There are moments when I watch my student’s dance that I get goose bumps and chills up my spine. And … [Read More...]
Belly Dancing today is different than it was twenty years ago, and with today's modern conveniences, women are finding dance classes are just a click away. As a dance teacher, I found that I wanted belly dance to be available to all women who might not otherwise be able to learn because of location, economy or family. Thus began my journey with … [continue reading]
Hi Leyla and Dan, I am very glad I did your online home study course. I will do the next one for sure. This form of study gives me a strong motivation, and sense of duty fo attend and to do my excercise on Saturday……nevertheless the DVDs from both classes are must have items. Thank you so much for your leadership, and for sharing and caring. I am looking forward to next classes!
Thank You, Thank You
I just watched teh video and started practicing and I love it…………I love how you explain. Finally I think I can do it because finally I get to understand.
Thanks a lot
I have searched for many Belly Dancing teachers for 2 years now but you are exceptional and you do stand out from the rest”…Karamia
I’m 23 and have wanted to learn how to belly dance for years. Unfortunately here are no classes in my area. I have tried many times to learn with DVDs as well as online videos and have never had any success until I came across your site. I’m finally understanding!!! the way you break down the movements and the details you go into are amazing and exactly what a beginner needs…I am so happy I came across this. cant wait for the next video!
I feel like I’m in a serious dance class actually learning the art of BellyDance; you appear serious about the instruction and are not trying to be all cutesy (which is nice). Granted I’ve only seen Hip Mastery 1 , it does cue me into how the others will be delivered; I will be getting to them as soon as I can do the first DVD’s moves quickly…Zumba ain’t got nothing on you! Is there anything I can do to help get the word out, because Leyla these are good and need to be in every dancer’s library. Kimberly
Hey Leyla! I am SO happy I found your website!!! I used to have a problem with back pain but since I started your lessons, it’s gone way down! When I have back pain I practice dancing & it goes away! It’s also helped with my posture & helped me lose weight which has helped with my confidence!! Ari Feb 9, 2012 I am doing pretty good and have pretty much everything down, except I am having some trouble with doing chest circles. I can do them to the left but going to the right is difficult for me for some reason. Any ideas on how I can help make that easier? Thank you so much Leyla! <3
I love the way you are showing how to do these moves. By showing the moves from the side, it makes it easier to see what you are doing . You have tremendous talent. I look forward to trying to learn more. Thank you, Pam
Love it Love it Love it. It is so awesome that it was made just for me. I really like the amount of repetition and I like how Leyla does things facing front, side, and back. Yeah!!! I love that the first 2 combos (haven’t watched the whole thing yet) involve ami’s. I know how to do them but I rarely use them. (Not sure why). Now I get to really practice and use them.
Very detailed and specific instructions.I’ve viewed a few beginning videos and you were the only one who gave specifics for how to hold arms-fingers, and pelvis. Most just tell you to slightly bend knees and hold arms out. Great instructing
