Today was the completion of four 90-min private double fan-veil sessions with Masha.
As I am not a trained dancer, and I already knew of Masha's many years of strenuous formal preparation in Ballet, Persian, Egyptian, and other forms of dance, staging, and costuming, I was considerably apprehensive!
Yet Masha was objective, as she was verbally supportive, in teaching to my strengths as well as to my weaknesses.
She deftly took me from my initial awkwardness with the fans to increasingly more intricate hand, arm, foot, and body positioning.
She was gradual and persistent in layering the learning, such that at the completion of the time today, I was choreographing and dancing my own double fan veil piece to music I had selected. Wow! Thank you, Masha!
If you have ever considered learning from an effective, supportive teacher in the proper foundations, and creative aspirations of dance, invest in some class sessions with Masha!
What a great workshop! Challenging and beautiful veil work and gorgeous musical interpretation. Thank you Masha!!!!
I attended a veil choreography workshop with Masha recently. She is a wonderful instructor and a beautiful dancer. I enjoyed her workshop very much, and the choreography she taught was great! I hope I have a chance to dance with her in the future!
" Masha's class is both challenging and fun. She encourages you to do your best and take it a step further and to always view yourself as a performer. Her class focuses on all the different aspects of dance: fitness, posture, presence, rhythm and coherence between the different elements of a choreography. I recommend her for anyone who is really interested in learning the art of raqs sharqi and people looking to perform in the future."
" My experience of Masha's unique teaching style can be best describe in the specifics I was always affected by:
Clarity and simplicity of well balanced communication and direction;
Hollistic in addressing all components of body and form;
Organic diversity that flowed naturally within the musical rhythms;
Loving and gentle directions and corrections.
Masha is always a pleasure"
