Whipgirl Tina on Late Night with Conan!

Tina Nagy, Friend and Makeup StudentMy good friend and great bellydancer Tina Nagy was recently on Conan with the Great Throwdini. She took private makeup training from me some years ago and said what I taught her worked great for Conan--their makeup person said she was good to go!

Tina also recently recorded a segment for Univision, and has been on America's Got Talent with Jerry Springer:

Tina has also started a blog called Empowered Vulnerability. Update: Tina was just mentioned in the March 17 issue of the New Yorker Magazine in an article about magic called "The Real Work."


  1. I have been meaning to tell you that I really like the way you teach. I also enjoy when you are having us do arm movements or something graceful, over and over. Something that looks so easy can sometimes be hard to make it look graceful. You are a very graceful and talented dancer. I hope to be able to make it to the Southern to see you and Jawaahir dance.

    I finally heard you on the radio, on 108, but didn't realize it was you at first. I was reading on your voice and radio website where you had worked. I hadn't realized you were in Denver at the same time I lived there. My Mom listened to Majic 100, so i would have heard you occasionally, not knowing it. It is a small world.

  2. When Throwdini and I did our knifethrowing show at Monday Night Magic in NY the producers from Late Night with Conan O'Brien were in the audience (we didn't know this) and liked what they we got a call to shoot a segment on the show.

    We didn't know if we'd get on (anything can happen during the editing process, as we learned on America's Got Talent) but we made it. My mom covers her eyes when she watches ....;)
