When I first started dancing, I had only been dancing for maybe about a year and I got the chance to take a workshop in Cincinnati with a topwell known dancer; Suzanna Del Vecchio. This was a really great experience for me and I came away learning so much from her and the workshop I attended. She is such a graceful dancer and full of knowledge. I was very excited that I got to meet her in person and I had a chance to chit chat with her for a brief minute. I will never forgot the experiance and she is one that I do reccomend if you ever get a chance to go to one of her workshops; it is a must! I can remember we were moving in groups across the floor doing pelvic rolls down and I was doing them in reverse and she came up to me and said “we are not there yet” I really appreciated her telling me, but at the same time I also was somewhat embarrassed. We went through various drills and movement in the beginning and at the end she taught us choreography to Khayarouni by Woroud and can be found on the Belly Dance Superstars Cd, Volume 2. To this day, I still know a little bit of that choreography. In her workshop is where I learned the D-step. Suzanna has been dancing for over 25 years and she actually holds a retreat in Colorado that is a huge event. Suzzana teaches body alignment and technique through movement.
