“Jacinda [Aliya Dalal] is a wonderful teacher.  She is extremely patient and explains everything very clearly.  She knows a lot about the history and culture of belly-dancing and really makes it come alive.  Although she is a beautiful dancer, she never made her students (some of us (me) were terrible!) feel bad or even self-conscious.  Belly-dancing is an incredible workout and a lot of fun! Looking forward to doing it again!! ”
