~Jessica Minghinelli, dance student

“I began ATS classes with Lauramaeve in February 2011, and to be honest I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t know anything about American Tribal Style belly dance  and was a little nervous before my first class.  Laura really makes you feel at ease and after a nice warm up, gets you dancing straight away which makes for a really fun class environment.  She breaks the moves down so they are easier to follow and gives each dancer special attention so that everyone is at the same level.   The classes are really fun and interactive and it’s great to be dancing from the very first class, you really feel like a dancer.  ATS is a truly beautiful dance and I am so glad I discovered it and started taking the classes, it has increased my energy levels and has really boosted my confidence.  To anyone who is unsure about taking the classes, I say do it! You won’t regret it.”
