Shay is perfect for beginners and experienced. I saw Shay dance and took a workshop from her when I was still finding out what tribal bellydance was. She has a way of breaking the moves down so that everyone can get it. Her classes are fun and she tries to get to know you rather than just teach you which makes you feel wanted there. She plays fun music and makes you want to move even if you feel like a slug that day. Anyone interested in tribal bellydance should definitely check out her classes and you may get hooked.
