Egyptian belly dancer Dina revealed that her only son Ali is
proud of her profession and is not ashamed to be called “Ibn Al Raqasah” (the
dancer’s son). She added that her son appreciates the hard efforts she places
in her dancing and the reaction of people to it.

Dina added that she does not fear that one day her son will
ask her to give up her career due to the fact that he is not closed minded and
she raised him in such a way to respect her no matter what she does.
According to the internet website MBC.net, Dina denied
rumors that she sent her son to live in the United States because the profession
of dancing is a respectable one there, but merely for the fact that she wants
him to get a good academic education.
Dina also stated that she did not insure her body, despite
the fact that it is her most important asset through which she makes a living. She
added that such an insurance that is common in Western countries does not exist
in Egypt. Dina revealed that any international dance festival she takes parts
in insures her body during the duration of the festival she participates in.
The dancer stressed that plastic surgeries are out of the
question for her in the current time, but did reveal that in the future she may
have a plastic surgery done if she encountered an accident.
