Just a quick email to thank you all for your performances on Saturday evening, the client was delighted with all entertainers and how professional you all were, I'm sure we will use all of your services again in the future - Harem Nights

I recently booked Laura and the Sabihah Stars following an internet search for a local event I was running. Their performance was tremendous and I have already had requests to re-book them! Their belly dance act was very well received and as it was a family event all of the audience were very impressed by the costumes and quality of dancing. A first class performance and I will certainly be recommending them to other event companies. I am also interested in the classes that Laura runs - which seem a great way for women of all ages to tone up and have fun! - Lynn Vallance, Hot Off The Press, Hertfordshire. 

"Thank you so much for entertaining the 3100 participants yesterday before Race for Life, you were great. It was lovely to have you all on stage". - Lucy Hynes, Area Events Manager, Cancer Research UK 

"Laura and Kate did a fantastic job dancing at Fashion for Freedom, a charity event in aid of Save the Children. The duo did a very classic yet interesting dance routine, and every move kept the audiences interested! All the guests were thoroughly entertained as they did such a great opening to the show. Thank you so much for dancing at the event and help us raise funds for the charity! - Syafiqua - Fashion for Freedom Event

I started attending Laura's belly dance class about a year ago in September/October 2011. From the very first class, I was hooked. It was fun, rewarding and inspiring. Laura was great and the choreography she put together was incredible. It felt like a real achievement every week to have learnt yet another piece of fun choreography and also to have really pushed myself fitness-wise.
But Laura's lessons are more than just fun and fitness. They inspire self-confidence and a real sense of self-worth. The friendships I have made in this class are very special and Thursdays are now the highlight of my week. I do not miss Laura's belly dance classes unless I am really sick - and even then I always try to drag myself there because I know, no matter how bad I feel, I ALWAYS feel a million times better after my class - Liz Carr

"Sabihahstars came and Belly Danced at my husbands 40th Birthday celebration in Henley on Thames. Over 100 guests were mesmerised by the girls and some guests enjoyed joining in too! I could not recommend Laura and Gillian enough, highly professional and talented. The girls add that something very special to a party" - Sue Watts

"Laura's fantastic ability to breakdown and teach the choreography each week leaves us all buzzing with a great sense of achievement. The mix of traditional and modern tracks makes the class varied and great fun, leaving us wanting more!" - Claire Pearman

"I started the Beginners Belly Dance class with some scepticism as to whether I would be able to do it and how self conscious I might feel, being one of the older class members. Once getting into the dances and steps that I have learned but not necessarily yet mastered, I have found it to be great fun and a challenging way to burn off some energy and calories which is all an added bonus. Laura is a great teacher, lively and very encouraging and all of the music used to date has been current and so is motivational, find myself doing steps in my mind when it comes on the radio and always look forward to the next class. I would recommend anyone to have a go at this class and would not be surprised if they get hooked on it as I have. - Pauline Raybould 

"I really cannot speak highly enough of Laura's Belly Dance fusion classes on Thursdays. I started last October and have not wanted to miss one class since! The music, routines, fun and learning are thoroughly addictive and the time goes so quickly it just doesn't seem long enough! Laura's classes help you to find and celebrate your femininity and completing the routines (due to Laura's great teaching style) gives such a sense of achievement and completely immerses you in the dance. Belly dancing really boosts your confidence no end- you go from not wanting to show off your body to really enjoying it! Thank you Laura for being such an inspiring and creative teacher and making Thursdays the highlight of my week. - Kirstie

I have been attending Laura's Bellydance class for beginners and intermediates for about two years. Prior to this, I hadn't danced at all, other than at parties and weddings! Laura's gentle encouragement and constructive advice has provided me with much more than a dance class, creating confidence both mentally and physically. She has provided opportunities to perform as well as to expand knowledge about Bellydance through providing workshops. The marvellous thing about Laura's classes is that a person can do as much as they feel and will not face any criticism, just encouragement and praise, whether it's your first lesson or one hundred and first - Sally Marham
