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.

Yaminah is a great dance instructor. She is passionate and makes class challenging, but fun. I learned so much in the African Dance class and want to take another class. If it want to learn from a professional and enjoy what you’re learning, then you can’t go wrong with any of Yaminah’s classes!

Yaminah is such an awesome teacher! She is very attentive to the students’ needs! She lots of fun and energictic and keeps you on your toes! Most of all she makes sure the student has taken some form of knowledge away when they leave!

When I say Yaminah is Everything!!! I have worked with her in multiple lanes within the dance industry and we played with a variety of dance styles. Yaminah has a natural way of leading and guiding you into each movement with intricate descriptions. I highly suggest anyone looking to hone in on skill and experience; Yaminah will definitely help you reach your goal.
