I have a connection with belly
dance from my growing years. Today being a part of Belly dance institute Mumbai by
Ritambhara Sahni for over 9 months, I felt I need to write this down and send it to
Ritambhara as these are my real feelings and thoughts which I do keep telling her in
bits and pieces from time to time at class but penning it down and sending it to her
is what I feel like now. So here is what you can say is my testimonial on Ritambhara
Sahni and Belly Dance institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni.
Roksana's connection with Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni:
Being a part of an Iranian family, music, dance and food has been an integral part
of my growing up. Its a community where age is just a number and everyone gets up to
dance for any occasion and in any place.
Despite loving dance i never formally took up dance until a year ago. As a family we
have seen a lot of professional belly dancing in the middle east and so when i decided
to learn the art of belly dancing amongst the several dance forms, my mum was absolutely
delighted. Unlike many, she understood this as a dance of intense body discipline and feminine grace.
After doing a research online, i came across Ritambhara's belly dance institute and after a
telephonic conversation with Ritambhara i was excited and convinced this was probably the best
place to learn belly dance in all of Mumbai. With years of experience up her sleeve, her institute

pace with Ritambhara who has a knack of driving home the most visually complex techniques in the easiest
After a year of Ritambhara's contagious happiness constituting of two hours of laughter, music and dance,
Ritambhara Sahni's belly dance institute
has become a pivotal part of my week. It's a happy place where age
is just a number and belly dance becomes a passion that teaches you to absolutely adore your body. I feel
the confidence in my body posture with an accentuated grace in the most subtle movements. From the fine
balance struck between the mind and the body to the delicate grace of the hand movements, Ritambhara Sahni's
belly dance institute Mumbai is the complete package for a healthy mind in a healthy body with a happy soul.
