"I just wanted to take the time to say "Thank you-Thank you-Thank you!!!" You've given me my health and confidence back while introducing me to the wonderful world of Bellydancing. And to think, I just signed up because it looked fun and interesting. I never thought I'd loose weight, improve my health & marriage, make great new friends, all while having a blast trying to learn to belly dance. I just wish I'd have known about this sooner. I have arthritis in my back & neck, my range of movement was limited and I was in therapy twice a week. Since I started dancing with you, I've no longer needed therapy for my back pain & regained full range of movement. I've lost over 20 lbs without even trying or any awful dieting. Which has also lowered my blood pressure, colesteral, & pants size. (Woo-Hoo!) Feeling better about myself & health has really put the pep back in my step & my marriage. All this while having a blast dancing in your class. You helped me get my life back. Thank you Politti !! " ~ Shirley, student
