"In my professional opinion , every dancer should study with Nadira at some point in your career. Aside from being an excellent artist herself, in all the years I worked with her, I have always been impressed with how well rounded her students are ....some information you can only acquire by years of experience. Thank you Nadira for a job well done!"
George Sadak - master Egyptian tabla (Dumbek) musician

"Nadira is a beautiful and talented performer and choreographer. Nadira is also a great dance instructor and coach. Belly dance is unique to everyone as we are all different in shapes and sizes as well as where we are coming from. Nadira showed me how to frame and exploring dance postures that compliment my unique body style. She shared many creative ways to own the stage. Nadira is an excellent coach for competition as well as helped guiding you to find yourself in dance."
Roxy Stimpson

"Nadira is one of bellydance's top exponents of this dance form today. Her commitment to the art, technical ability, and constant growth both in her dance and as a woman shows her integrity as an artist. Not only is she beautiful to watch, but a very responsible instructor. I am very proud to have Nadira as a part of my program."
Suhaila Salimpour

"Nadira is not only an incredible performer but is one hell of a teacher and comes to you highly recommended. I’ve taken group classes and private lessons with her and have seen a dramatic improvement in my technique, posture, and showmanship. She’s very honest (hard to find) and has a natural teaching ability. She’s also a sweetheart and has an encouraging spirit"
Malia – Seattle, WA

"In just two classes, I am already experiencing a waking up of pelvic and lower back muscles that have been chronically tight for years! My lower back muscles especially have been typically bad, and not just because of surgery 6 months ago. Your attention to muscle detail, your beliefs in the importance of posture and your friendly manner make you top notch in my book as an instructor."
