"If you`re having a Bellydance Festival or Competition, ATLANTIS MUST BE PART OF IT. She is SO PROFESSIONAL with an exceptional class about how to improve in a contest with so important tips she is expert and another class of finger cymbals that I believe is one of her specialities. Her dancing is so unique!!! Nowdays with so many dancers in the world (all doing the same and many without personal style) you need to have someone special like SPECTACULAR and CREATIVE ATLANTIS!!!! People here in MEXICO loved her!!!! Thank you Atlantis for being here, it was a faboulous weekend!" -- Maria Shazadi, Mexico City Producer

Dear Tonya, Atlantis and Vince,

I wish to thank you for attending the benefest last Sunday in Temecula on my behalf. Thank you for MC-ing Tonya, thank you for dancing Atlantis and thank you for your moral support Vince. I am so sorry it was so cold that afternoon and sorry for what you had to endure in order to be there. I know Sabrina and Lady Brenda meant well and after all they would never have known it was going to be that cold and windy. You and your family have been dear friends to me for years. I am deeply touched by all that you do and continue to do for me. May you continue on your dance journey for many years yet to come and may you continue to bring joy to the masses of people that love and admire you. Most of all ME! God Bless you all.

Sincerely, John Bilezikjian
Dantz Records
