watch my students perform

I have absolutely loved every class. Whether I feel energetic or tired from work there's always something there for me, from an excellent core work out to a fun lifting dance session. What resonates with me in Iraya's style is the freedom in developing our own style and understanding the movement. To sum up, Iraya is very friendly, warm and genuine person and I would definitely invite you to join her classes" Eleni SIdiropolou, intermediate class.
