Nalini (38) is the highest paid belly dancing instructor in Trinidad. "I have been dancing professionally since 1996. I used to be an account executive then. I realized one day that not only was I happier, I was also making more money giving dance classes. I decided to quit my job and take this up full time. Today, I have a dance company called N9. N stands for '8', '9' stands for the next level up. N9 is an aspiration to get to the next level. Through dance, I focus on uplifting the spirit of my students. I want to empower people through dancing, to focus on the inside. If you are beautiful on the inside, you will shine on the outside."
