"Keti's A-Z system is one of the best constructed syllabuses I have seen in any form of dance education. She has to be one of the finest teachers of this genre in the world. Her work is thoughtful and carefully graded, each step builds on previous ones. "
"Keti's courses always exceed my high expectations. She always brings fresh ideas and invaluable dimensions to her timeless routines. As an Egyptian contemporary dance graduate, I appreciate her insight, and have attended several of her live music training events in Egypt."
"I've taken many workshops with great teachers, but Keti's A-Z Courses were the most in-depth. I feel enriched! These courses gave me so much to share with my students - history, culture, musicality and so many new routines for my choreos."

“I'd been bellydancing for years but felt really self conscious in free dance. Keti's A-Z has come as a breath of fresh air! I apply it to free dance and am no longer left wondering, I just go with the flow. It's really exciting to play with and give it my own personal twist. I'd recommend it for beginners or advanced dancers, there's so much fun to be had!”
"Keti has created insightful methodology that continues to inspire dance teachers and students worldwide. I love how the A-Z Original and Advanced work together and progress. At a deeper level, the whole process has been a healing journey for me."

"A-Z Bellydance has helped dancers worldwide develop and hone their craft through a logical, aesthetic approach to choreography. It is also an excellent teaching tool that provides endless opportunities for instruction at all levels."
"I noticed such a difference in my dancing since studying with Keti in NYC, I always refer to her A-Z routines, and they have become a foundation for my dancing. I don't think I'd be where I am today as a dancer if I'd not studied with her. Thank you!"
"I was always thirsty for knowledge and how to become a better performer and teacher. This course helped me to improve my teaching in more structured manner, adding depth and energy to my class. It also helped me to reinforce what energy to be focused and the important element which tends to get lost while performing. Thank you so much for the incredible course!"
"The new A-Z and Somatics have refreshed the joy I feel when dancing and given me a new awareness and a deeper sense of connection within my body and to the dance. Its very grounded and informs my teaching & dance expression. Thank you."
"Keti's structure allows for self-exploration and personal integration. I'm cultivating a deeper understanding of the body-self. From day one I began noticing the distinct qualities of my movements within my both dance practice and every day life."
"It helped me learn to respond to music to improvise, sensing my dancing more fully. I highly recommend Keti's training to deepen connection between music & movement. Thank you Keti for this beautiful program!"
"As a bellydancer for 25 years, A-Z & Somatics has given me a new sense of internal focus in movement. I'm sensing my dance more naturally through space and integrating various qualities of movement. It aids students to sense the moves of bellydance with more ease."
"A-Z is a wealth of information for Oriental Dance. I love how its organized; with technique, history, musicality & artistry. Before A-Z, I was lacking in choreographic skills, but now I feel confident to choreograph as well as improvise. In class its a gem for inspiration, combos & choreos. Keti's support made a difference to my learning. Thank you!"
"I find myself amazed at how Keti manages to teach, inspire and challenge students at any level. I feel included, involved, and ultimately, I feel I am really dancing. She taps into the student's level of individual ability so the student comes away with ownership of the dance. Thank you for creating A-Z Bellydance and for continuing to teach with inspiration."
"Of all the teaching methods I have experienced I have always found Keti's A-Z Bellydance the easiest to follow, and the most inspirational with visual imagery to help remember the steps and movements."
"I have been using A-Z in my classes with over 200 students for years now, from performers to participants with special needs, A-Z makes it easy for everyone to enjoy dancing at any level! I have also enjoyed connecting with so many beautiful sisters in dance around the world through A-Z, it has really expanded my dance world."
"Learning the A-Z Bellydance format was a game changer as a teacher, and for my students, providing a solid, yet flexible methodology upon which to build skills, as well as providing a solid cultural and historical foundation to the dance. As a mind body fitness teacher as well, I have integrated Somatic principles both into my dance teaching, and my mind body based classes. It has assisted me in the development of new mind body based programs, and my clients have enjoyed feeling the movements in their body in new and deeper ways.”
