Delivering a fat-huge-conscious-loving & passionate HELLO to 2019!

49509502_1891756564255019_8873569378914795520_n.jpgCelebrating 2018 is a huge part of preparing for the best year of our lives – we cannot move forward, heading for true JOY, if we don´t bow in gratitude towards everything we´ve lived.

This year brought the (physical) death of one of my best friends – Khaled Roshdy -, the growth and increasing success of Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School; finding the Love of my Life; life in Morocco, then in Bali; a major earthquake with a terrifying tsunami threat in Lombok, dengue fever (my man), a fire, the birth and publishing of a new book; a resetting of life priorities and dreams.

I take the unpleasant as I take the pleasant: with open arms, ready to make the best of everything that comes my way. Meanwhile, I keep on dreaming and taking action upon those dreams – lazy bones have never been my thing.

As we draw 2018 to an end, I share a special video on Authentic Egyptian Dance and, ultimately, Life. I´m sure you´ll understand why.

Wishing YOU the brightest, most loving and abundant NEW YEAR!

Talking about Modern Egyptian Dance, looking like John Bon Jovi ;)

Dismiss the John Bon Jovi look (not my usual look), the exaggerated hand gestures (my usual body language), the wide-open-fish eye expressions (my style) – focus on the message.

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.

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 ❤

Last, but not the least, WHY our school is NOT for EVERYONE:

The Fire that gets us through the rain

The following 2 weeks will be definitive, life-changing, ultra-focused, intense.
For that reason, & many others, I´m leaving you an inspiration for the road: the fire, the fun, the willingness to share your strength with the world. No apologies, no playing the underdog, no limits.
