Aphrodite’s most unusual memorable performance anecdote:
“A restaurant once hired me for a Flash Mob style Belly Dancing event, so I took some other dancers to join me. I thought it would be inside the restaurant as on regular nights and it was middle of Winter just before Christmas.. However when we arrived we discovered it was set for outside as a media stunt! It was wet as it had been raining earlier, and it was cold and very windy, which made the Isis Wings dance a little tricky.. We performed with verve nonetheless and the audience and media were all thrilled with it!”
