    Default So my new teacher....

    .... IS awesome!

    Her name is Princess Madiha, and she teaches in the Southeast MI area. She teaches a totally different style than what Im used to but I like it. I was so afraid to go and take lessons from her because I had heard how strict she was and how scary her lessons were.... when in fact... it was nothing of the sort!

    She is very relaxed and she has some amazing insights! Im very please with both of my instructors actually. Im very blessed to have happened upon both of them. My very first instructor Stephanie Carr who I am still taking lessons from, is the most warm and friendly woman you will ever meet, and she really helped me feel more comfortable about myself. (not to mention her KILLER shimmy)

    I started classes w/ Princess Madiha two weeks ago and I am positively ecstatic!

    I just wanted to say how wonderful it feels to have happened on such.

    Thats all, You may now go back to your regularly scheduled programing.

    Sorry but the use of the name "Princess" always makes me chuckle!

    But I am so glad your classes are going well!

    Isn't this the lady when I had my chuckle on Bhuz, someone came on to say she was a Lebanese Druz and therefore......

    As you see, we send our princes off to war!

    Great to hear, It is wonderful when you find instructors you resonate with. I have had lessons from 2 at the same time
    (different days LOL!) At the moment i am only taking classes from one though. But would take classes from as many as i could fit into a week if I could find them

    Amber,
    Congrats! Have you seen any of the videos Princess Madiha has released? They're a bit expensive so I haven't bought them yet, but I was wondering what they were like.
    Thanks!

    She actually IS a real live princess. She was born to a noble family, and thats her actual title.

    Im not sure exactly what you would call her style. Heres a clip of her dancing: http://www.princessmadiha.com/teaching/teaching.swf I think its probably Egyptian or Syrian. She would tell you that its her own made up style. LOL

    I haven't really been dancing long enough to say that I had a style. But I have always been especially drawn to Egyptian style. Her style fits the way I like to dance, and the style I like to watch. Its just A LOT more sophisticated than the way I flop arround LOL.
