"Amazing and thoughtful teacher. She explains the moves thoroughly and made me feel welcomed and part of the group!" - Amber Armstrong 

"Belly dancing is so much fun and Zahra is a great teacher." - Kristine Gray

I took a drop in class to try something new and fell in love with belly dancing! Zahra is an amazing teacher, she makes it easy to learn the moves and choreography. I drive 25 mins to get there from the far south end of Edmonton, to downtown. Totally worth it! - Nancy Green

"I have taken various classes with multiple instructors at Desert Rose and have never been disappointed! Every instructor has been so informative and great at teaching correct form and technique with time to focus on each student. These ladies are amazing and so much fun!" - Amanda Burger
