I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

My daughter had her first lesson with Yaminah today and is already looking forward to next week! We had some technical issues on our end and Yaminah was not only patient and super helpful. My daughter was a bit nervous, but she had a way of putting people at ease throughout the lesson as well. She was encouraging and supportive.

What can I say about Yaminah. She is easily one of best instructors I have ever had. I have had lots of instructors in different disciplines but accross the board she is the best. I take hip-hop with Yaminah and she is a phenomenal dancer and teacher. I am learning so much and improving so fast thanks to her fun style and professionalism.
