About Tahira
Tahira's path as a dancer became clear at a very young age. After being exposed to ballet by a neighbor was all it took, literally after one lesson a life time of dance was pursued.

Much of Tahira's training is accredited to her years spent at Le Petite Danseuse, Debbie Allen and The Dance Arts Academy. Traveling to Europe and South America to study dance has also played an intricate role in the exposure and passion of dance.

Tahira continues to infuse her passion and love of dance, by sharing this beautiful expression with young women in her community. Whether teaching classes, mentoring dancers or volunteering at inner city schools and shelters the power of dance is being invoked.

Tahira has ensured her love of dance through education with certifications in Performance Enhancement Specialist, Personal Training and Wellness
Coaching, by The National Academy of Sports Medicine. Being fluent in several languages, with an emphasis on French, allows for ballet classes to be taught in a professional manner.

Combining my skills, experience and natural passion for dance allows me to positively mentor others that share this passion.

My daughter has been under the instruction of Ms Tahira Ali for about 4 years now. She has learned so much and she had taught her not only the the movement of ballet but the history behind it. My daughter, Daija continues to grow in every aspect of this art and has become so much more confident in herself under Ms Tahira’s instruction. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher, not only in dance but in life lessons.

I am an inspiring actress that landed an awsome role in a upcoming Life Time movie. As you can imagine i was beyond excited. The role was a visceral look inside the life of an inspiring ballerina. I found so many simularities between myself and this character. However, the last ballet class i took i was about 5 or 6 years old.
Tahira was recomemded to me by another actress that had taken her barre class. Upon our first introduction i felt like we we're good friends, i felt totally comfotable and at ease. I was able to share all of my concerns and strengths. We started off with private lesson and finally i felt comfortable in group class.
Needless to say when production called and filming started " I KILLED IT"😉
I would highly recommend Tahira for ballet performance enhancement, private and group lessons.

Tahira is quite simply one of the most extraordinary educators I have ever met. Her warmth, skill, grace, talent and love of children is remarkable. My 6-year-old daughter attends her mixed-age dance class on Saturdays and it is the most enriching extra-curricular activity she's ever had. Somehow, Tahira is able to attune to the needs of every child in the class, from the shy 4-year-old to the middle-schooler en pointe. She has a masterful knowledge not only of dance and teaching, but of community-building. Her classes feel like family. The big girls mentor and take care of the little ones and the "sister circles" at the end of class bring tears to my eyes. Tahira's method of teaching builds character and compassion, as well as skill. She is a model of grace and goodness and exactly the type of teacher you want in your child's life.

About Thomecia
Hello! My name is Thomecia, you may call me Mimi :)
I've been teaching at my Alma Mater, Fisk University since I stepped foot on campus in 2010. I taught routines for the cheer squad and hip hop dance team. I also choreographed for numerous students on campus. Before college I obtained 15+ years of experience in many styles of dancing as well as cheerleading. I reside in the Bay Area, and have since advanced my choreography through training, performing with a dance company, artist development, teaching local classes, and more! I love working with children! I also love a great challenge, so if you feel like you have two left feet, I could change your world! Always remember, you are the artist and your body is the paint brush... Just move!

I have been dancing since I was in high school, so a total of 8 years. There is a lot that can be mastered in 8 years than one thinks. I currently still am a dancer today. I dance for a dance company and have danced for a competitive company called C8 here in Los Angeles. I am a dance major here at Cal State Dominguez Hills who is heavily involved in the dance program. I currently teach kids in middle school. I love teaching Hip Hip, Jazz, Ballet, and locking. Don't be shy, LETS DANCE!!

My approach to Bellydance is all about body awareness. I work with students on understanding body mechanics in order to eventually be able to layer increasingly complex, grounded and fluid movements. Wether your goal is professional dance or simply to enjoy a new hobby, classes are tailored to your needs!

Private classes are 30 mins-2 hours. The first half of class focuses exercises to help pinpoint the right muscles. The second half is on our feet performing drills and dancing!

About Devon
Hi there, I’m a Bellydance teacher and performer based in Los Angeles!

I began belly dancing at the age of twelve with Tracy Windisch at the School of Performing Arts and Cultural Education in Ukiah California. At age 14 I joined her company Troupe Sattya who performed in festivals, private parties, and shows in Northern California including Health and Harmony, Sol Fest, and Tribal Fest. I currently teach at LABA in Los Angeles!

My Bellydance background is primarily in tribal fusion/cabaret. I also have training in modern, ballet and jazz technique.

Let’s dance!

About Michaela
Hello there!

My name is Michaela, I’m a graduate from the University of North Florida with a degree in nutrition and dietetics.

As long as I can remember, I have always been intrigued by how food can affect the human body. I grew up in the dance world where body image was everything. The dance world can be a wonderful and rewarding place full of structure and creativity, but it can also be brutal and dark. Dancers are always pushing their bodies to the limit and constantly challenging themselves to be better. I saw many girls struggling with their body image often eating close to nothing or making them selves throw up just to stay skinny. As I got older I realized that the nutritional resources and support came into play way too late and that proper nutrition guidance was necessary at an early age. Luckily, I had a wonderful support sy
stem at home that helped me make good choices when it came to my own nutrition and also supported my decision to peruse a career in nutrition.

Work with me for:
- Customized lifestyle recommendations
- Personalized eating plans
- Answers to nutrition related questions
- Enhance motivation to improve health
- Exercise plans and coaching

I look forward to working with you! :)
