Barb says
 "I began my dance journey at 4 - Ballet, Modern Dance, Mid East Oriental Belly Dance path way. It is wonderful to study as many dance forms as possible. You can't take training out but you can add layers of expression. I never thought I would become a Belly Dancer. Many first time students fall in love with the dance. I did. I love to learn,  perform & teach .
Dancing a Veil, skirt, studying the rhythms and learning to play finger cymbals adds much to a dancers repetoire. 
Book a dance class party at the studio for family & friends. Hire me solo or with my dancers to come dance with you at your home for a family party . Everyone can dance! Veils and hip scarves for all .  Learn a circle dance all together!  Your gift is a Free Cd of the songs you learn dances to. At the most recent home party the mom's, dad's, teens, children and grandparents danced together in a cozy living room ......Look on The Tanagra page for more info
The Dancing Spirit Studio is available to rent for yoga classes, drum circles, home schoolers, meetings, parties, showings
