Bellydance & Folklore Workshops
A firm believer in bringing out your own unique style & personality while honoring the feelings and culture of Egyptian dance, Žana is constantly improving her own skills to ensure she gives her students the best quality instruction. Never too selfish to share her knowledge, she often cites her own previous instructors (60 & counting!) and provides her students with more than just a set of moves, but also the cultural context and reasoning behind them. Žana always allows students to videotape choreographies for their own personal practice and even lets them download her detailed workshop notes.
Workshops can be taught in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, & Bosnian.
