Quotes from seminar attendees:
“Aziza Nawal was exceptional as a clear and concise instructor. I felt she taught us as much in those 4 short hours as I have gotten in other 6 (or more) hour seminars. Also, on an individual basis, she was such fun to visit with…. treating experienced and rank beginning dancers with equal respect and friendliness. I would mark her high on my list to take another seminar from.” – (Tulsa, OK)
“I wish every seminar instructor provided the class with such a thorough and complete package. I think you will probably gain a great reputation for teaching such and informative and complete seminar!” – (Dallas, TX)
“I felt like I came back from Tulsa not only having learned a new choreography, but also with a better understanding of how to interpret music. “ – (St. Louis, MO)
