""Hugs to u ; ) just wanted to thank you for being such a dance inspiration and to share this story... While I was vacationing in Hilton Head my mother asked me to perform for a group of 30 or so at a party, of course I told her yes and during the time I was getting dressed for the "show", I broke down and started crying ; I'm not sure why I was crying because I had never done that before a show, usually I have nervous excitement but a good excitement, never crying.. my mother came in to check on me and see if I needed help with anything, when she seen me in tears she asked if I wanted her to go out and tell everyone that I wasn't going to dance... at that time I was reaching in my bag for my zills and your business card (which I keep with me) fell out on the vanity.. I just smiled and told my mother "no, you can't cancel this show.. Mariah is the person who has inspired me more than anyone and if she was here..the show would go on. 5 minutes later, the music started playing and I danced... I was told I did a beautiful performance and had 2 people ask me to come back and perform , I silently thanked you for being the inspiration ♥""
""Mariah is a wonderful Teacher. She makes dancing fun and exciting!! She is beautiful both inside and out!""

""Bellydance workshop with Maria was great!!! Went with my belly girls Chiquita and Rachel Poman and met other shimmy sisters there from my tribal and cabaret classes. Mariah aka Maria is an awesome dancer and instructor. She performed for us at the end of the workshop. It was amazing, beautiful and I was in awe. I saw her do things with her belly I've not seen before. A ripple move that had me spellbound. Purchased an awesome cd that we were dancing to, another to add to my bellydance music collection. We had a great time and after dinner and strawberry margaritas!!! Feelin' so blessed to have the women in my life that I do, dance and that I live in a country that I can go do what I want, when I want and bare my belly and dance to my hearts content if I so choose. Have bellydance fitness in the morning and a bellydance event and flea market in the afternoon to look forward. It's gonna be another great day! Hope you all had a great night. Wishing you sweet dreams that you awake from happy and smiling. Goodnight, love and light! — feeling so happy and incredibly blessed.""
