About this pro

My passion in Belly dance started since I turned 13

I took classes first in Ukraine and than in USA with World Champions, winners of plenty competitions and just famous dancers such as Randa Kamal, Mohamed Shahin, Tito Seif, Dr Gamal, Anna Borisova, Marta Korzun, Yuliya Yakoviyk, Elena Ramazanova, Diva Darina, Mercedes Nieto and many other great dancers.

For a long time I was looking for my style, what my soul is closer to. First i tried to copy famous Belly dancers, what was really a bad idea. Then I tried to make my own, and that is the best what every dancer can do!

And while teaching students I don't make them copy me or somebody else. I teach how to find personal unique style highliting your best sides (and body and manner of dancing).

I do all my best to make you rememberable!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First of all we discuss a place for lessons. On the first lesson we learn and practice basic rhytmes and moves. I would like to hear your story why you want to learn Belly Dance so I can better undestand what style and manner i should teach you

If you already have some experience that is awesome! You are more than welcome to bring your favourite music, so you can be fully relaxed! We will start from learning choreography from easier to more advanced depends on your level

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I regulary attend plenty of workhops to get more experience and take part in competitions all over the USA with famous and talanted dancers. I record every workshop and buy new music from teachers making my own workshop base which I share with my regular students and save a lot of money for them

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

First lesson is free

If you feel good working with me we can discuss prices

Basically if you want me to travel to you it is 15$ per hour

If you prefer to take a lesson in dance studio that would be 20$/hour for renting dance studio + 15$ per hour for lesson (if you want to take lesson with a friend you can share the cost of rent)
