What to Expect

Taletha's approach to teaching Belly Dance can be described as enthusiastic and thorough. Her unique teaching style has been praised by students and workshop sponsors alike. Taletha applies what has been coined the, "Taletha Al Badr Immersion Technique," which works to have you dancing right from the start all while explaining and drilling movements and covering dance concepts in ways which cater to many different learning styles.

As a workshop instructor, she finds different ways to approach material that is often old hat to more experienced dancers, giving them a fresh perspective and tools they can pass on to others.

When learning with Taletha expect a work out for both mind and body!
