My very special student – Pooja – now aspiring to teach and perform with me. I share a very special bond with her – Ritambhara Sahni.
Pooja’s testimonial for Ritambhara Sahni
I have always loved dancing and yet like so many things we love but are too busy and too sceptical to do for one reason or another, training in a dance form always took a back burner. Even when an opportunity arose to actually go for it. I could not find myself connected enough to the dance forms accessible back in 1990s.
The first time I saw belly dance in 2006 on TV (being performed by of course by Shakira) – I was intrigued. The more performances I saw through my limited access to media the more I fell in love with it. The body movements in belly dance are natural to a female’s body. They looked fluid.
Few years hence, the moment I got a breather to pursue my love for belly dance, I browsed for best possible dance classes in Mumbai for belly dancing. My online searches gave few prospective choices, all attractive and accessible. Out of all, Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni stood out for a peculiar reason.
I went through their dance video on Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni Facebook Page. The first and foremost thing to strike me in the video was girls of all sizes and shapes being part of it and given equal attention! The kind of clothes worn by the girls and ladies seemed their choice. No one was forced to either expose or cover up. And yet many girls breaking beauty norms wearing sporting crop tops and showing off a healthy image of body, standing right there in the front row! I liked the way they were free and confident in their body I believe that is what any learnt skill is supported to do to you – liberate you and unify yourself with you seeing this after bombardment of slim compulsory slim girls in the display pictures and advertisements of many dance classes – Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni was my sure choice.
Being in business for past 11 years was itself a testimony to its quality. The quick response on behalf of Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni and explicitly explained all policies is very welcome.
Within few days of admission. I was standing in a well-equipped studio of Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni with patient, funny and talented belly dance teacher Ritambhara Sahni.
Ritambhara Sahni focuses on making you a better dancer with each session. She works on an individual’s technique patiently goes with their pace and motivates at every step. The best quality of Ritambhara Sahni I feel is the space she creates in the dance studio. Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni sees girls and women joining from all walks of life and diverse age groups. Ritambhara sahni amalgamates them into a team. A team where every team member is ready to improve you as a dancer. I absolutely enjoyed the process of learning because of this team of batch mates who help you to be a better dancer and vice versa. It leaves you with profound positivity. In Ritambhara’s words – self improvisation takes its time and is priceless.
The spirit that Ritambhara Sahni as a teacher inculcates in her students is to keep learning and perfect themselves with a process of self-improvisation and self-realization with her 100 percent guidance to aspire as a belly dance artist. I have realized that I have achieved a lot with self-realization.
Learning belly dancing unifies you with your body. Perfecting a dance technique increasing range of your body movements.
Understanding the rhythm all requires mind and body to be in sync. I found it meditative and an aid to strengthen the focus.
Also, I have realized at Ritambhara Sahni Belly Dance Classes in Mumbai that i have found much love in my belly dance belt. My belly dancing belt makes me feel as ‘one’ with belly dancing. It makes me feel ‘perfect’ when i belly dance. Belly dancing belts \ belly dancing coin hip scarves sure do rope you closer to this dance form. All my batch mates and me agree that belly dance belts \ belly dance coin hip scarves bind you in with belly dance much faster and make you feel – ‘what real belly dancing is all about’ . Ritambhara belly dance class in Mumbai is surly a great place to discover new things about yourself i must say here in my review / testimonial on Ritambhara Sahni Belly Dance Institute Mumbai.
Past few months I have now started as an assistant trainer with Belly Dancing Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni. It is correctly said that when you teach someone you learn too. All the practices, time and effort I put in to perfect myself before every class undoubtedly makes me a better dancer. It is joy to see when girls you train break their barriers each time.
There is still a lot to learn in belly dancing. Looking forward to shimmy my way ahead with Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni.
