Miraya's words:                                    Pictures of Miraya in action!

"Middle Eastern Dance is a part of my daily life.  I carry the rhythms and movements within my heart at all times.  It sustains me, nourishes me- it feeds my body as well as my soul.  I used the dance to grow as a woman, to give birth to my sons, to heal my body during illness, and now to celebrate each and every day of my life.  I will dance until my last breath here on earth!"

How other dancers experience Miraya:

"I've taken Middle Eastern classes and workshops for many years, and I have to say that Miraya's classes are just about the most fun I've ever had in a dance class.  She has a special gift for making the beginner feel graceful and the advanced feel challenged.  I love the way she manages to incorporate both choreographed routines and improvisation into every class."

"When Miraya lowers herself to the floor, arches her head back to the ground, and shimmies, I feel goosebumps break out all over!"

"Miraya has inspired and challenged me. She is a great teacher and an accomplished dancer. I love watching my master teacher do what she does best. She knows how to work the crowd and present us at our best."
