Andalee was very charming and professional and a great personality. I would not hesitate in having Andalee perform again in the future.

Student

Andalee is always pleasant and very positive. She’s encouraging and reassuring, which I’ve appreciated since I’m not always confident in my belly dance skills. But thanks to her, I performed for the first time at a belly dance event, and it was a blast!

Sigrun

Student

Andalee is an excellent and patient teacher. I have taken several of her classes and will continue to take more. She is very encouraging and makes belly dancing fun.

Andalee makes even the clumsiest of students feel at ease and able to master the art of belly dance. She creates a positive atmosphere full of encouragement. Loved having her at my bachelorette party! What a great thing for woman of all backgrounds to enjoy. She is a true professional.

Andalee danced at my book group for my friend Betsy’s birthday! It was a real treat to have a dancer come and perform! Andalee was beautiful and professional, and everyone enjoyed her wonderful performance! Her appearance at book group has set the bar high.

Nikki

Student

I’ve been studying with Andalee for over six months now and I’ve already learned so much. More importantly, I’ve enjoyed every minute! Andalee is extremely knowledgeable in oriental dance (belly dance) and makes each class challenging yet fun. And she’s a beautiful dancer. I’ll definitely continue taking her classes as long as they’re offered and would recommend them to anyone.

Client

She was such a sweetie, we didn’t have the turn out that we were hoping for but being the professional that she is she gave the lesson to three of us. Those of us that took the lesson had fun with it and she was a good sport with our goofiness. The dance she gave with enjoyed by everyone and I would ask her back. Thank you Andalee! We had a good time!

Kathryn

Client

Andalee warmed up to our party very quickly and danced with much zest and experience. She gave a wonderful performance. After eight to ten minutes of performing, she quickly tried to engage our guest into getting up and being a part of the act. Four of our guest participated in the dance and enjoyed the fun of trying to duplicate the steps. I highly recommend Andalee for anyone who is seeking a Belly Dancer with playfulness and energy.
