I took Zohar's classes for six years and stopped only when I moved out of Phoenix. I'd already performed professionally a bit (I'd danced for 6 years before) when I walked into her class for the first time and owe her a great deal. Having made up missed my usual intermediate/advanced classes by attending the beginner group, I've seen how Zohar is able to adapt her instruction so that dancers of different levels can get a lot out of class.
With beginners she teaches technique patiently and thoroughly, and as you advance she begins to transition you into really putting the dance together. I've learned a ton of performance skills from her, though she does not pressure you to perform if it doesn't interest you. She basically gives her intermediate/advanced students a challenge and helps each student work through it, then gives feedback. With a lot of other group classes -- and I've been to a lot -- you get technique but never put it all together beyond a class choreography, but with Zohar you become comfortable with improvisation as you build on your technique. She also encourages you to develop your own style.
It is also worth noting that Zohar has special training to work with women who are pregnant. I danced with her all the way through my pregnancy. I learned a LOT of different abdominal movements as we tried to persuade my breech baby to turn. (My daughter inconsiderately refused, but at least Zohar came to visit me in the hospital after my c-section!) I loved being able to (safely) do this gentle exercise, and I think it helped me stay energized and fit at work even as the third trimester dragged on.
One thing I miss especially, though, are my classmates. The women who studied with me are amazing. There was always a feeling of sisterhood. Because my primary social circle outside of class was mostly math and engineering grad students, I didn't have a whole lot of female friends. I love these ladies! We all bring different prior dance experience and style to class and I feel like I've learned a lot from them, too.
I've had 10 teachers in 4 states and have never taken classes that were so responsive to my needs and goals as a dancer. There is a definite void in my Wednesday nights since I moved away.
