Don't believe a word...

October 5, 2007
I should have posted this along time ago. Asharah is definitely an awesome, AWESOME dancer. Her techniques are, i swear, the most enthralling, mezmorizing, and wow those pop and locks she does...oi! Also having her as a teacher was great. She definitely knows her stuff and makes sure to work with everyone together or individually to have us grasp what she is trying to teach. Awesome teacher she is.

The shows she puts on is fantastic. I would ever so much keep going to see her perform. If you haven't seen this woman perform, YOUR MISSING OUT!!! XD

Asharah rocks! Okay, so I don't know the girl personally, but I checked out her you tube video, and if you haven't seen it yet, YOU NEED TO CHECK IT OUT! She has awesome song selections, and beautiful skill. Definately a joy to watch.
