Client Testimonials

Wedding & Event Clients:

“Just had Tava and 2 of her students attend my brother’s wedding, the wedding was Egyptian/Italian but I must say Tava was THE HIT.

Very delightful, engaging and everyone was involved. I know I will invite Tava again and again to as many events as I can. The experience was a pleasure and the communication and arrangement was very easy and smooth.” – Andy A. (New Canaan, CT)

Tava has been entertaining the seniors of Darien for three years. She has always been very well received. Tava is educational as she performs. We will have her back every year! – Marcy R. (Darien, CT)

“Wow, you exceeded my expectations in every way. I think my cheeks are sore from smiling and my hands sore from clapping. Thank you so much Tava!” -Mary D. (Fairfield, CT)

“Dancer”, “Teacher”, “Choreographer”….Tava has many titles, but probably the most impressive title is “Student”. Despite such vast and varied experience as a performer and instructor, Tava continues to train regularly to deepen not only her technique, but her understanding of the rich history and cultures this dance comes from. And because of her relentless commitment to keep learning, she shines as one of the most humble and authentic dancers performing. Her beauty, integrity, and true love and devotion to this artform shine brighter than the most crystal-clad costume. Whether looking to hire a breathtaking performer for your event, or if you are looking for one of the warmest, most knowledgeable, and most welcoming teachers to take a class with, truly look no further. Tava has substance behind the sparkles.” Christine R. (Stratford, CT)

“When I started bellydancing with Tava in 2009, I didn’t know how much my experiences with her would shape and improve my life for the better. More than just learning about both the physical and cultural anatomy of bellydance, Tava introduced me to an amazing and supportive community, nurtured my individual strengths, and compassionately guided me through personal transformations that have benefited my life beyond just my dance career. Years later and a continent apart, her words still give me inspiration, insight, and strength that make my experiences with Improvisational and Tribal Fusion style bellydance richer, and my relationships to my dance community more fulfilling.”
-Eliot (CA & CT)

“Tava is an incredibly dedicated teacher, performer, and mentor. Her classes take into account the various levels in the room, and she makes sure to challenge all of her students. She covers not only technique, but also performance and interpretation. Tava’s level of artistry and her knowledge of the variations between different culture’s approaches to middle-eastern dance make her performances breathtaking and her lessons enriching and engaging. Her thorough education is apparent in the care that she approaches her dance with. As her student, Tava has given me insight into the professional world of belly dance, as well as taught me about the history, music, and even the anatomy of what makes up the movements of our dance. She is a kind soul, a beautiful dancer, and a wonderful mentor, and I am proud to study with her.”
-Kia (Stamford, CT)
