Audience & Student Reviews
Magnolia has helped and encouraged me in so many ways that words cannot begin to describe. I am grateful for her teaching style, which genuinely comes from the heart. That connection deepens my knowledge and appreciation of dance. Magnolia is more than an instructor: she is thorough as a coach and mentor, and takes a personal interest in my success, leading and guiding all the way, imparting her vast expertise and grace as a dancer with understanding, patience and compassion. I recommend Magnolia to anyone who is serious about progressing confidently in their dance journey!

Magnolia is more than just a skilled dancer, she is also a fantastic teacher. I love to take her workshops because she is enthusiastic and genuine. You can see and feel the joy she gets from sharing her knowledge and anyone who takes one of her workshops is going to learn something incredible.
- Paula (Student)
Magnolia's instruction and comments are clear and honest, without being astringent, and her encouragement and belief in my abilities are infectious. I always look forward to my lessons with her and my confidence, technique, performance, and all around well-being has improved as a product of it. Since the first lesson I had with her, Magnolia has become a vital aspect to my dance and a friend that I greatly cherish.
- Ivana (Student)
Taking lessons with Magnolia was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a dancer. She breaks down technique and puts it back together, gives constructive criticism, and pushed me WAY out of my comfort zone (in a good way!). Expect to be challenged!

Magnolia answered all my questions ahead. She came to the event on time. Her performance was great and all our guests had wonderful time. I will use her and recommend her. Thank you very much, Magnolia!

Magnolia gave an awesome show. I had the location at an odd venue and so I had to give special instructions on where to park and which door to use and everything. She had no problem working with me, plus she even showed up early to make sure she had enough time to get dressed and get ready. It was great that she provided multiple ways to play her music. She brought a CD, emailed me the music, and just in case had a playlist on her cell phone. She was super friendly with a great smile. Both the show and group lesson was great. After her lesson she will take cute pics with you too. All around she was great. If I am ever in need of a belly dancer again, I will for sure use her. Worth every penny. *Thumbs up*

Magnolia's solo and group performances in a full-length belly dance production I attended recently were exceptional. Her fluid relationship with the music is moving. It makes it impossible to take your eyes off her, even in the group numbers. I really want to learn how to dance like she does!!
- Andrea U. (Gala Performance)
Magnolia is a beautiful and graceful dancer who is very entertaining to watch. She uses themes of elegance and mystery with some humor mixed in to create a performance that anybody can enjoy. She is also easy to work with and is a very pleasant person. I highly recommend Magnolia as a dancer and teacher for your entertainment and learning needs!

Magnolia is an excellent performer. I was amazed by how graceful and talented she is. She knows how to pump up the crowd with lots of audience involvement and it doesn't hurt that she looks stunning in her costume.
- Ibrahim A. (Restaurant Performance)
I've seen Magnolia at a number of performances. She's become quite skilled as a dancer by developing her immense talent through hard work. To me, the difference between a mediocre dancer and an extraordinary one is how they show their personality through dance. This is a girl with a fierce spirit and indomitable will. She dances with a fire that is beautiful and ferocious. When she dances, no matter the setting, all eyes are on her.
- Brandon B. (Multiple Performances)
Excellent performance! We enjoyed Magnolia's performance and everyone at the party had an awesome time. Thank you so much.
- Sowmiya R. (Birthday Party)
Magnolia danced for my company event of over 800 people and the crowd was amazed. She is so graceful and dances so beautifully. Her beauty captivated the audience. Thank you so much!
- Mary G. (Private Event)
Not only was she a mesmerizing dancer, but she did a magnificent job of getting the audience engaged. By the time she ended her performance, almost all of our guests were up and dancing. My in-laws and several extended family members, all of whom have seen classically trained belly dancers while living or vacationing in the Middle East, remarked that she was the best belly dancer they'd ever seen. I had wanted a belly dancer at my wedding since I was 5 years old, and Magnolia went above and beyond to make that dream come true. I'm so grateful, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for additional elegance and flair at their next event.

A most magnificent belly dancer, she entertained our party when my wife and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary recently, superb performance, if you have the opportunity to enjoy her presentation please do, elegant and tasteful.
- George H. (Restaurant Performance)
You know how to make belly dancing fun, fluid, and free and still have structure to it. Thank you so much for all the classes. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the fall.
- Sandra B. (Student)
Professional, punctual and one of the best performers I've ever seen. The way she incorporates the crowd into her performance leaves everyone with some great memories. It's been 5 days and people are still talking about you. I would highly recommend her for any occasion that you might be looking for some entertainment for. Magnolia, thank you for making my mother's birthday one that she will never forget. Thanks for the memories.
- Harry Y. (Birthday Party)
Very professional, punctual, great "GRAND" show! Magnolia was a pleasure to work with. She is professional and talented. We requested a "latin spin" to her music choices for a party, and she adapted appropriately. Her grand show kept the audience riveted and 2 days later, they are still talking about it! - Ricardo G. (Brithday Party)
Magnolia was spectacular! Outstanding and mesmerizing performance! Magnolia seemed right at home and she did an excellent job of communicating and interacting with the audience.
- Cedric W. (Private Party)
