  • An Interview with Marliza Pons
  • Maya: Marliza, I thought this would be the perfect time to interview you, since I hear you are leaving Las Vegas soon, after having performed and taught belly dance here since 1965!
  • Marliza: Yes, I am moving home to Chicago. It's time. My moms are elderly, and ill, and I want to be with them.
