Dharlene Valeda

Dharlene Valeda first discovered this dance in Europe in 1990, and has been a dedicated student ever since. Her approach to the dance emphasises a correct and healthy posture, as well as a soulful approach to movement. She endeavors to develop in her students a deep love of the music and cultures from which bellydance originates. She founded Haft Vadi Studio in Kitchener in 2002. Dharlene continues to study widely and regularly, including investing in trips as far away as Egypt, Germany, New York City, and California to study with the best instructors. She devotes most of her training time to private lessons with master teachers, to ensure that she receives careful feedback on her development, and therefore can provide accurate instruction in authentic bellydance to her students
