"I highly recommend ANY opportunity that you get to work with Sahira. Sahira is one of the most dedicated teachers that I have had the honor of training with in my dance technique and choreography education. I have met with her for my own choreography project and the amount of attention and guidance she gave to me was unsurpassed by any other that I’ve experienced to date. There is no doubt that she will always be my “go to” instructor for all my choreography assistance and critique because I know that I can depend on her to be 100% committed to helping me create a quality performance piece!"

"Sahira is an amazing instructor. She gives me peace of mind when I express any doubt in dancing abilities. Sahira always encourages us with our dance expression to best match our personalities, ensuring in our own personal technique. I have been able to present myself with my own body expression, and have been becoming more confident with my dance technique thanks to Sahira and her positive outlook. Due to Sahira's delineated breakdown of technique, I have been able to improve every aspect of my dancing, from body expression - to facial expression; all the way from the way I use my hands to the way point my toes! All of her students are lucky to have her, as she has nothing but positive and encouraging things to say. She is also has a touch of class mixed with exoticism in every dance move!"
