On this episode of YIP we meet the fabulous Maria Gimmeshimmy!! Avidly interested in dancing with snakes and being covered in body paint, she's also a mom, a photographer, a musician's muse, and a working bellydance artist. (She also has a very sweet radio voice, just wait and see...well, listen...) We'll also talk super briefly about: an upcoming one woman bellydance show (more on that in a few episodes), funny stuff tribal dancers say, and how successful Mary was at stalking some YIP listeners! So don't touch that dial!!!
