*Ashley Rhianne is a super amazing person, coach, instructor, and a dancer! I have known Ashley over 4 years. Since then, she gave me a tremendously valuable and very generous feedback on improving my dance technique and style. She was always open and honest which to me it was very important. I must add, that Ashley’s style of teaching/providing a feedback is very motivating. I took her workshops and master classes, mostly, to enrich my dance knowledge, for I know she is always up to date and has the greatest mentors on today’s bellydance/Oriental dance scene (Mohamed Shahin, Randa Kamal to name a few). Ashley is also my personal jury as part of our private online classes series. We have set a goal and are going towards it gradually. She is very understanding and flexible with me as well (I am a full time mom of two, for those who understand). People are very lucky to have her as their instructor and a mentor. I truly recommend her. She does what she loves and you can really say it from a first sight ~ Juliana

*Working with Ashley has been one of the biggest honours and greatest decisions I have made. She adds such unique flavours to her choreographies that combine all her years of experience in dance in Canada as much as Egypt.
She is a sweet and patient instructor, but do not let this guide your decision. When you take a class, a workshop, or exchange videos with Ashley, she will make you work to bring you to perfection. In contrast, you will feel motivated to work harder. ~ Karime

* Ashley Rhianne has coached me through creating my first raqs al assaya (stick or cane) choreography. I was inspired to try creating my own choreography after taking Ashley’s workshop on raqs al assaya. She gave me specific feedback and suggestions on my dance as I choreographed it and sent her video online. She  was knowledgeable about the music and the costuming for saidi. Ashley is a very kind and supportive coach that I loved working with and I look forward to training with her again!- Rachel Carter
