I LOVE this mini-turban and her beautiful makeup!

SHEBA (Rosanna Ferrera) was a rare gem. There was really no one else like her. Often it’s cliche’ to say that a dancer is “mesmerizing,” but not in this case; the word mesmerizing is inadequate to describe her talent.”

I usually limit my posts to bellydance in America’s past but this is too adorable not to share!
