" I had the pleasure of learning to Belly Dance
thanks to Sweet Magic Studio! In one fantastic hour,
Kareena enthusiastically taught 15 of my best girlfriends

more difficult combinations. I can't wait to do it again!

Welcoming, intuitive, non-competitive, experienced and knowledgeable teacher. I'm loosening up beyond what I ever imagined, and it's helping me in other kinds of dance. Plus, I like the atmosphere. I walked in one cold, dark, December night after thinking about trying bellydance for about two years, and seven months later . . . much more confidence and better tone.

I have been attending Sunday Belly Dancing classes with Kareena for a year and three months. I love it. It is a bit of a drive for me every week but it is worth it. I have chronic back problems and Kareena works with me to attain correct posture. She believes taking care of the entire body. Strengthen my core helps me to control and weight and my stress level. Come by and watch and you will be hooked like I was.

As a Christmas gift and New Year's resolution, I decided
to enroll in the six-week beginners belly dancing
classes at Sweet Magic Studio on Saturdays. After
the first class on January 6, I was very impressed
and instantly captivated.

Kareena is a wonderful instructor who is highly
knowledgeable, caring, patient and enthusiastic
about teaching.

The classes are so much fun and are very addictive!
Even though I only had three sessions so far, I can't
wait for the next weekend and look forward to
going to the next class and learn something new.
Each class has been different and unique.

The classes are very affordable and have
convenient evening or weekend hours.
In fact after the six-week sessions are over, I am
thinking of getting the pass for 15 classes so I can
go on Saturdays and Sundays

I started to take belly dance lessons with Kareena a few months ago. I love the sensuality of belly dance. Kareena's style of teaching is very soothing and relaxing. Kareena makes you feel graceful, sexy and classy. I love Kareena's professionalism. You will very much enjoy taking classes with Kareena no matter if you are a beginner or advanced dancer. I absolutely recommend to come and try one of her classes.

Sweet magic studio was exactly what it promises to be,
a place where your body immediately feels controlled
and poised, ready to move. Your mind becomes inspired
by an amazing woman who leads you through poses that
must begin from the inside in order to see the physical
movement on the outside. As a yoga instructor I found
belly dancing to be a much more spiritual and internal
exploration than I was assuming it would be, but my abs
killed me the next day, so either way I'm happy!
Thanks Kareena!

Every Wednesday night I head to the city for
the one of the most exciting activities of my busy
week: belly-dancing with Kareena!

Combining classic moves and modern choreography,
Kareena leads our aspiring group into sexy hip sways,
body shimmy, and veil swirls, all accompanied by spell-
binding music. The class is not only about seductive moves,
though. Kareena's routines include proper warm-ups and
movements that include the whole body.

She focuses on developing flexibility and strength.
Also, step-by-step instruction makes the
movements easy to follow, whether you are a
beginner or more advanced student.

When I finally gathered the courage to try belly dancing
I found Sweet Magic Studio.

While I may not always feel comfortable with the
skin I'm in,I have,thanks to Kareena's patience,
words of encouragement,and enthusiasm for dance
learned that I CAN move gracefully.

I CAN embrace the sensuosness of my physical self
and be more accepting of my curves.

I have also dropped in on her yoga classes and
always come out refreshed and feeling a little more
at peace with my physical self.

We should all have Kareena's zest for living
and moving through life as well as she does.
Kareena is a fantastic teacher.
