Episode 45: Jessica Bellydance

9:35 AM Edit This 3 Comments »
If you like people who tell it like it is then you'll love this episode's guest: Jessica Bellydance!! She's known in the Central Florida area for hosting charity events and being awesome, and soon you'll find her in Portland, OR...because she's moving! (Muy triste!!) During our chat with Jessica she shared her outlook on dance and life, many words of wisdom, and her dance plans for the future! Mary struggles to stay awake on very little sleep (which is the ONLY reason my words were slurring by the end!) and Tammy regales us with a list of awesome up-coming events!
