Favorite thing about teaching GroupX?  

I love the Oakland University atmosphere.  Every person that comes into my class has preconceived notions about Belly Dance.

What made you want to teach GroupX?  

The variety of people.  OU’s GroupX provides diversity due to the student and staff population.  I love that a person male or female, young or not so young, athletic or not can come into my class and learn the art form that I love so much; Belly Dance.
