Samara P1 and P2 (pink)

This is bellydancer Samara in pink harem pants dancing at the Mahrajan Raks Shaqi in Beirut, Lebanon. Samara’s entrance is on horseback, as you can see she doesn’t like it at all and she later said that this is the only time anyone ever got her on a horse.*
As you probably know, Samara was born in Iraq but made her name in Lebanon. She initially took lessons with Nadia Gamal who asked her whether she wanted to learn to dance or whether she only wanted the money.  When Samara replied that she wanted to learn to dance Nadia encouraged her to develop her own personal style.
