Hi! I just wanted to express how much I love taking your classes. I feel like I finally have a grasp on belly dancing and I have an easier time understanding the movement. It's addicting; I'm belly rolling everywhere! I recommend you any time someone is looking to get into belly dance. I remember seeing you for years at the Witch Fest downtown and being inspired. Wishing you all the best!

    "I've been a student of Kris since February 2019. On my first day of class, Kris made me feel so welcomed and comfortable doing bellydance, as I was a new student to dance in general. I always look forward to attending each of her classes because she is able to transfer her love and passionate energy for dance into her students. Kris always comes up with creative new moves and coordinates it with a catchy playlist that gets our hips shimmying and shoulders rockin'."
