Ghanima Ghiditana, one of Jamila Salimpour’s longstanding students and performers, visited Tunisia and did thorough research on Tunisian dance. She created a choreography representing her extensive studies, and Jamila featured Ghanima as the Tunisian soloist in Bal Anat. Ghanima developed her own representative costuming and selected the music. Her husband, one of the Bal Anat musicians, accompanied her on the tabl baladi.
Ghanima was also an instructor for Jamila. She also assisted in the creation of The Danse Orientale (a manual of Jamila Vocabulary Step Families and Steps compiled for an upcoming workshop) in 1978.
