What a gift it is to dance with Sonia and to have the opportunity to access her wealth of knowledge into the world of dance! Through her professionalism and exquisite grace, her classes have helped reignite my passion for Oriental dance in a refreshing way and the discipline I need to strengthen my personal practice. Her creative talent for choreography and rhythmic combinations, along with her clear and consistent teaching style keeps me on my toes ~ to both challenge myself and understand the movements in a new dimension. From classical dance to adding fusion elements, she has helped me take my dance to the next level; even my own students have noticed! Each class has taken me deeper into developing my technique, adding new layers, as well as enhancing my own unique body movements ~ inviting me to slow down, listen & feel the music ~ and reminding me of the reason I love to dance! ~Jamin Soleil Krone, Portland, OR

The grace and talent of Sonia Ochoa is something one should experience in person. Especially if you are a student of dance, (even if you are not), Sonia is the epitome of grace. In many genres, Flamenco, Belly Dance, Odissi, Fusion and more  There is so much to learn from her. It’s more than choreography its a perspective, way of moving and special point of view that is so unique. While she is California you should look her up no matter what your dance expertise is in. ~Ana Maria Suarez, Los Angeles, CA

We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the world renowned artist Sonia Ochoa here in northern Greece (2019) for an intensive day of study and training. To learn from Sonia is an invaluable privilege as Sonia embodies all the qualities of a real artist. Exquisite technique, profound knowledge on Dance, grace, delicacy and beauty of spirit to name just a few. ~Irini Karabatzaki, Thessaloniki, Greece

Sonia is a wonderful teacher! Her class is fun, but it also challenges me. I’m always learning something new, and I can see myself growing as a dancer each week. Most importantly, her kind and nurturing personality makes class a joy to attend. I highly recommend joining! ~Lindsey Jeans-Shaw, Long Beach, CA
