Offerings by Teachers


Barb VanHoy

Barb teaches classes, produces community dance events, and occasionally performs in Middle Eastern restaurants under the stage name Zafia.

She began studying Middle Eastern dance in 1998 and immediately fell in love with this joyously expressive dance form. She loves sharing it as a teacher because of its rich beauty and because anyone can do it. This dance makes women become more comfortable in their bodies, and helps overcome injuries, prevent back pain, and increase overall health.
