God laughs at our Plans

When I moved to Bali, Indonesia, I thought I’d start a new, local, dance project and settle into the Asian way of living. I also had a personal dream, one I doubted would come true
The thing is I´ve always dreamed my own dream, did my own thing, followed nothing except the guidance of my own soul.
I now look at the last months and realize how little we know and how generous, and sometimes brutal, life can be.
My initial plan went down the drain, giving place to another plan, one I was almost afraid to wish for – finding true love, launching myself into creative adventures that make my adrenaline juices flow, getting into a new phase of my life that pushes me to drop my old, outdated, identity behind.
Like a snake, I shed my old skin. It hurts a little and it’s damned scary but there’s no way back 🌟When Love knocks on your door, you must receive it with open arms. And so I do.
Life can be a b….; it can also be a generous Mother. May we open our hearts and receive its gifts.
Photo: me, bathing in a waterfall in Bali 🌞, captured by the eyes of my beloved man.

Blooming - Finding & Expressing Your Voice Course

How to create my first Egyptian Dance Choreography – Level 5 of Egyptian Dance ABC & Creative Awakening

warda 1

Egyptian Dance is not about gathering movements and information – it´s about knowing HOW TO USE THOSE MOVEMENTS AND INFORMATION.

See it as a Language (because it is):

First, you learn the letters (simple movements)

Which turn into words (more elaborate movements)

Which turn into phrases (dance phrases)

Which eventually turn into a full story (a dance piece which speaks about the music and your own life).

*

In our NEW Online Course – “How to create my first Egyptian Dance Choreography” -, we´ll bring the words and the simple phrases together to start DANCING. Actually dancing, not just stitching empty movements to each other.

We´ll use the dance vocabulary learned in the courses “Egyptian Dance ABC & Creative Awakening” – Levels 1,2,3,4, available at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, and we´ll bring that vocabulary to life with one of the most beautiful, romantic, and iconic songs of the Egyptian Music repertoire:

“Fi youm we leyla” by Warda al Jazairia.

After learning the ABC, you have to learn how to SPEAK from your heart and that´s exactly what we´ll do in this course.

Here´s what you´ll get in this course:

1. Authentic Egyptian Dance Technique

2. An introduction to Warda al Jazairia´s music

3. How to connect the dance movements and steps we´ve learned in the previous courses – Egyptian Dance ABC & Creative Awakening – Levels 1,2,3,4 – and build a full, gorgeous, soulful authentic Egyptian Dance choreography to the iconic song

“Fi Youm we Leyla” by Warda

4. Tips for Choreographing – some of the secrets I´ve learned from the Master “Mahmoud Reda”, the founder of the legendary “Reda Troupe”.

5. How to be more EXPRESSIVE & SOULFUL in the way you communicate – in dance, as in life.

6. You´ll have access to 7 LIVE & RECORDED classes you can view, and review, for as long as our school exists as well as exclusive BONUS MATERIAL created by Joana Saahirah for this course.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Even if you miss the live classes, you´ll have access to the class recordings.

A bright, NEW, Season is starting at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School!

New Season at Joana Saahirah Online Dance School

This Summer has been a rollercoaster – a life-changer, a series of tests to one´s will power, faith, maturity.

I´ve been adapting to a new life in Bali; I´ve been through a massive earthquake with a tsunami threat in Lombok – that included running for my life, side by side with my boyfriend and hundreds of terrified strangers who believed, like I did, we were going to die that night -; going through tough, exotic, diseases; internet difficulties which affected my work; coming face to my deepest, scariest, fears, on the ever-so-frightening trip of true Love.

If you could see me as I am, you´d see a naked person, totally vulnerable, and open. Although I´ve been through a lot, and seen quite a bit in this life, I´ve never felt so scared. And Alive. Grateful.

This, and much more I don´t share publicly, inspires my work.

With a NEW personal season comes a NEW creative/professional season. What I live feeds my dance, my teaching, my words.

The Power of Challenges by Joana Saahirah

This was the first, and only, video I´ve shot since I moved to Bali. As everything I do, it reflects Life as I experience it.

Living and sharing what I learn from living has been one core pillars of my career and one of my biggest pleasures. I hope this video inspires you towards a more interesting dance and, more importantly, life ❤

On Sensuality (being Alive)

33303010_144765399577788_2042889056764821504_n

A brand NEW Online CourseSensuality in Baladi (out of the box, crazy and fabulous, as usual) – is coming to Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School and with it come a set of subjects I hold dear to my heart.

Sensuality, as freedom, love, creativity, courage, inner strength, passion, and integrity are some of the subjects at the core of my work.

The first, a highly polemic and misunderstood topic, return to our school with a bang.

What is Sensuality and why is it so important in Egyptian Dance and, let´s not forget, in life?

For me, Sensuality is about BEING ALIVE and in APPRECIATION of every gift life´s offering us.

For me, Sensuality is about BEING ALIVE and in APPRECIATION of every gift life´s offering us.

Sensuality is about putting our phones, computers, and other machines aside and actually take a sip of this blessing which is being here, alive and thriving.

Most of us ignore the pleasures our bodies, and lives, provide – the feeling of drinking fresh water on a Summer day, resting after a long journey, waking up with air in our functioning lungs, touching a loved one or/and being touched, a sunset, the sun falling upon our skin, and so forth.

We ignore Nature, ourselves, other people; the simple (big) things in life.

Most of us live inside gadgets, not inside ourselves, present in our lives.

Being ALIVE means BEING in LIFE – your life. Body, mind, heart, and soul. That presence, more than anything else, is the definition of Sensuality.

Ask yourself:

HOW PRESENT AM I IN MY LIFE? Am I letting life slip away?
