I'm always asked, "Jilly, how did you get into belly dancing, seeing as how you're a colossal squid and all?"
Well, it's not a very exciting story really. After I left school I went to work in a Lebanese restaurant as a dishwasher (pay attention in class, kids. That's all I'm saying). They had a dancer and she and I got on like a house on fire and soon became best friends. We bonded over the fact that we had similar names. I wonder whatever happened to Jillina anyway? If you’re out there, girl, holla!
