Shalimar was born a world away in far off Latavia where she was abducted by a wild band of cheerleading gypsies where she learned the ancient arts of ballet, gymnastics and baton twirling. (Oh those wild gypsies!) But she proved too wild for even this band of gypsies what with her drill team activities, pom-pom practice and all night clogging and dance aerobics in their tent. The exhausted gypsies plotted their escape from her three times and were finally successful when they left her with a band of Texas Bellydancers who turned out to be just as wild as Shalimar is. And the rest, as they say... is history. And here's a fun side note for all you fans out there, Shalimar came to us to do her photo set to help celebrate her 60th birthday!
