Deborah's Belly Dance Classes
Saltanah Studios Teaching Philosophy
Saltanah Studios was founded by studio director and lead instructor, Deborah Newberg, in 2005. Since then, we have offered a creative and alternative approach to teaching Belly Dance at all levels. Classes are small, so individual attention and mutual support are the norm in our “dance family”. Our students are of all ages and dance backgrounds, with varied dance goals, from “just-for-fun-and-exercise” beginners, to those who are engaged in belly dance as a body-mind practice, to those who are training with us to become performers!
Belly Dance Classes include a stretching and strengthening warm-up, Belly Dance technique, rhythm training, choreography and improvisation. We help students to develop physicality, musicality and joyful self-expression through Belly Dance, encouraging the growth and individual expression of each dance student. Students who wish to have the opportunity to perform, and all students can benefit from our many workshops, performances and other events; we have a lot of fun!
