Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover - This Woman Is Talented!

Girl GOT THEM MOVES! Meet Mandanah Gallegos who is known as one of the world’s first highly awarded, full-figured belly dancers, according to Little Things. This video shows her wowing the crowd at the Middle Eastern Treasures concert at the Humanist Hall in Oakland by Mary Ellen Donald.

Gallegos is known for her beautifully graceful movements and enthusiasm she creates with her moves. It takes a lot of hard work to be able to manipulate your body to make such controlled movements perfectly to the beat of the drum.

Her video has gotten more than 33 million views.

Gallegos has been a competitive belly dancer for more than five years and has received several awards, including one for her duets and drum solo at the 2006 Belly Dancer of the Universe Competition. She also plays the zill, which are finger cymbals.

Gallegos is a part of the Petite Jolie duo with Shabnam, who is also an accomplished belly dancer. The Shabnam Company is in Oakland and offers a variety of classes in the San Francisco Bay Area, according to the San Francisco Globe.
