Her dance makes people hold their breath. Today is the birthday of Selime Chelebieva

Her performance of the famous Crimean Tatar dance «Tim-Tim” would make the audience breathless. So refined and graceful were her dancing moves! So deeply she knew and percieved the national music and dance!

In her childhood, the well-known dancer Selime Chelebieva, as she recollects herself, could only dream of the stage.

As a little girl, she lost her father- her childhood was difficult. Being fond of dancing, young Selime adored weddings- surely you can be dancing there to your heart’s content.
