Note: "A number of people have asked how they can obtain the video of Dallal's 'Bellydance' show. I asked Dallal about this and she said that the TV Cable Channel is not certain that they will make the video available. If you could send email if you have an interest, Dallal will take this into the station when she meets to discuss the possibility. Knowing Dallal as I do, it is certain to be an interesting an informative series. It would be a shame to have it's availability confined to the Miami, Florida area. If you want to know a bit of Dallal's background check out her web site: (above). Send e-mail to marquit@dcfreenet.seflin.lib.fl.us I will pass your letters on to Dallal." --Dr. Liz Marquit
