I LOVE Mesmera! Belly Dance Star of Stage, Screen, Movies & Beyond!
One of the most creative performers in the world! Always exciting, always evolving, always MESMERISING!
I remember watching her on a long time ago on FAME as the belly dancer doing the bellygram, that was back in 1982. I also loved watching her on Mama’s Family belly dancing in an episode from 1990. It is so cool that Mesmera was able to belly dance on so many of my other favorite shows including Hill Street Blues, Gimme a Break, etc. She really brought Belly Dance to the masses.
It was an honor to meet her in person when I sponsored her in a workshop in my hometown, along with Live Music provided by Raja and John Bilezikjian. I still have her Video tape, Dance of the Serpent, it is one of my all-time favorite belly dance videos!
The one thing I LOVE most about Mesmera is that she told me who made one of her belly dance capes. And that was so sweet and honest because I have met so many dancers who are reluctant to share any, information that might give you an edge. Not Mesmera, she is totally sweet, down to earth and can dance like nobody’s business.

I will be posting some of my original Dancer Tributes in WordPress, only the early ones that were in Twitter only, not WordPress. Back when I first starting posting the dancer tributes on Twitter I only had 2 subscribers. Now that I have more, I realized that a lot of people missed my early dancer tributes. But as I am reposting those, I will also keep adding new content for topics like Dance Choreography, new Dancer tributes, etc.
Now is your time to Join the Conversation! Comments, Questions, concerns, tributes are all welcome!
What is your favorite dance by Mesmera?
