    If I recall correctly, she used to be an ER nurse. Sausan of SF I believe may have more information as well as a video of Zeinat.

    Thanks for posting those videos. She's a lovely dancer, but I'm not sure I'm 100% into some of those costume choices. The sheer skirt with the dark bead swag at the crotch in the first clip was sort of squicky, but the prize goes to that bra in the last clip. Maybe it looked better in person but with the quality of that video, it came across like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer got a job designing lingerie at Frederick's of Hollywood--eep!

    I adore Zeinat and her dancing.

    I'm fine with that first costume too actually. It wouldn't be becoming to everyone (including myself), but to me she looks great. The superpointy bra in the other clip is indeed strange by today's fashion standards, but I'm old enough to remember when stiff, distinctly pointed bras were in style (though not quite old enough to have worn them myself..l;,). Possibly it might not have seemed so weird at the time.

    How funny -- I just ran across her name last night and was wondering about her. Is she on the "Legends of Bellydance" DVD, in a clip misattributed to Taheya Carioca?

    Wow - I just pulled it out and sure enough she is listed on there...so she is actually given credit as Zeinat Olwi. (although I need to watch this again to make sure they credited her with the right piece). How did I miss her?!? D'oh. ..c::
