"Hi, ladies,
The last december 19, 2009, I had the chance to be in the Tonya`s workshop in Costa Rica and it really was an unforgettable experience and a real honor to know and share with an unbelievable and wonderful person as Tonya is, who is an unsurpassable dancer and instructor and she gave a new twist to the knowledge that each one of us had (or thought we had) about this art. And like she should say: Bravo Tonya! And thanks for sharing a little bit of your vast knowledge with us." -- Katiana Rivera

"Tonya, I hope you realize the effect you have on your students. I am honored to study belly dance with you and I look forward passionately to more and more. This has been an especially trying year for me and you have been part of my healing. Thank you for the beautiful book you and Atlantis wrote. I cherish it and have read it cover to cover. Wishing you love, joy, music, dance, health and complete happiness."

Your newer student, Christine.
