Private Lessons

I offer private lessons in person and on Skype to personalize your blissful belly dance experience! I also offer private instruction in Rajasthani Gypsy/Kalbelia Dance and Turkish Roman (gypsy) dance. In the focused time of your private lesson, we can really delve into the nitty-gritty of what will help you the most at this time in your belly dance evolution.

In private lessons, all levels of students have gained great benefit from my personalized instruction in the areas of:

  • in-depth understanding of movements
  • perfecting technique
  • feeling more confident with improvisation
  • developing emotional expression in belly dance
  • personal study in areas of belly dance outside the scope of regular class
  • perfecting their mastery of props such as veil, double veil, and sword
  • preparing for performances and other special dance projects

I find that private lessons are more successful when students are clear on the topic(s) they want to work on, so please come prepared. If I have not met you before your private lesson, I will ask you what you want to work on and possibly to see a video of you dancing before we meet. This is to insure that you and I make the most of our time together.

“I love Annya’s belly dance class! I feel that I can move much more fluidly and easily than when I started 6 months ago, and my stamina has definitely improved.”
