Barb has only been my teacher for a short while, my cousin brought me to a class and I fell in love w/this studio and vibe! Barb is My Dance Angel not just a teacher!!! You will leave there feeling fantastic and want to go learn more. She's an Angel to be able to teach and have the patience to help me and others until your able to get it right, in a comfortable setting! I'm not good at following directions...ask anyone...but Barb "My Dance Angel" has been 1 of the Very Few people that can really guide, follow, keep my attention (which is very hard to do) and Listen to her while I'm still having fun and getting great workout! Not to mention you get to learn from the Best Dance teacher I've met but your in a very stunning, soothing and relaxing studio on the water. Just thinking of the aura at The Dancing Spirit Studio makes me want to go dance now....Thanks My Dance Angel!!!See MoreRead Less"

Kim - I've never been called a " dance angel " before. I'm happy Jenn brought you to class and that together you are learning a lot about the dance while having fun. You have a special connection to each other . I hope you love dancing in the woods as much as you love dancing on the sea. Thank you ox Barbara

My cousin introduced me to Barbara and her class. I'm very glad she did, now I see why she loves going to Barb's class so much as I now do myself. Barb is a fantastic teacher, dancer and person! She has a gift for this and makes teaching the art of Belly Dance fun and rewarding and more! Not to mention it's a beautiful, comfortable and relaxing environment. Barb has the patience and gentle way of teaching you that makes you comfortable and also makes her my 'Dance Angel'! Since going to Barb's class my body feels better, become more centered and my posture has improved along w/other positive changes. Thanks Barb for having the patience to teach me to get these moves down right and for the great workout and routines you show us!!!!See MoreRead Less"

Barbara is an incredible and fantastic jewel of a teacher, tucked away in a tiny corner of picturesque Tiverton, RI. Her studio brings color, vibrance and good energy as all who enter the mysterious and yet splendiferous world of belly dance are drawn into her world and become enamored by her incredible teaching style as well as her amazing dance techniques. She is a unique dancer who is able to fuse many styles of music and dance while making them flow with a rhythm as smooth as the ocean waves. She offers so many classes and is the only one of her kind in our area, not taking the opportunity to shimmy on in through her beautiful, colorful doors would truly be one's loss.See MoreRead Less"

Lana was a truly wonderful student to work with.She grew me as a teacher always asking challenging and detailed questions. Together we explored Belly Dance from the inside out working with her beautiful music choices, love for poetry and her extensive knowledge of Greek history and culture

Barbara is a ubiquitous dance presence in Tiverton Ri and the surrounding area, running a Dance Studio for decades and performing extensively with her students and in solo with musicians. When I moved here a decae ago someone told I ought meet "The Dance Lady" Barbara as that is my professional field.
Barbara generously creates fund raisers in the community. I performed solos in one she danced in and directed. She is generous with her talent, energy and time.
Certainly she is a unique belly dancer, trained in many forms of dance and fitness.
