"I have truly enjoyed my classes with Melody. Not only does she teach the fundamental bellydance moves and choreography, she makes class so enjoyable and laid back! I am so happy going to her class each week, and leave feeling pleasantly sore from a wonderful, fun workout with a big smile on my face. I truly love bellydancing with Melody."

"Best. Teacher. Ever. Melody not only instructs in the physical dance itself, but also has extensive knowledge of the music, history, culture and costuming from specific areas where bellydance has originated. I can not emphasize enough how wonderful a teacher she is. I highly recommend taking a class!"

"Belly dance with Melody is a fantastic experience. I have been to a few studios in the past few years and this is the only one I have wanted to stick with.
Melody's sense of humor is a joy and makes it very fun to learn. Her knowledge of dance and the history of dance makes it even more interesting to be in class. I have learned more in her studio than I ever thought possible.
Going to dance class is a highlight of my week. I would encourage anyone to give her classes a try.
Embrace your curves, embrace your sensuality, embrace your beauty and DANCE with Melody!! "
