I’ve never lost so many calories laughing!
I've not encountered any dance class so enjoyable or inspiring during the time I've been in Manchester. Fiona Smith
Zehara has taken belly dancing to a different level, and brings her own skill and imagination into every class she teaches. I have tried other classes on the odd times she has been away and they are slow and lack the Zehara factor. Her classes are so energetic that with the stresses of life you can go in feeling worn out and come out rejuvenated and this keeps you going until the next week Nikki Unger
Well after a stressful day, I can't wait to get to class tonight. Nothing like a bit of shimmying to shake those blues away! By going to the classes I've also lost half a stone in January, and still ate chocolate! I would urge anyone to come to the class and give it a go. I'll guarantee several things...you will leave with a smile and your face, eager to come back for more, and finally become a huge fan of Zehara.....like me xxx Louise Lundgren
Loved tonight's class at Parr's Wood; every cell and synapse buzzing -
Had my first lesson tonight, absolutely loved it! See you next week -

I used to be a member of a gym but found that I wasn’t reaching my goals as I was unmotivated (like many of us) and wanted to find a fun way to keep fit. Before my 1st session I had all the usual concerns of what should I wear, will I be able to keep up etc but upon arriving all my concerns disappeared because Zehara was friendly and approachable and made me feel very welcome, the music started and I just went with the flow.

Zeharas dance is unique and upbeat she is passionate about what she does and encourages everyone to join in and share her love of dancing. I’ve been hooked ever since and no longer require the gym as this keeps me fit whilst having fun with fantastic people, it also gives me a chance to let my hair down and feel liberated.
I have never attended any other classes before that leave me feeling so positive and full of energy. Come along and give it ago!!
Just a quick note to say I really enjoyed it last night – it was great to do a few of the old ones – unfortunately I forget most of them the minute I walk out of the door – but when you play them again, it’s like “Oh yes I remember that one”.
But I also LOVED the new “Egyptian” one – and the music for that one too! It reminded
me that I never did try the belly dancing so maybe I’ll have to try that on a Tuesday
night – I need to work on my wiggle and sharpen up my shimmy -
Thanks again for a great, FUN workout!
I attended your zumba class yesterday evening and i just wanted to say how much
fun me and my friend had! in fact we are going to start coming to your belly dance
class on a tuesday and zumba on a thursday! I have never really enjoyed dance classes
as i have 2 left feet but i loved zumba! Claire -
Let me tell you something about a year and half ago I had to have a major operation and nearly died on the operating table. I had fibroid tumours one the size of a 25 week baby, so had to have a hysterectomy. Thankfully I have lived to tell the tale. I am now getting back to good health and fitness and with swimming and the help of your classes I have lost nearly 4 stone. Your classes are brilliant and a great workout.
Hi Zehara, Thank you for an excellent class tonight -
Hi Nicki, Really enjoyed last nights session, you're dancing is very addictive!! -
Hiya, Been to your classes a few times and LOVED them so much Gillian x
