Belly Dancing

“This is my second time performing in Japan and I hope it’s not the last. I really enjoy dancing for the audience here; they’re so enthusiastic. I fell in love with Japan for the first time when I came to Fukuoka as a student from Uzbekistan. After that, I studied in Tokyo, where my fascination with Japan grew even more. Then I moved to New York City, where I became a professional belly dancer and a yoga teacher. Coming back to Japan, I realize that I still love Japan as much as I did before. But now, having traveled and experienced more, I have an even deeper appreciation of Japan. I would love to stay in Tokyo longer, teach belly dance and yoga, and perform in shows like this one.”
