Male Belly Dance
Danielle barAbba (DRAKON) has been dancing in the Central Texas area (based in Austin, Texas) for the past 8 years ! He dances "Raks Sharki" and uses a Scimitar sword! He is the producer and star performer at a monthly show stage style (Desert Passion Middle Eastern Dance Theater) which features 8-10 professional belly dancers from around Texas. He performs at various clubs and other shows as well.
Drakon is currently the only consummate male Middle Eastern Dancer in Central Texas and infuses him with a burning passion that he magically transmits in a most refreshing manner. He is a gifted dancer with a love for this dance form is deeply embedded in his soul. His diverse performances of classical Egyptian “Raks Sharki” along with folkloric dances, particularly Nubian, Gawazee and Saide combines with masterful use of a Scimitar sword combines to create a unique and powerfully intense personal style. And whether he’s dancing with a silk veil or a sword. When his body moves to the rhythm of the music, his sacred and sensual feelings are felt by his appreciative audiences.
He is also a popular instructor, but many ask the question, Why is a man teaching women to belly dance? As a practicing Reiki Master, he knows that the Universal Life Force Energy moves the body to the music’s rhythm, so he first teaches his students a variety of ways to connect to that energy flow. Then, while in that sacred meditative state, he carefully and patiently guides them through all the basic “traditional Egyptian” moves and techniques and almost magically, they are able to isolate the muscle groups to make their bodies “do that."
He says, “When waiting backstage and I hear My music start, then I allow that Energy to take me. I just go along for the ride.”

What about Snake Dancing?
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 Lee 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.
Please visit my Daily Paint Works Gallery if you are interested in purchasing. Thanks.
