We thank you all for competing at Bellydancer of the Universe® 27. You are all stars of the universe. We hope to see you next year in Orange County at the Orange County Business Expo Center, 15 minutes from Disneyland and the Orange County airport. 

"Dear Tonya and Atlantis!

I'm still so excited after your event that I even don't know how to describe it.
It was the most challenging and prestigious competition I have ever participated in. I remember how much time I've spent with the preparations and how many nights I couldn't sleep because of thinking about it and it's so great feeling when I realise now how good it went.

I'm still collecting pictures and videos to make a final post on Facebook and everywhere ;), to write about my impressions as I think that every belly dancer should take part in your event.

I've been participating in many, many competition but this one was definitely the most challenging one. I believe that competitions are to make us better dancers, no matter which place we get, it is always making us better and stronger even if sometimes we don't realise it, being upset by the results.

I like that when organisers make the competition for professional belly dancers, they let them improvise to the music they don't know. During your competition dancers can show everything- the music and choreography they have chosen, the choreography they've prepared to the music you've chosen and a dance to the unknown, live music. So at the end judges get a full picture of dancers and dancers- a real challenge :)

I was touched by the atmosphere of your event- I could realy feel that I was taking part in something really important, in a great, prestigious event.

I was also impresed by the judges attitude. The way they were looking at us was making me feel like they do expect to see a good dance, something worthy to watch and judge. They were unsmiling what, in my opinion, tell of their professionalism. It wasn't easy to dance in front of them but I think that it has also made me dance better.
I also think that the variety of choices of categories make this competition something for everyone

Many girls were asking me about the designer category and everyone said that it was a nice idea with adding it. And I absolutely agree with it as well :)

And my completely personal opinion about you and Tonya- you are soooo perfect example of warm and professional persons, it is so emotional and so beautiful. I'm simply happy that I could meet you in person, it was really inspiring :)

"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
