The Big Move (Joana Saahirah´s NEW life in Bali, Indonesia)

32854758_10156430368174886_8726704376682381312_n

In Bali, two years ago, on my way to work in New Zealand

Yet another rEvolution in my life & career – I´m moving to Bali, Indonesia, this June.

I fell in love with Bali two years ago, on my way to work in New Zealand (with the lovely Candice Frankland) and, since then, my mind was set upon it.

Big life changes are often scary. I know the fear because I´ve been through it many times, never allowing it to stop me.

-What´s the big deal? I would…(fill the gap with your dream)…but I…(fill the gap with your excuse).

“I would… if.” – I´d be a millionaire if I earned a buck every time I hear this.

The ones who actually go after their dreams – that may, or not, include moving to a faraway, exotic, country – are fully aware of the gigantic enterprise they have ahead. They´re also aware of the excuses – always easy to find -, the fears, the possibility of failure and, what can be even scarier, the possibility of success.

TangledGif

In my life, a short but intense existence that already feels like a 200 years old adventure, I´ve done what everybody told me was impossible. First, in Egypt; then, around the world; and then, inside myself. It seems like proving people wrong has been my life mission.

I didn´t grow up in a particularly supportive environment, quite the opposite. I love my parents, and I know they do the best they can, but what they gave me, and my sister, while we were growing up was mostly negative critics, demands, the claim that we didn´t deserve much in life, and we´d never become financially abundant because, and I quote, “only dishonest people make money”; they made a point on making us feel we weren´t special. And we couldn´t dream big.

Whenever we brought A grades home, which was always, my mum would dismiss it as “nothing more than your obligation”.

I don´t remember them patting us on the back, or congratulating us for something we´ve done. Ever. At least not in our presence. Whatever we tried to do, it was never good enough.

They´d been raised in austere, poor, emotionally empty homes and that´s how they´ve raised us. Despite that, I made – keep making –  an effort to give myself what I didn´t receive in my childhood: love, sense of worth, self-confidence, a new set of beliefs about life.

The reason I´m telling you this is to tell YOU, too, independently of your circumstances, CAN grow, reeducate yourself, start LOVING yourself to the point of believing you can materialize any dream you commit to.

Reminder: 7bf53db5fa2aa74fb5bcafaea5a5f0de--dream-quotes-good-quotes.jpg

I´ve ventured into different kinds of wilderness, only to discover most of the danger is within us, & I´ve gone beyond my limits, never setting for mediocrity, comfortable zones, less than what I know deserve. None of this makes me a hero – it just proves every human being has the ability to dream & give their best shot at the materialization of that dream.

For me, failure is not failing to arrive where you wish to go; failure is not even trying, out of arrogance-cowardice-weakness, joining the Haters Crusade as a consequence.

“Do what you preach; let your words reflect who you are.”

If I teach courage, self-confidence, uniqueness, & the strength to DARE GREATLY, I have to set an example. That´s the most important part of being a Teacher.

You have to live what you teach.

Time has arrived to evolve & trust life, some more.

I can do it. YOU can do it.

Egyptian Dance Full Initiation KITS at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School

Egyptian Dance Full Initiation by Joana Saahirah Online Dance School.jpgThe majority of dancers I teach in festivals around the world, and at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, lack the bases of Egyptian Dance, amateurs and professionals.

In most cases, they´ve jumped from workshop to workshop, from teacher to teacher, from choreography to choreography, without ever understanding the RULES of the DANCE, the BASES, the PILLARS of this beautiful house called Egyptian Dance.

Here´s the thing:

If you don´t know the ABC, you´ll never be able to use the language;

If you don´t know the rules, you´ll never be able to break them;

If you don´t know your body, your creative identity, the purpose of the dance, you´ll never be able to create THE MAGIC you´re supposed to create when you´re dancing.

Result: you hit a wall, sooner or later; you feel stuck, uninspired, talentless, bored to death. You also struggle with advanced choreographies, improvisation, and trying to create your own dance pieces.

In order to solve this problem, I´ve created 2 SPECIAL CLASS PACKAGES, available at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School.

tenor.gifThese 2 packages offer dancers of every level a true understanding of the SACRED LANGUAGE OF EGYPTIAN DANCE. Once you purchase them, you have access to the correspondent class recordings for UNLIMITED TIME.

Once you take the classes included in these 2 class packages, you´ll be ready to face any class, workshop, choreography, show, and creative challenge. They offer you the TOOLS, and the LANGUAGE, to start exploring YOUR OWN DANCE, to fly instead of struggling, and to grow, really grow, as a dancer and as a human being.

Dig in & get ready to rock!

Why Joana Saahirah Online Dance School is NOT for everyone

Working, and living, in Morocco for a full month inspired me in many ways.

What I want, and what I do NOT want, became even clearer; new insights – personal and professional – bloomed from the inside out, or perhaps from the outside in, and NEW dreams showed up on my (already fiery) horizon.

Integrity, passion, purpose, and clarity on what I am and stand for are a huge part of this magical influence – no surprise I had to shoot the video you can watch in this post.

Common sense would suggest I´d proclaim out loud, my NEW school – Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School – is for everyone, a democratic space where everybody fits in. But, to be honest, that´s not true. My school, as everything I do, is NOT for everyone. I´m an original, very specific, often weird dancer/teacher/choreographer/author – I´m not what I lovingly call a belly dance Zumba gym teacher”.

Rest assured, my school is not for everyone. Students must be aligned with the purpose, the vision, and the vibration I´ve instilled in this newborn baby.

Special students for a special school.
