>> in a theater costume workshop named “MARANGONI FASHION “. These costumes have become as famous as I am. they became a part of me. It ıs hard for me to abandon them. My idea is to exhibit them in a “Princess Banu belly dance costumes exhibition “, then sell them in an auction and donate the earning to a charity foundation. Maybe this is for the best. Question: What would you tell young women today, who take up Oriental dance.., what advise would you give them? Princess Banu: For a belly dancer, talent and physical attributes are equally important. A belly dancer should never be very thin. A plump body is necessary to be able to show the movements of the abdomen, belly and hips. In my opinion a dancer has to love her job first. It is significant to be able to live and feel the dance. And ıt should not be forgotten that belly dancing is one of the hardest dance styles in the world. In order to gain the necessary agility one must exercise for long times. Thank you very much for this Interview, Princess Banu.
