  • Michelle Lopez

    Emily Choreographed a surprise dance for my wedding. I can honestly say she’s the most amazing and patient instructor. She had 10 of bridesmaids and myself to train (most of us had 2 left feet) but you would never know it seeing the performance. Thank you for your great work Emily!! Now, onto belly dance classes, ready to learn your Shakira moves! #myhipsdontlie

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

We start with basic steps, small conceptual choreographys that will lead into engaging with belly dancing. Belly dancing works with muscles and parts of our bodies that we are not so familiar with. Classes are fun as belly dancing brings a lots of benefits into our lives! 

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

I have over 24 years of belly dancing. I have taught for 7 years btw Brazil and US. Have danced professionally in the Emirates, Lebanon, Baharien, Jordan and Egypt for 5 years.
