What Students Have to Say

“Her encouraging response to my e-mail drew me to her studio, despite my middle age and less than ideal figure. Since the first class, I have felt completely accepted. I am willing to try any dance move because I know there will not be any ridicule. Latifa patiently develops our dance steps one layer at a time, from the basic step to facial expression. More importantly, she encourages us to express the joy dance brings to us.”
