A review / testimonial by our student and performer at our belly dance show- Hip-nosis Mumbai - Tehrat Irani---
Fans of belly dance and tribal fusion belly dance were treated to a wonderful m√Člange of both of these dance forms when choreographer and  belly dancer Ritambhara sahni mam presented examples of her choreography at her belly dance class in Mumbai - Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni this past year each week. The compilation of her works, entitled “Belly Dance To Bliss,” had amazing choreographies which would actually bring you to a state of bliss. Each piece of choreography was a magical experience when belly dancing to it with my belly dance belt. The belly dance choreography was so amazing and was used in our show Hip-nosis Mumbai. It felt great to belly dance together with so many females sharing one stage at our belly dance show by Belly dance Institute Mumbai - Hip-nosis Mumbai. The chimes of so many belly dance belts creates that Godly magic when so many strong females come together to belly dance on one stage. The costumes and attire on each and every female simply looked so Godess like and when they shimmied together with their belly dance belts on the Mumbai stage , it was an experience to remember. Ritambhara Sahni mam has been teaching belly dance and choreography at her institute Ritambhara Sahni's Belly Dance Institute Mumbai since 2005, and has also done belly dance workshops which were not so much popularised since 2001 when she use to sucessfully run her institute Ritambhara Sahni's Institute For the Performing arts. This year once again the institute is teaching a belly dance and tribal fusion belly dance and helping the students gear up for their show Hip-nosis Mumbai - Go Solo.Yes this time its just a solo performance and im so excited. I have my belly dance belt on just all the time at home and i cant stop belly dancing and practicing my piece of choreography to perform. I love the stage and just cant wait to wear my costume and belly dance belt and perform on stage.

Another Review / Testimonial from our belly dance student and performer at our belly dance class in Mumbai. - Sameena Dixit

The showcase at the Hip-nosis Mumbai by Belly dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahani, for “Belly Dance,” exhibited 12 beautifully choreographed belly dance sequences by Ritambhara Sahani mam. Each choreography drawing to different degrees on her strong background in both belly dance and tribal fusion belly dance. The first choreography - 'belly dance to bliss' set to a trans beats of Arabic belly dance music, was a fluid, energetic mix of belly dance and drum solo belly dance techniques, with a significant amount of creative belly dance floorwork. The piece showed off the amazing strength and flexibility of the belly dancers, who clearly seemed to be enjoying themselves shimming away to glory in their beautiful Belly Dance belts at Mumbai's 1st ever belly dance show. The Belly Dance Belts added a new and young life to the choregraphy along with the belly dance costumes.The second piece of belly dance choreography by Ritambhara Sahni, ''Belly dancing angels'',” was definitely one of the highlights of the show. The work is strongly modern in terms of progressive belly dance and consisted of small storie of five strong females - one of them being me - it was actually my story as well which Ritambhara Sahni mam put so well into her belly dance choregraphy and used the jingles of the belly dance belt so aptly on stage to every beat . Ritambhara Sahni mam is great artistic director i must say and being a photo journalist , i only look at her in the most artistic ways. 'Belly Dance Angels' is an inspiring piece of modern belly dance that illustrates Ritambhara Sahni's talent immensely as a choreographer i must say in translating seemingly static forms into ones with belly dance energy and purpose. The first four belly dance sequences were  set to new age belly dance  music, focus on the women’s preparations for the events. They emphasize contained strength and power, with the belly dancers moving slowly, crisply, and deliberately. Belly Dance Belts , Veils, and Finger Cymbals are used as props to emphasize the belly dance art forms and shapes assumed by the women as they prepared for the evening at belly dance institute Mumbai.

  2. I joined Ritambharas belly dance institute with no prior dance experience and as stiff as a post. The first few days were a huge struggle and I began to feel this was a crazy idea. Not everybody can paint on instinct like I do and so maybe I cant dance like they do. Well so I thought. Ritambhara can make anyone dance and flex the stiffest muscle. With a gregarious personality and a genuinely happy person, her classes are alot of fun. An incredibly graceful danseuse with alot of experience up her sleeve I am always so grateful I began dancing under her expertise. She has a great way of explaining every step and will tell it to you in a way that will not make you forget easily. A fantastic teacher and an incredible person I`m glad I got to know her and be a part of this institute

  3. My mum enrolled me at Ritambhara Sahni's Belly Dance Institute Mumbai at the age of 12. Not just to learn about dance but to build confidence. I have fallen in love with dance since then and my dance family - Ritambhara Sahni's Institute. In the past 9 years I have progressed from that beginner class to the competitive team and I have been given the opportunity to assist along side the instructors and work with the younger dancers. The balance of fun and discipline is just right i would say here in my review at this belly dance class in Mumbai.The wonderful team of instructors under the mentorship of Ritambhara Sahani really care about the students while helping them reach their potential in a fun loving way. Also in my testimonial here i would like to say that Belly dance at belly dance institute Mumbai has allowed me to experience success as a belly dancer but also learn that hard work is necessary to gain success. I have watched my sister and her many dance friends over the years at Ritambhara Sahni's belly dance classes in Mumbai. They have not only become amazing belly dancers but responsible, caring and confident young individuals. Also i so love and worship my belly dance belt that Ritambhara Sahni mam and her team of instructors help me choose.Belly dance belts are so amazing to belly dance with. So in my testimonial here i would like to thank everyone at Belly Dance Institute Mumbai for all you do. Looking forward to a lifetime of dance and belly dance with all of you at the best belly dance class in Mumbai - Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni" I have also learnt and realized that belly dance can also be therapy. Some days I may only want to belly dance non stop, but by the end of a session at Ritambhara Sahni's belly dance classes in Mumbai, I’ve forgotten the worries of the day and have learned and gained something new. Have attented belly dance sessions at all her centers- be it Colaba, Bandra , Khar or Andheri, the feeling is awesome. The instructors who who teach are grounded, thoughtful, considerate and so very forgiving of whatever worries we students might bring. Their patience inspires me, their intensity encourages me, and their laughter uplifts me in ways I never anticipated when I first walked through that door at belly dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni when i was 12 years old.

  4. It was great to read this and i am always so happy to read all your posts - Ritambhara mam. I have to say that Ritambhara Sahni's belly dance classes in Mumbai make me really happy and so do you - Ritambhara Mam. Having read a few reviews and testimonials here of the students , i do feel like sharing my review or testimonial here as well in the form of all that i have experienced and i feel this is a great opportunity here to do so as I’m sure you would definitely read this and so many others. When I walked into Belly Dance Institute Mumbai I was like a creatively-crippled bird...and from the moment class begun, Ritambhara Sahni guided and inspired me through each step, there is truly so much more that really occurs....I was supported to open my wings! And now I feel as if I am flying again...I use to dance avidly in the past and after years of injury and other dedication, I have returned to my first love....dancing and expressing through movement. The entire environment and classmates fill my heart with joy...I feel we at Belly Dance Institute Mumbai by Ritambhara Sahni celebrate LIFE and the choice to 'move' through many things...and this movement is healing...and has become a peaceful centering of my soul. Besides the 'dance' and amazing friendships & company, the costuming, discipline, and education of dance has also fueled new creative avenues! I am extremely grateful to Ritambhara Sahni's belly dance institute Mumbai. Also we all batch mates are so crazy about our belly dancing belts as well and we are just happy to have discovered belly dance belts. Wearing a belly dance belt to belly dance is such a wonderful feeling of fulfillment with the dance art. In my opinion belly dancing with a belly dancing belt gives me a feeling of fulfillment and accomplishment. Ritambhara Sahani mam allows all her students to attend at all her centers to perfect ourselves better, be it Colaba, Bandra , Khar or Andheri. It is hard to explain just what it feels like to have danced for a long time and to have such a safe place to "land." I have landed in all kinds of places over the years and danced with many wonderful people. I feel very lucky for having a place that feels so welcoming and where ideas can be freely expressed and danced just as Ritambhara's belly dance classes in Mumbai. ! I feel that the dance itself is a healing gift and I do appreciate that. I think that the climate that Ritambhara Sahni provides for the students who come is nurturing and encouraging. I really enjoy having at this belly dance class in Mumbai to "be." I will continue to dance and enjoy with Ritambhara Sahni's institute as long as I can.
