Jiya's Review- a student at Ritambhara Sahni Belly Dance

at a

Belly Dance Class in Andheri West

of Belly Dance Institute Mumbai



Hello everyone, My name is Jiya - a student at Ritambhara Belly Dance Class in Andheri West and this is

my review or my testimonial on Ritambhara Sahni as well as her institute namely - Belly Dance Institute

Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni. So here goes ....


Belly dance at 65. Are you surprised ?? But that is true, I as a Bharat Natiyam dancer was trained in a

completely different atmosphere, and then I retired from all activities. In course of time I became

depressed, lonely and without any companion.


It was at a tough period of my life when I saw an Ad in the newspaper regarding Belly dance. I

thought to myself 'let me learn this form of Art' and so I contacted belly dance Institute Mumbai by

Ritambhara Sahni as they had their belly dance class in Andheri West . I spoke to Ritambhara Sahni

herself, she spoke to me for a long time and gave me her time and that completely eased my heart, and

in no time I joined her classes, I can surly say that In a few days I was a changed person, I regained my

confidence and started with my daily chores. My sagging body became firm and strong [ which I thought

was just impossible at 65 ], somewhere within me I was at peace with myself and the more I spoke with

Ritambhara Sahni, the more I felt stronger and stronger everyday. She was very cool, patient in hearing

my voice. She would guide me to do the steps and would give me as much time. In time I was at par

with the other students in her classes. A day came when I looked in the mirror, and i could see

a change, the glow, the coolness on my face depicted in my inner self. I am thankful to Belly Dance

Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni for giving me new a new life at this age. Ritambhara Sahni I can

proudly say you are my daughter because of your guidance I can socialize, meet my friends, attend

gathering and parties with my own age people. Ritambhara Sahni ..This is for you- I shall always remember

you and you will always be an integral part of my life and i am so grateful that you have a

center for belly dance in Andheri West.


When I think of 'Statue of Liberty' I find you at the top of it and conveying to people to get rid of

social stigma and asking each and every young, teenager or older women to learn belly dance because

that is the knowledge which is going to make them powerful and liberate them.

Its all thanks to Ritambhara Sahni and this wonderful Belly Dance Class in Andheri West that I got

featured in the ' Harmony Magazine' where I was written about in a section for ' Activities taken up by

senior citizens'.
