My husband and I hired Amala for our wedding and she was just absolutely amazing! Her dancing skills are the best I've seen and that's saying a lot because belly dancing is something I've been following quite a while. Most dancers I found while I was searching just went through the motions with a blank face, but you can see a spark in Amala's eye's when she dances. She lights up the room! She was full of smiles as she got several people in the room to dance. Even my Uncle who seems to have never danced in his life! haha! I think he is still picking up his jaw from the ground because of Amala's stunning beauty. Amala was very professional, talented, polite, arrived on time, and communicated excellent. We will hire her again for my husbands birthday party, and I will never stop recommending her experienced dancing to my family and friends! Fun and excitement was enjoyed by everyone in her presence. She should seriously be dancing for Kings and Queens, but we are fortunate enough to have her bless us with her extraordinary talent. We love you Amala Gameela!!!! Oh, and I am going to take your traditional belly dancing lessons as I promised. I'm tired of the watered down fusion stuff that is out there. I need to learn belly dancing just like the masters. You are a beautiful, brilliant woman, never stop sharing your talent with the world!
Amala has been my belly dance teacher for four years!! She is an excellent teacher! She makes sure all her students learn the moves correctly. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of Egyptian belly dancing! She is kind and always encouraging to all of her students! As a dancer, teacher and performer she is always professional! She has planned many HAFLAS and other belly dance performances which are always FABULOUS! She provides workshops dealing with many different areas of belly dance. All in all…she is a wonderful person and an excellent teacher!
I've had Amala perform for my restraunts now for over 2 1/2 years and it's never a dull and boring performance.. With the great energy she brings to the restaurant electricity in not needed..
