Today, the NYC bellydance community lost one of its greatest dancers, artists, and visionaries, Jeniviva. Early this morning she passed in a car accident involving a drunk driver. Please learn from her story and encourage others to do the same.
I had the distinct honor of watching Jeniviva perform, using her glamorous bath goodies, and learning from her as a student. She was a wonderful person who was always generous with smiles and encouragement, and she will be remembered for many many years to come. Please enjoy this video of her work and send your thoughts and prayers to her family, friends, and loved ones.
On December 1st Jerry Bezdikian is hosting an evening at Kamasutra Lounge to honor her memory. Please help us spread the word.
In Jeni’s own words:
“But I shall weep no more today for the Dead,
They are free of this mortal coil
I shall weep for the ones left behind
and whisper prayers of love and healing instead.
Fill the void now left with light
and drink to the immortality of love.”
