I’ve been looking forward to taking classes at the Rhody Center for a while. I finally signed up for what will hopefully be the first of many classes. Yesterday I was excited to take my first belly dance class. Kristen was very friendly and helpful. She took the movements slowly, broke them down and explained the mechanics. In addition, Kristen sought our input and geared the class toward our needs, making it indivialized. The added benefit was the small class size of wonderful, like minded people. I love the music, the dance space (colorful), the instructor, and the variation in styles (Arabic vs. Egyptian, etc.). Thank you for an amazing first experience and thank you Julie for hooking me up with a coin hip scarf. Can’t wait to spend next week learning more with everyone!

Last night I had the pleasure of attending "try it out" week for adult beginner ukulele with my two teenaged daughters.  We have been looking for ways to learn this instrument that we had received as gifts for awhile now, and were thrilled to find the Rhody Center.   Julie was very welcoming, and the space is terrific for a small group lesson.   Although the girls have some experience with violin/viola, I have zero string-instrument familiarity.   However, the content and pace of the class was excellent, and the other students in the class were a great bonus...especially for the sing-a-longs!  My daughters and I had a great time, came away excited to learn more, and are ready to return next week.  Thanks, Julie!

Wow, thanks so much, Noelle! I'm glad you all enjoyed it. And happy you are signing up! :)

We were recommended this studio by one of our friends some time ago, and I immediately gained interest.  I truly believe more studios like the Rhody Center should exist so people can experience other cultures while having fun, while meeting new people at the same time.  So, my first class was a seven week Bollywood course with Nistha.  First and foremost, Nistha is excellent.  She has such a bubbly and likeable personality while also being so knowledgeable with the Bollywood dance.  Furthermore, the class is super fun.  I tend to smile when we're learning the choreography because it's so unique and energetic.  As a class, you share a lot of laughs and smiles.  I enjoyed the class so much, I'm enrolled in another session this fall, along with ballet!
I'm grateful to have discovered the Rhody Center because I plan to be a part of the family for years to come!

Awesome, thanks, Ashley! I will pass along your comments to Nishtha!

I took a sample class: Salsa for Beginners, with Chris, and am glad  to have been there!  I've been wanting to get in for a class for a long time, and my schedule finally permitted it. Chris was so patient and cheerful, he helped dissolve my insecurities about trying something new. Would absolutely recommend The Rhody Center for people of all skill levels.

The Rhody Center comment

Thanks so much for the kind words, Susan! It's so nice to have you in the class. I'll let Chris know you enjoyed it. -Julie

I enjoyed my first class last week. I have no music background but was made to feel welcome to learn. Great teacher, talented and patient. Fellow drummers were very kind (and talented). I would recommend this class.

Thank you so much, Beth! Kyle and the crew are happy for you to join. Sorry I missed you, I'm sure I'll meet you next week. -Julie

Last week I attended my first class of Ukulele for Adult beginners. I had a fun time and am happy I decided to give it a try.  There are seven of us in the class and there is a nice mix of ages. I myself am 71 and have always loved music and was looking for something different to try.   Julie, the instructor presents things in an easy way  but also keeps us moving along. I am happy to say  that we have a group who loves to sing so it's a double pleasure to play and sing together.  I look forward to our next class.

The Rhody Center comment

Thank you so much, Denise! I agree--a great group. And it's nice to have you in it. See you Thursday! -Julie

Two months ago I had two partial knee replacements.  I'm determined to fully rehabilitate and be better than ever.  I was looking for something that would be fun and totally new for me.  It also had to be low impact.  When I saw the Facebook posting for a Belly Dancing beginner class, it was just perfect. I have no previous dance experience.  The teacher, Lola, was welcoming and made the class educational and fun.  Group members were friendly and supportive.  It was so much fun!  I can't wait for the next session!

The Rhody Center comment

Thanks for the kind works, Sandy! We enjoyed meeting you and having you in the class! -Julie

Today was my first experience at The Rhody Center. Julie was very welcoming and helped all the paticipants get acclimated with where to put things. Kristen was very patient and knowledgeable in the beginning level of belly dancing. I was nervous stepping out of my comfort zone, but the small class and individualized attention helped make my first experience wonderful!

The Rhody Center comment

Aww, thanks, Shannon! We're so glad you stepped out of your comfort zone! We try to be friendly to beginners. Sometimes I forget, lol, since I've been doing this a while, but I remind myself that folks can be nervous when they start a new class. I will let Kristen know! See you next week!

For years I had been searching for a class on belly dance at a location which is convenient to me. I am delighted to  say I've finally found it! Last night was my first class at The Rhody Center. The space is cozy, clean, and inviting. The teacher, Lola and manager Julie are warm and welcoming. And the class itself is exactly what I needed. Shimmying and stretching and dancing around was so much fun. I can't wait to go back next week!

The Rhody Center comment

Oh, that's awesome to hear, Natalia! Lola and I (Julie) and glad to have met you. See you next Monday!
