The Vision for Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School was clear from the start.
I wanted to create a community of dancers interested in authentic Egyptian Dance, as I´ve learned it in many years of study and career in Egypt and work around the world, Self-Discovery & Empowerment. A space where each student could be herself instead of a follower; a school where competition gave place to COMMUNITY AND MUTUAL SUPPORT; a safe haven where all of us can learn, explore, fail and try again until we succeed.
I knew the students I meet, every time I travel to teach, perform and lecture, would benefit from a more consistent, in-depth, training with me and I was – always have been – passionate about EMPOWERING WOMEN TO DANCE AND BE THEIR BEST SELVES.
We opened our first class last May and we´ve grown immensely, since then.
All I can say, at the moment, is THANK YOU for your presence at the school, your support, trust and love. And, YES-YES-YES, this is just the beginning of a beautiful, personal, and collective, dream that will DIGNIFY EGYPTIAN DANCE and EMPOWER US (me included) to explore, and express, our true selves.
I´m honoured to have you at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School.
