importance and significance of nutrition could not be any more different. However, merely likening the strength, Agility and physicality of a dancer to that of an athlete overlooks the very nature of dance, embodying the vigour and sublime beauty of the dancer's physique as a visual expression of art. The author trained as a professional dancer, and is thus fully aware of the extraordinary demands placed on students and professional dancers.
As a nutritionist, she now recognises that so many talented dancers forfeit their health, their skill and ultimately their career solely because they are unaware of the importance behind good nutrition. The misconception that health be surrendered for the lean silhouette has emanated in dance schools and professional companies around the world. Dance scientists today know this does not have to be the case. Nutrition for the Dancer is a complete guide to nutrition. From calculating individual calorie requirements, reducing body fat, performance preparation, nutrition for a young dancer, recovery from injury, recipes and stock cupboard ideas, this book provides invaluable snippets of advice to dancers.
We have been paying tribute to some beautiful Brazilian dancers lately and here is another beautiful one: Aisha Latifah
Aisha's hot red photo shoot here is gorgeous and we love the flying shots and poses. The skirt is fun and perfect for jumping and Aisha pulled it off beautifully.
Our favorite one!
First documentary in Europe about the importance and beauty of belly dance and the struggle dancers have to face in order to keep their art alive.
Shoot in beautiful locations in Italy and Tunis and directed by Maria Strova, master teacher, actress and writer of " The Secret Language of Belly Dance".
Icon of this journey is Sheherazade,
The intelligent and courageous storyteller from the Thousand and One Nights, that with her imagination defeated ignorance and dead.
Her story inspires a original type of belly dance, with unexpected choreographies as:
Lyrical VeilDance and Lyrical BellyDance, Latin BellyDance, Tribal Fusion e Belly Dance during pregnancy.

I would like to take a moment and respond to comments that I received on an old video I posted called "Belly Talk: Response to the article "Why I can't stand white belly dancers"
In this video, I was responding to an article with the title "Why I can't stand white bellydancers" but many of you thought that it was my opinion!

As a dancer, not only finding the right shade of makeup is a big challenge but finding the right makeup that won't melt while you are sweating on stage! This is even much more important during the summer time when many dancers perform outdoor.
So I would like to share some of my favorites that proved to work throughout the years. So they are tried and true!
Hope you find this helpful If you have other suggestions, please share :)
