Welcome! My name is LaUra, and I am the proud owner of iDance Studio. As a teenager my dream was to be a professional belly dancer. This dream propelled me to study and perform in the Middle East, where I immersed myself in the culture, history and technique of this art form. It drove me to compete in numerous festivals and conventions, and to share my choreography with the world in showcases. Through love and desire, I was able to manifest my dream, and achieve the life I had always wanted for myself.

I created iDance Studio as a place where anyone can come and learn how to manifest the life that they desire. Dance holds power and magic, an ability to bring you what you need in your life. Whether you want to find your path, heal your body, mind, or spirit, or manifest your own deepest dreams, iDance can guide you on your way.

      I've been taking bellydance lessons and classes with LaUra for a few years.  She is a great teacher and choreographer, with a good sense of a persons strengths and weaknesses. I get alot out of each and every class.  Highly recommend!!

    thumb Vivian S.

      My husband and I took 2 private wedding choreography classes with Laura to prepare for our Big Day recently.  Thanks to Laura's instruction, we learned a beautiful, meaningful routine that was original and unique to us, but easy to learn even for our two left feet.  And it only took 2 sessions!

    Our first dance at our wedding was a big hit with everyone: we got many compliments on it and were very happy with the end result (can't wait to see it on our wedding video!). We both are not the greatest slow dancers, so this was no small feat. I am really grateful we came to iDance for help, as it was nothing but a fantastic learning experience. Highly recommend!
