I had Soraya over to my house for my daughters 16th birthday party to teach basic Belly Dance moves to the group of 10 teen age girls. Before speaking with her, I had several ideas of how to celebrate this big moment and was very glad that Soraya was my final decision. She brought everything that was needed to teach. Including descriptions of the moves, great music and hip scarves so that the girls jingled when they shimmied. She encouraged the girls to feel comfortable with themselves even though some were very reserved about joining. Her love and passion for the dance was so infectious that everyone was moving and shimming and dancing and having the time of their lives. My daughter loved it so much she started taking classes shortly thereafter and we haven’t looked back.
