I have suffered with negative body issues my whole life. Growing up as an overweight kid has developed some deep seeded emotional detachment towards my reflection in the mirror. Well, I am going to tell you my secret to what has finally helped me overcome those negative feelings. I started taking belly dance classes at the Dancing Spirit studio in Tiverton. I know what you may be thinking. I can't do that because I'm too "this" or I'm too "that". I thought the same thing until I got the pleasure of not only watching myself transform and embrace my own inner goddess, but others as well. People young and old, from different walks of life. Women with no curves, or people with a little more arou

The Dancing Spirit is one of my favorite places to be. There is definitely something very magical about the "magic" carpet & Barb is a great teacher...a true dancing spirit!

About The Dancing Spirit Studio

Since she was 4 years old, Barbara Derecktor Donahue's role models were famous ballerinas. As an adult, she performed with multiple ensembles, managed a dance company, and taught students of all ages how to perfect their pirouettet. She honed her technique over the ensuing 12 years, and today leads classes at The Dancing Spirit Studio that guide visitors through their own empowering undulations, steps, isolations, and rhythm. In addition to drawing pupils from all walks of life, her innovative lessons have earned her the title of Strathmore's 2012 Professional of the Year in dance education. 

Barbara's chief concern, other than retrieving lost hip scarves from innie bellybuttons, is freedom of creativity. She urges her students to experiment with steps in a nonjudgmental environment, whether they are practicing body waves or composing a costume for a chair-dance routine. The breadth of her experience allows her to blend ballet, modern dance, and Middle Eastern maneuvers into a signature fusion of styles. As a result, the studio's shows are always different. Practicing groups can sync their choreography with the flow of the waters in the nearby Narragansett Bay.
