Damon the Gypsy. It's a name that makes the hair on the back of a record collector's neck stand up. His original album, "Song of a Gypsy" (listed in "Goldmine Price Guide to Collectible Record Albums" at a value of $3,000.00), is probably the most coveted of the most coveted objects in vinyl.

Belly Dancer of the Universe Competitions 2006
I have just returned from my duties as a judge/workshop instructor and performer in the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competitions. It has been a great success for our Arizona belly dancers for this year of 2006 as it was in the year 2004. Ava Fleming (AZ) in 2004 was the Egyptian Champion and Congeniality Award and People's Choice Award winner. Habib (AZ) 2004 was the Fusion Champion and Peoples Choice Award winner. Diosa (AZ) 2004 in Fusion was 1st Runner-Up. For the Universal category 2004 Habib was 3rd Runner-Up and People's Choice Award winner)

The 2006 winners: bellydanceroftheuniverse.com/bduc2006/bduc2006-contestants.htm
Again we have made Arizona proud this year 2006. Quite a few Arizona dancers entered the competitions. Carrie Konyha of Sedona (Fusion) Myryka of Scottsdale (Fusion). Some of my students watched the Fusion category while I was teaching my workshops and told me that both Carrie and Myryka were great. Troupe dancers named "Mystique Oriental Dancers" (Alexia, Laura, Pamela, Azita and Michelina all of Bacchanal) danced in the Adult Group Competition. I watched that competition and they were amazing. They interacted with each other and made their troupe dance very exciting. My protégé Christina Karras of Phoenix looked beautiful as always. Her dance technique was very unique and fluid. My protégé Katayna of Scottsdale was the ultimate universal dancer. She did better than ever and looked like a goddess. (I have to brag, I feel so proud of my protégés). Katayna was wearing a beautiful lilac costume, beautifully beaded by the late Joyce Daniels who was also Katayna's instructor. I feel that Joyce was somewhere up in heaven watching and looking out for her.
All did a great job. We can be proud of all of them. Congratulations to all of our Arizona dancers who entered the competitions. You were great!
Special Congratulations to the ones who won awards this year 2006
Katayna is the Champion of the Universal category (I think this is the most difficult category because the contestants had to dance to 4/4, 6/8 and 9/8 rhythms and they had to play finger cymbals in some part of the routine. Also the four who were chosen to be in the preliminaries had to dance to live music).
Christina Karras won the Congeniality Award for the Universal category
Myryka won the Peoples Choice Award & the Congeniality Award for the Fusion category
All the competitors from all the states and countries were amazing. It was difficult to judge one above the other. The ones who won first place, won by a close margin I’m sure.
It was a great experience for all of us. Special thanks to all my students/friends who were able to join us in our adventure and lend their support (Pamela and her husband Paul, Joumana, Shawna, Kathi, Sarabeth and Janine.
A big THANK YOU! to Tonya and Atlantis for working so hard to make the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competition such a success and a memorable event for me.
