One and a half years ago, I attended a beginner bellydance class by Sahina. I really wanted to learn how to bellydance but had no idea what to expect and was unsure if I would be able to keep up. At the end of the class, all my uncertainties were completely put to ease: Sahina is a fantastic teacher who truly cares about the success of each of her students. She has the ability to assess where a student is in their dance development and then provide them with the appropriate tools to succeed. Her classes are always fun as well as informative: Sahina has a wealth of knowledge on the cultural aspects behind bellydance. I have attended many more classes with Sahina since then and wouldn't have it any other way! If you are looking for a fun way to work out, meet new people, and learn about new cultures; I highly recommend taking one of Sahina's classes! -Kathy L.
Private and semi-private lessons are available for students who wish to have a more focused learning experience. This can be a great way to get extra help with in-class material, work with solo projects and performance skills, or fine tune your dance technique. The cost is $50 per hour plus a studio rental fee which varies based on location. Please call or email to schedule a private lesson.
Sahina is available to teach workshops on a variety of topics. Please visit the workshops page for further information.
I missed a class in the middle of a session, can I make it up?
Unfortunately there are no makeups for missed classes.
Are students provided with performance opportunities?
Students are given the option to participate in student showcases twice a year. These showcases are Dancing into the Dark and Dancing into the Light hosted by Chaya and Sahina. This allows the students to have a safe place to perform for their family and friends so they may share what they have been working on in class.
