Sahina is not only one of the most talented dancers that I have ever had the honor of witnessing perform, but her personality, love for dance and her students, and approachable nature make classes incomparably enjoyable as well as extremely productive. Sahina has provided me with the integral foundation of bellydance, but she also has instilled in me the love and passion for dance that I take with me to every workshop, class, and performance. -excerpt from Laura P.
