 What our students say. . .

““Corina is a great belly dancing instructor. I took her class at UCLA and really enjoyed it, she put in the effort to make sure we all got the movements even though we were all at different levels. She gives you time to ask questions and addresses the questions every time. She
even gave us the music and recorded the routine so we can practice them at home which I really appreciated. I will be taking her class again.”
