Jiya's Review- a student at Ritambhara Sahni Belly Dance
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
Belly dance classes in mumbai run by Ritambhara Sahni is definately the key to liberty and empowernment.
Also I must add that I am so glad you have a belly dance class in Andheri West area as
