Top Rated Burlesque Dancers Around Ashburn, VA
Working with Priti Gupta-Udeshi was such a refreshing experience! She recently choreographed a wedding dance sequence for the family wedding and was able to cater to dancers of various levels of expertise / style / comfort levels (both both in person and via video) with such ease and elan. Her dance move analogies are hilarious, relatable and so easy to remember. We had a fantastic sequence and practicing for the dance was one of the best memories my family has of the wedding. Thank you Priti.. we miss you now that you moved.
Asala was great! One of the best belly dancers I've seen in the D.C. area. I would definitely hire her again!
Me and my fiance were beginning dancers who wanted to work on our first dance at our wedding. From the beginning, Gonzalo was open to how many lessons we wanted to do and what kind of dance moves we felt comfortable with. He was very flexible with us for timing and always organized. Glad that we worked with him.
The brilliance of Judicita as a wedding choreographer and dance teacher is best conveyed by my husband, Andrew: I am a man who is terrified of dancing. In six weeks, Judicita took my dancing from "baby giraffe immediately after birth" to, as our wedding guests commented, "surprisingly not terrible" and "actually kind of really impressive." I did not want to jump out of a window at any point in the teaching process. Judicita was professional, empathetic, and effective both as a teacher and a choreographer. I am extremely happy with the services she provided and would recommend her in a heartbeat. I proposed to a woman of Puerto Rican/Peruvian background. She lives to dance. I was informed, lovingly and with zero wiggle room, that our first dance at the wedding would involve me doing salsa. Growing up, the blackest nightmares I ever had involved me trying and failing to dancing in front of all of my friends and family. So, choking down the terror, my then-fiancée and I contracted with Judicita to teach us (i.e. me) a choreographed 3-4 minute salsa dance. Judicita is--and I cannot stress this enough--extremely good a teaching. She has all of the normal, fundamental dance instructor skills: she's a talented dancer herself, she's very good at motion analysis and mechanics, and she's able to define and adjust choreography on the fly. But where she truly excels is her raw ability to teach. Rather than the familiar and irritating "Do this. No, like this. Point your toe more. No, like THIS. Watch me AGAIN" style of fussy instruction you get at many salsa rooms, Judicita is genuinely and patiently focused on teaching you to move. "That was great!" says Judicita with what feels like genuine excitement. "If you hold your chin a little higher the spin will be tighter, but you've really got the basic motion down!". She continually explained the "why" behind the motions, and let us learn at our own pace without getting hung up on perfection. We learned exactly what we needed for our dance. More importantly, I didn't feel like I was going to throw up from stress during lessons. I could list out many other positives: her quick and precise decisions on choreography--always listening closely to what we liked and didn't like; her flexibility in dealing with our schedule; her constant positivity and professionalism. In the end, we successfully pulled of an amazing first dance that was exactly what my bride wanted. Was I actually a born dancer? An unpolished diamond in the rough whose amazing skills were simply waiting to be discovered? A modern-day Patrick Swayze, if you will? This is what I'll keep telling myself. But the truth is, the only reason I walked out onto the floor excited, confident, and prepared, instead of nauseous and terrified, is because Judicita guided me there every step of the way. She should be teaching movie stars and professional competition dancers, instead of awkward dudes hoping to impress their partners. But thank God she does.

I am a classically trained dancer of 16 years. My main focus was ballet, modern, jazz and character dance. I was coached by the world renowned Alexander Boitsov and I participated in multiple master classes taught my some of the world's best dance instructors. I am also well versed in burlesque, hip hop, and Latin dance. I have a lot of experience and knowledge about dance to bring to the table and I want to help anyone who is opening to learning something new! Dancing has been my passion since I was a child! I have also grown passionate about helping people and boosting their confidence. I think learning to dance or learning how to better dance is a great confidence booster. It's also an amazing work-out and an excellent way to de-stress!
I hired Razilee to perform for my wife's birthday party and she was incredible! Her dancing we fantastic and she did a great job of getting everyone up to dance. She even danced with the kids and they loved it! We had a few requests and she handled then without issue. We absolutely loved her and she made the event a huge success! We definitely recommend her and will hire her again!
Graceful she is, as she sashays the strength of her flexibility across any stage. Loving the fact that belly dancing is an art of the body I enjoyed seeing Latasha flow with nature as she pulls you into another time zone. Because of love and dedication she has to the art of bellydancing, it will be worth your while to support her and start to experience a piece of heaven.
She was amazing! She was on time and It was soo much fun dancing with her! And she has a very nice personality and positive energy!
Ninakshi Dance studio is run by a young, energetic dance instructor, Nina. She is full of positive energy and has the right motivationt to teach anyone how to do a Bollywood dance. She takes the time to break down every single step so it honestly doesn't matter your experience level. She is great with young students as well as older, there is no skill requirement, or age limit! She endorses a team spirit and instills in each of her students the ability to master the dance skill. The studio itself is well kept and a great location in Silver Spring, MD! Very close to many shopping centers and is easily accessible. I have seen many of Ninakshi's performances and they are all exciting and full of energy; from their dance steps and tricks, to their costumes and props, Ninakshi dance studio definitely puts on a show!
Wow! We made the best choice in Alina as a dance instructor. Dance lessons were my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. I looked forward to it every week and I also loved practicing in between. Alina is a real teacher and choreographer. There is structure to the one hour lesson. We learned basic steps individually with her leading us, then she wove those steps into a dance using our chosen song, then she would make sure we repeated it enough times to commit it to memory and give us recommendations/corrections. In the last 5 minutes of class she had us do the dance one more time full out while she video taped it on my phone. This was so helpful because then if we forgot anything we could go back to the video. Alina was very personable, but I say that she's a real teacher because she knows how to get down to business and make progress within the one hour class. We didn't waste any time and we made so much progress in just 4 classes. My partner was not as enthusiastic as me from the beginning, but my partner said she wished that we had started earlier and booked 10 lessons. I watched my partner's confidence grow over the course of the 4 lessons which was really a bonus for both of us and I attribute that to Alina's guidance and instruction. I am certain also that Alina can choreograph dance after dance even in her sleep. Her mind is filled with dance moves and she's able to quickly and expertly weave them together for the dance. We handed her music at our first lesson that she hadn't had a chance to listen to yet, and she didn't even skip a beat in choreographing the dance. It's impressive. I highly recommend Alina for any couples getting married. You won't be disappointed!!
I recently held a public event to expose the community to the Arab culture and wanted to incorporate belly dancing into the experience. Leyla's show was a perfect fit for my party and the audience LOVED her! The way she engaged the crowd and made them participants in the performance was just phenomenal. Should I get the chance to host another event like this one, I'd hire her all over again. :) Thanks, Leyla! - Aubrey M.

I've seen other belly dancers; and she has been the best one. Other belly dancers seem to all be similar; but not her. Her dancing is unique and beautiful. It seems like her dancing comes from within. She involves the audience and they happily participate. She is awesome!
