    "Two left feet, no rhythm, can’t carry a tune, but I love Lina’s dance classes. I’ve miraculously learnt some new dance steps, have increased my shoulder mobility, [and] strengthened my core thanks to Lina’s patience and dedication. An added benefit for me is less trips to my physiotherapist!"

    Rachel F - Dance student

    “Lina’s classes are always fun and she teaches in a way that really makes it “sink in”. I had been belly dancing for 6 years when I took her fundamentals classes to brush up on the basics. She really helped me to understand where the movements are coming from & her breakdown of the muscles used helped my dancing to improve in leaps & bounds.”

    Angie A – Member of the Nazirah Belly Dance group.
