“I came here using one of the beginner specials and I am constantly glad I gave it a try. I never thought I could be a dancer and I never thought I had the right body for it. The first class alone taught me I was wrong about both….” Carly “Flo” – Houston, TX

“A place to learn how to dance from the wonderful Anna! I get to make new friends and escape the dullness of the daily grind and do something fun for me. With Anna, you get an education in a beautiful art form and get in shape at the same time!” Corinna – Houston, TX

“Anna is one of the most knowledgeable teachers I’ve known. She is kind and professional and will give you wonderful advice! Please look no further if you plan on taking a dance class, you won’t be disappointed!” Valeri – Houston, TX

“Anna is incredibly thorough in her training. She does not just teach the moves, but every aspect of Middle Eastern Dance. From history, choreography, costuming. props, performing etc. The teachers are excellent and they share their passion with each student they teach.” Christy – Cypress, TX
