For many years I knew I wanted to try bellydance, but just never knew where or how to start. About two years ago, a dear friend recommended Sahina's classes to me and brought me along for a drop in during the summer session. Immediately I knew I had found the right place and the right teacher. 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. For brand new dancers who are just starting out, Sahina is excellent at breaking down movements, creating a welcoming yet challenging learning environment, and providing unending support and encouragement. For experienced students, she excels at teaching in order to foster personal growth and development as a dancer. 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. I highly recommend Sahina Bellydance!! You will not regret it! -Laura P.
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.
When I think of what I could do when you first introduced the choreography and how our performances ended up in the show I can only be impressed at how far you brought us in class! You are so thorough in your drilling of the choreography and yet take time to answer individual questions and review all the details of each move. You have a very positive attitude and bring out the best in your students with encouragement and flexibility. The passion you bring to your subject is obvious and infectious.
