Natasha was introduced to belly dancing at the Sheikh’s
Palace Lebanese Restaurant after going there for dinner,
and was spellbound at the beauty and mystery of the
dance. She began taking lessons soon after.
Being a belly dance performer allows her to express her
creativity and femininity. It challenges her from a
physical perspective, and enables her to entertain and be
entertained by people.
