"Ariellah has been a teacher and a mentor for over 15 years. I was in attendance at her first out of state workshop, and I have joined her in the jungles of Costa Rica. The amount of care thought and preparation that she puts into every class is so very evident. Equally evident is the amount of care and concern that she displays for each individual student.  I love that she takes a holistic approach to dance.

 

Each lesson integrates mind, body, and spirit. Her years of consistent practice are evident in her meticulous attention of technique and her ability to articulate and break down complex, layered movements. She is kind but relentless as she meets each person where they are and then challenges them to grow and expand.  She gives of herself freely – without ego – and genuinely roots for student’s success."
