-Cassandra Al Warda- Wind and Sand Dance Company, Cleveland OH

Leyla Soleil is an award-winning dancer, Instructor, Choreographer, and performer, and it is so much fun to take classes with her! I felt that I got wonderful fitness conditioning and learned beautiful technique while studying there. Not only is she extremely knowledgable in the art of Raqs Sharki and both Egyptian and American styles of Cabaret bellydance, but she has an extensive ballet/jazz background that she incorporates for a wholistic education for the serious dancer and beginner alike. Her training improves technique, flexibility, and dance knowledge, and is great fun, as well!
