“I collaborated with Cecilia on the production of her documentary film “Belly: Sensuous, Scarred and Sacred” and had the privilege of contributing an original piece of music for the sound track.  Performing live with her as a dancer has always been a highlight in my musical career. I have also seen firsthand the respect Cecilia and Chad have within the film community in Boise and beyond.  I attended a seminar where Cecilia was a panel member speaking on behalf of women in the film/video business.  Her experience and insight in to the business was grounded with practical examples and hard earned lessons.”~Oliver Thompson, violin/mandolin, recording, producing, bandleader

“Cecilia with Full Tilt Bellydance is a professional in every way.  I had the joy of sponsoring the Belly movie and a show with her in Denver.  Cecilia’s professionalism and organization helped to create a smooth event including a sold out house.  In addition to her professionalism in business, her art on the stage showed diversity, emotion and technique.  The audience including many well known Denver dancers commented on the talent in her performances throughout the weekend.~Phoenix of Denver www.phoenix-dancing.com
