About a year ago I was newly separated, learning how to be a single Mother, working A LOT, and helping to take care of my ill Grandmother. Everything was new in my life. I saw that there were going to be belly dance classes at the Cardio Club, and everything else was new in my life, so I thought "what the heck" I took years of dance in the past, and had been wanting to dance again, but my life had become so crazy. It seemed crazy!!! BUT something was pulling me to that class. So, I signed up. Little did I know, I would meet an amazing new teacher, wonderful friends that quickly became family, and feel like a new renewed woman!! Hjordis is an amazing teacher, performer and friend!! The moment you step into that room you feel welcomed!! She always strives to work with each individuals way of learning (which was very new to me in the dance world) and you WILL learn, you will laugh, you will become addicted to this beautiful form of expression and to Hjordis herself!! I feel a true sense of family and joy EVERY time I walk into those classes, and I've made connections that I believe will last a life time!! My body feels better, my mental and emotional state feel better, and I totally owe that to Hjordis, and her classes!!!
