After a year of Navel Gazers belly dance classes I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with Melusina as a teacher. Her ability to skillfully explain techniques combined with her warmth and humour make every class a pleasure that lifts the spirit. She has total empathy for every student’s level and confidence in their dancing. She corrects us very considerately and clearly loves to see us improve. I have had dozens of dance teachers in other styles over decades and Mel is outstanding among them as well as being a beautiful dancer and soul.
