My dance journey started on the 15 may 2013. Every week i look forward to my Monday and Tuesday nights, because I know, I am going to Ioanna's class. As a teacher Ioanna is patient, kind, energetic and encouraging and she takes the time to really teach the technical aspects of belly dance. Dance heaven is my favorite place. all my worries roll of my back when I enter.

Best studio to learn how to bellydance and the best teachers ever.
