Hi Atlantis!!

Iím doing fantastic...on cloud 9!! I hope you and Tonya are recovering well!

I have such a deep respect for BDUC, the format you made, and how hard it is to get through it all to win these categories, wow . . . itís easy to say that this was the hardest thing Iíve ever done in dance. It was worth every second. With that said, thank you so much for everything, I canít say it enough and express how grateful I am. . . my world has changed so much now. I feel like I owe you so much.

Seriously if there is anything I can do to help you out please let me know...I donít want to win and walk away. Iíd like to support in any way youíll let me so talk to me about it and let me know your thoughts! I will definitely be in Vegas, and CSQ in June, and if youíre not tired of me Iíll be in San Francisco too lol! Talk to you soon :)

more TESTIMONIALS / ENDORSEMENTS for Tonya and Atlantis.


It was a joy for me to compete in BDUC SoCal regionals. I got to share the stage with the wonderful local dancers and was lucky to get the 1st runner up award. 

The day before the competition I attended "Get the Creative Edge" workshop taught by Atlantis. The class was very fun and helpful. Atlantis pointed out what I (and all the other dancers in the class) should work on and improve in our technique and style. I loved that the class was very interactive, all of us got to watch each other and we also got detailed feedback from the instructor. The class gave me a self-confidence I needed before the competition. I would totally recommend workshops taught by Atlantis for both professional dancers with years of experience as well as mature dancers who are just in the beginning of their dance path, since the class gives us dancers the inspiration we all need! 

Thank you Atlantis!"  -- Mary W.



Dear Tonya, Atlantis and Vince,

You are a stellar family!  I hope you are all feeling rested and pleased with BDUC 27  It is clear to me and anyone who can see, that you are fabulously experienced and professional and most likely possess magical powers that allow you to succeed against tough challenges. I applaud and thank you again for all the nice gifts, lunch both days, parking and especially the privilege of being on your judges panel .... all but year 1. I truly am eager to being with you in 2018 and look forward to the changes. 

Again, thank you and bless you for your talent, passion and Love as Friends and Dance Family!!!  Love, mz --

Dancing at the Speed of Delight!


"If you`re having a Bellydance Festival or Competition, ATLANTIS MUST BE PART OF IT. She is SO PROFESSIONAL with an exceptional class about how to improve in a contest with so important tips she is expert and another class of finger cymbals that I believe is one of her specialities. Her dancing is so unique!!! Nowdays with so many dancers in the world (all doing the same and many without personal style) you need to have someone special like SPECTACULAR and CREATIVE ATLANTIS!!!! People here in MEXICO loved her!!!! Thank you Atlantis for being here, it was a faboulous weekend!" -- Maria Shazadi, Mexico City Producer


"Atlantis being a very dynamic performer herself brings the same quality into her coaching. Therefore, making every minute of your time count with important information with her vast knowledge in performance, entertainment and competition aspects of belly dancing. She will advise on costuming, prop usage, zil paying, artistic and technical choices of choreography sections all in the meanwhile leaving the final decision to the artist never enforcing her own opinions. Her feedback is clear, straightforward and to the point to make immediate improvements. She will spend time to make sure you drill the choreography or sections of it adequately during your time together with her before taking it on your own. Her fun and care taking personality makes your study a delight and a very valuable capture of new skills." - Nilay Engen


"I have always been proud to have participated in BDUC and know that it was helpful in my career, so THANKS !!!" -- Jillina


"To All.
Atlantis is the best EMCEE and a very good dancer - you should invite her. She will be a great addition to your show!" ---
Dr Samy Farag/ Sphinx Records - Champion of the Universe Sponsor.
