Belly Dancing · In studio

I am so grateful for having Salit as my belly dance teacher. She challenges me and teaches me new ways of dancing. She also has taught me important things to remember; for example to take note in where my gaze is, the position of my arms, the relaxation of my face, and not to forget to breath! Working with Salit has helped me become a better dancer because she focuses on what I am good at, corrects my mistakes, and teaches me not only how to dance, but how to perform. I started working with Salit to become a better dancer and I am proud to say that I am, thanks to her.
