“I would highly recommend this concise but comprehensive course on Turkish Roma dance! Iana not only goes over the basic steps, but also explores variations of these moves and puts them into practice with several different combination drills.

I was able to learn many of the nuances that define this form of dance after practicing the combinations in this course. I also feel that I hold a better understanding of the music and feel more confident about creating my own Turkish Romani style combos and choreographies!”
