• “Khalida is one of the most inspiring people I’ve met. Her performances never fail to amaze me. She has turned me speechless with introvert and emotional dances as well as with powerful dances, bursting with exciting energy. She is also an excellent teacher/coach. As a person, Khalida is sweet, very generous and funny to boot! If you get the chance to dance with her or just to hang out, don’t hesitate, you won’t be sorry :-) If that’s not quite an option…. get her on DVD! :-)”

  • “Khalida is one of the few oriental dancers who manage to combine natural grace with solid technique and musicality. Her passion is strong, her emotions are real, and her teaching has but one trademark: quality in every detail!“

  • “She’s like a bellydance-butterfly! Graceful, elegant and great technique! I love her kindness, sense of humor and her generosity in sharing her passion for this art! She inspires me, not only in dancing but also in life!”

  • “Khalida is one of my biggest dance inspirations. Her performances are filled with grace and charm. Her teaching style is passionate and giving. Her personality is sincere and humble. She truly is a unique gift to the community of Oriental Dance.”

  • “Thank you so much for your inspiration, and letting us in on your tips and tricks for performance and life in general. I am thankful for your feedback and feel I have grown in dancing, mind and confidence throughout your class”

  • “Up until now I’ve attended a couple of workshops and masterclasses taught by Khalida and I can only say one thing: “Waaw”! Not only is she a very pleasant person and teacher with a lot of humor, she also really knows what she’s talking about. Khalida sees every little detail and knows just how to explain things so that you not only understand it in your mind, but you can feel it, too. With a few tricks, tips and a lot of fun she manages to feed you her great passion for the dance. She’s a true inspiration for me – In the future I hope to dance a whole…

  • “Looking back, I was a baby dancer when I took my first class with Khalida. I had been taking classes for several years and figured I pretty much knew everything there was to know. Boy, was I wrong :-) Khalida’s classes are a fun mixture of dance, technique, conditioning (ouch!), styling and music/cultural background. She was the first teacher who encouraged me to take workshops and study with as much teachers as I possibly can. She introduced me to the local bellydance community I love so much today. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be the dancer I am today if it wasn’t for her. Since she moved to Germany,…

  • “Khalida just loves to share all her knowledge with fellow dancers and that makes her a world class teacher in my book. I love her cheerful femininity and her excellent technique. She blows my mind every single time.”

  • Happy Friday! I wanted to end my first week back on a super happy note and reminisce about a few of the ”Epic Things I Learned” in 2013. The first thing that comes to mind is a 3-day private Veil Intensive I booked with Khalida in May. I’m not exaggerating AT ALL when I say I learned so much that I *still* haven’t processed everything! Not only did we work on technique and choreography, but she gave me powerful insight into posture, stage dynamics and transitions that no one else has ever revealed to me. I had so many ”aha!” moments! So yeah… thank you Khalida! To anyone reading this,…
