Mina's Dance Classes

Mountain View and SunnyVale, Ca
I have been Studying Middle Eastern Dance now for over 10 years. Dance has always been something in my blood, since a little girl when I used to do Ballet to now, studying Bharatanatyam or Classical East Indian Dance. I have always wanted to give a part of myself to the world, and through dance I have been able show what is in my heart.

I want to give the knowledge that I have to others so that they may be able to express some or all of what I have found though this wonderful art. I am more than willing to teach any that are interested. Classes can be scheduled individually or in groups. Groups are preferred and you will also find that you will have more fun with more people involved in the class. Classes can be anywhere from once a week for an hour session or up to three times a week also hour long sessions. I do have set class times currently running. Please look further down the page for more details.

Belly Dancing is an active workout and you will find that you have Muscles where you never before knew you had. I would love to teach everyone who comes to me, Male or Female. I am in the Mountain View, CA area. My email address is on our contacts page. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions. Do not feel that you cannot do something unless you try it first. -Cheri Foster AKA: Mina
