My mom taught me belly dance as a source of empowerment and healing that's been passed down by women in East Africa for generations.
I started teaching belly dance to people of all ages and backgrounds when I was in college, and I dreamed of sharing it with the world—until a bullet stopped me in my tracks. I was shot in the leg with an assault rifle in a random attack at age 21.
My recovery was grueling, my anger was overwhelming, and even though I thought my dancing days were over, it was belly dance — with significant accommodations — that helped me get back on my feet again.
I had been terrified to let myself feel the full extent of my anger because I worried that it would turn me into my shooter. But holding it down was only making it worse, and I realized how dangerous anger could be without finding a safe way to express it. It was belly dance that gave me the outlet and the confidence to face the rage that I had tried for so long to push down.
