"When I first walked into the Dancing Spirits Studio; I was welcomed by the faint sent of incense, vibrant colored costumes, and Barbra's fun free spirited personality. It didn't take long for me to feel very at home and excepted at the studio. Barbra is a very genuine person who loves to express herself through dance. Even greater then that she wants to share her knowledge and passion with the people around her. She has a personal desire to bring people together through the arts, whatever someones form of artistic expression maybe. Barbra understands that art, or dance, is not something that can always be taught, but is more so felt and embodied by the person. In my short time at Dancing Spirits I have learned about individuality, expression, confidence, femininity, elegance as much as I have about belly dance its self. Not only is the dance fun physical exercise, it is also a connection between mind, body, and emotion. As you build up strength and skill, you become more confident not only dancing but being who you are. In short, belly dance teaches you much more than just shimmies and hip circles. It is a truly beautiful art form that many people have not had the chance to appreciate. Dance class is one of my favorite parts of my week. I always feel very relaxed and comfortable. I have never had a bad class or left with a bad attitude. I always have a great time and always learn something new. Class is very care free, fun, and relaxed. Even when we get down to business and get to dancing its so much fun that it doesn't feel like work. Some things are hard yet there is no pressure, and Barbra is very encouraging. I highly recommend this class to anyone who loves art, exercise, or just having a good time. "

"Fantastic classes! Barbara is an excellent teacher, she is the key to unlock the world of bellydance! Even for people with 2 left feet (like me). In her class, I feel like a princess and a goddess, and leave walking taller and feeling better about myself. Every woman should give this class a try!"

"My sister Barb, the dancing spirit embodies so much joy and light when she dances it is infectious to every one in the room. She loves to share her joy with the world as a huge invitation to come and play with her, with the spirit that unites us all, to love our bodies exactly the way they are and love how it feels to move them to music, the pure joy of it. She has helped so many to begin the tender journey of loving being embodied, a spirit in a body moving around in the joy of existence. To have her dance for you, teach you, perform for and with you is a delight in every way. May her radiant presence ripple out into your world so that you may touch some of the spirit that she invokes for us all to behold. Lizzy "

"I was very lucky to get a chance to do cardio belly dance, and I will take the class on a regular basis. It is a graceful and elegant way to work my core and many other areas, and at the same time learn new belly dance movements. Students start out wearing layers of clothes, and as they warm up the layers come off. And you DO heat up! The movements are controlled and small, but the results are big. You will work muscles you did not even know you have! It is an elegant and creative way to get a real workout. You will never get bored and you will learn to get more graceful in your movements. "
