"After turning the music on, my new teacher turned towards us and began to dance. As she danced, she played a rhythm on a pair of finger cymbals, and they rang quickly and effortlessly. Her hips shimmied as she moved around the room smiling at us, her students, performing for us from her heart and showing us what we had to look forward to learning.
I was completely transfixed as well as transported. I felt entranced by her music and by her movements and felt a deep sense of recognition even though this was the first time I'd ever seen a belly dancer, ever heard such sounds, seen such a costume, or such movements. I felt a welling of emotion and felt like I had come home, like everything in my life had led to this moment. It was almost a sense of déjà vu, but more of an inner knowing that I'd found something I didn't even know I was looking for." --From Dances with Veils
