After a lifetime of thinking she couldn't draw her way out
of a paper bag (thanks to some unfortunate input by a nasty art
teacher in middle school), Shira has finally let her wonderful
husband convince her that maybe her doodles do deserve to see
the light of day--or at least the light of your computer monitor!
Shira first started learning Middle Eastern dance in 1981.
Dance has been her inspiration, her creative outlet, her avenue
to making friends in a new community after relocating, and her
escape from her "day job" of being a professional Silicon
Valley computer nerd.
Shira is your hostess, the webmistress of this award-winning
web site, The Art Of Middle Eastern Dance.
