“There are good dancers who know
all the ‘right’ bellydance
moves and can pull off a good show.
Then there are those dancers who know all the ‘right’ moves
combine them with a true ‘feeling’ for the music, history
of the Middle East. When a dancer with ‘feeling’ performs,
the entire audience gets to go on a journey. In this case, the journey
is to far away places of Arabia and the dancer is Vilia.”

“…a dancer of many dimensions.
Her forte is to be that of choreographer.
Her work is excellent. Vilia is a tall, beautiful, willowy blonde. An
dancer and wonderful to be around…Her dancing is truly an inspiration.”

”Her power embraces light as a
feather moves, while her isolations are tight
and crisp. Her style is to accept you as a dancer and instantly you feel
as if you have been taking classes for weeks.
Vilia, being statuesque, makes seeing the moves easy and clear.
Her choices in music are cutting edge and my most favorite talent is her
gift of choreography. I would recommend students
of all phases in their learning process to try one of her class sessions.
I accidentally ran into her as a substitute teacher and have considered
to be a true gift to my practice in the art of bellydance.”

I really love your classes!
You are such a beautiful, fun, elegant, graceful dancer--You're inspiring
