Ana, Belly Dancer, with SwordAna was born in Sinaloa, Mexico, under the “moon” sign of Cancer, in the middle of July. Her loving father used to carry her in his arms when she was a baby, walk her outside in the warm evening and sing to her under the tropical moon. Her first word was “Luna” which means moon in English. Ever since then, Ana has been in love with the moon.

Ana comes from a musical family. Her father taught himself to play the guitar when he was a boy, so the love of music runs in the family. Her mother used to dance the “mambo” and entertained her aunts, cousins and uncles by dancing on tabletops. Her mother still dances at various functions with Ana’s Mirage. Ana has been dancing & performing since she can remember. She and her sister used to dance to rock & roll music at family gatherings, delighting the adults.

The girls were naturals at performing. At one time all three sisters, Ana, Blanca & Monica were belly dancing. Blanca dances with Ana’s Mirage group. Ana then started taking professional dance lessons in Tap dance, followed by Cheerleading in High School, Mexican Folklorico dance, Jazz dance and finally settled into Belly Dancing.

Ana Bellydancer San Diego CAHer other dance talents include swing dance, salsa dance, and Mexican “cumbia” dancing. Her greatest love and accomplishment in dance has been Raks Sharki “Belly Dance”. She can thank her sister for “daring” her to take belly-dance lessons. She had her introduction to belly dancing from a wonderful lady by the name of Francie who taught in a recreation center in National City. Francie told Ana and Blanca that they were “naturals”.

From there, Ana took dance lessons with “Kishma” Rose Fedak of Spring Valley, master of the double-sword and intricate veil dance. Kishma helped Ana develop further and give her the “edge” she needed. Soon thereafter, (six months later) Ana was hired to dance at the Seven Veils Restaurant in Mission Valley. (I can only wonder how I looked!)

From there came Call-a-Gram bellygrams, and LiveWires bellygrams. Next, she danced at Athens Market Restaurant downtown San Diego, followed by El Griego Restaurant in Tijuana’s Plaza Rio, Crete Isle Café in Oceanside, Sinbad’s in El Cajon, and was a guest dancer at Troy’s Greek , Georgia’s and the legendary Hajji Baba’s Restaurant.

Ana with Isis WingsShe has also danced in Ensenada Mexico at San Nicolas Hotel for the Newport/Ensenada Regatta, and was a dancer at “El Griego” Restaurant in Tijuana Mexico, and performed at Tijuana’s Channel 12 Juan Luis Curiel Show. (does this qualify as “international” dancer?) Currently she performs in the Southern California and Northern-Baja California areas. Ana is fluent in two languages, Spanish and English. She is director of Ana’s Mirage Dancers and formed the group about 4 years ago.

Ana’s “Mirage” Dancers have performed and delighted the audiences at the famous San Diego StreetScene Festival, Del Mar Fair, Santa Sophia Festival, Multiple Sclerosis Society Walk Fundraiser, St. Jude’s Festival, Holy Spirit Festival, and Blessed Sacrament Festival, and many convalescent homes and elementary schools in the San Diego County area. She has performed for the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District’s AM-PM Program and annual retirement party for the district. Ana enjoys her dancing as much as her audience enjoys her dancing. As she dances, she mesmerizes her audience. Her audience drifts out into an oasis in the desert, where one can see the moonlight and camels at rest, while the exotic melodies caress the senses and a belly dancer undulates and shimmies in perfect unison to the music.

Highly organized, she juggles her time between entertaining at parties and restaurants, riding the Harley and enjoying her family.

Belly Dancer Sketch Card

Some of you may be aware that I have been doing lots of Art and Art related projects over the past few years. In fact, I now sign my name Penny StewArt!

I recently painted 25 sketch cards of belly dancers, 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. They are very collectible and make great gifts.

They are also called ATC or Artist Trading Cards, or ACEO if they are sold instead of traded. I have some left, so please visit my Daily PaintWorks gallery if you are interested in purchasing them at a very reasonable price. Thanks.
