From My Students:

Parvaneh Bellydance"When I was little, I used to dance all around all the time. Then life happened and I didn't dance as freely. I didn't know I needed to reconnect to that free time. The first time I went, I didn't know what to expect. I go regularly now because I can go there feeling sad or mad and I just dance that emotion right out. I love the no competition in that dance group. I feel beautiful, strong and confident when I am finished dancing for the night. Ah thank you Parvaneh, you have been the bringer of joy to my life."- Deb

"Your dance classes have become a treasured part of my life. I love that it is a wonderful creative outlet as well as a great workout. I have seen improvements in strength, stamina, flexibility and balance. More than that though, I love that women have been dancing to music like this for a thousand years, dancing in community and joy and celebration. No match for a stationary bike. Thanks" - Kim
