Mercury is retrograde – thanks, pal! – and I´m taking this last ride to bring out the best revised and updated book possible. The second edition of “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” is almost out there, available for sale around the world. Keep tuned. Meanwhile, enjoy a bit of the Magic:

“Egypt shaped me – as a dancer and as a WOMAN – but it didn´t do it alone. Half of the credit is mine, thank you very much. Going to Egypt or working there, as a dancer, is not enough to make you a great, knowledgeable artist. Egypt doesn´t give talent to the talentless or character to the boneless; it doesn´t drop pearls on your hands – you have to fight for them, unearth them from unpleasant grounds; it doesn´t turn a shallow, blind person into an intelligent, insightful one.

You can spend decades there without ever getting The Point. For some, a landspace is only a landscape; for others, it´s a gate to Wisdom. It depends on the viewer; it depends on the conquerer and the purpose of her/his journey. Mind you: Egypt is not a QUALITY stamp. At all. It can actually destroy you and your love for the dance. Many have succeeded there through the bed and the gutter, not through their personal and artistic qualities. Plus: you can go through fire without getting burnt/transforming yourself; you can be closed to the lessons offered. Nothing is easily given in Egypt – you have to earn it. Or not.”
