Belly'ed Up

Belly dance your way to death.

[exotic music]

SOME PEOPLE SHOOT FOR THE STARS.

OTHERS NEVER GET OFFTHEIR FAT DUFFS.

NATASHA WAS A MOVERAND A SHAKER

SHE HAD HER EYESFIXED ON ONE GOAL--

TO WIN THE BELLY DANCEROF THE UNIVERSE COMPETITION.

- BELLY DANCING'SA WAY OF EXPRESSION.

IT'S VERY EROTIC, VERY HOT,

AND IT'S GOT A LOTOF CULTURE BEHIND IT.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY SEXY.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE MAKING LOVETO THE AIR.

[laughing]

announcer: NATASHAHAD ALREADY PUT HERSELF

THROUGH VETERINARIAN SCHOOL

BY DANCING AT LOCALMIDDLE EASTERN RESTAURANTS

AND NIGHTCLUBS.

FOR NATASHA,THE 5,000-YEAR-OLD DANCE FORM

WAS THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSIONOF SENSUALITY.

THE BELLY DANCEROF THE UNIVERSE COMPETITION

WAS HER SUPER BOWL.

DANCERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLDWOULD BE COMPETING.

TO WIN IT, SHE WOULD HAVETO TAKE HER SKILLS

TO THE HIGHEST LEVELIMAGINABLE.

SHE IMPLEMENTEDA RIGOROUS TRAINING SCHEDULE,

THE EQUALOF ANY PRO ATHLETE.

EVERY NIGHT,SHE WOULD COME HOME FROM WORK

AND PRACTICE SHAKING,

SPINNING,

SWAYING, AND SPLITTING

UNTIL EXHAUSTED.

BUT SOMETIMES,WHEN YOU SHOOT FOR THE STARS...

YOU WIND UP LOST IN SPACE.

- THE LARYNXIS A VERY INTRICATE,

WELL-DEVELOPED TISSUE.

IF THIS GETS CRUSHED,

ALL OF A SUDDEN,YOU'VE CHOKED OFF

THE OXYGEN SUPPLYTO THE LUNGS,

AND AS A RESULT,YOU CAN ASPHYXIATE TO DEATH.

announcer: NATASHA NEVER MADE ITTO THE COMPETITION.

INSTEAD OF BECOMINGTHE NUMBER ONE DANCER...

SHE BECAMEONE NUMB DANGLER.
