Of Mothers and Daughters

Older daughter
Younger Daughter

I have two daughters and I've always wondered why they've never had the least bit of interest in becoming belly dancers. One of my daughters did take ballet for awhile but gave it up when a soccer injury gave her a bum knee. The other one doesn't like to be stared at, so becoming a performer wasn't high on her to-do list. That means I'm the only belly dancer in my family and always have been. I see so many mother and daughter dance teams, and I think that would have been nice, but one thing I know is if someone doesn't have a passion for something, you can't make them love it.
