"I first met Sabriye at a Suhaila Salimpour weeklong. It was truly a studio setting. 8 hour dance days and hundreds of situps! What was the most impressive to me was her technique and her work ethic. I was floored by her dedication, training and general bad-assery at the zills. But here's the cool part... I was also fortunate enough to travel with her to The Czech Republic as fellow teachers for Tribal Umrah. Sabi is a beautiful person both on and off stage. She was such a pleasure to work with, both professionally and personally. Knowledge, Charisma, Grace and a wicked sense of humor. You're the bomb-diggity girl!" -Amy Sigil
