No escape: what you dance is what(who) you are; you cannot give what you do not have.
Work on yoursef, as a human being, and you´ll become a better dancer.

Generosity by Joana Saahirah
Dedicated to all my students and colleagues around the world.
Work in progress ❤
It gives me immense pleasure to make notes for dancers, my students as well as people who have never studied with me; amateurs and professionals. The prejudices and misconceptions associated with Egyptian Dance are seemingly endless and it´s (part of) my job to dissipate them.
As Joana Saahirah´s Online School approaches its official opening (10th May!), my heart defines what´s more important to teach, aside from steps, movements and choreographies; my mind structures; my body materializes and my soul…well…my soul does what it has always done: it builds the bridges between the earth and the sky, it guides me, it shows me the way.
Thrilled, and grateful, for all the opportunities – co-created by yours truly or received from the Unknown – to turn my dreams into realities. All of them.
I´m (in) ❤
Communicating is an essential side of my life.
I need to CONNECT, link, build bridges and relationships between things and people. My thirst for Unity – making sense, or at least flowing with, the Big Picture – is my guiding light.
No wonder I´m a daughter of Hermes (Sun and Venus in Gemini ruled by Hermes/Mercurio), the Messenger of the Gods, who brought information from the sky to the earth and from the earth to the sky.
Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School is another Bridge – a bright, much postponed one – which targets Unity. The main goal is to create a community of dancers who share the love for Egyptian Dance, Music and Culture as well the desire to grow up, become more of themselves and have a fulfilled life.
There´s no separation between The Dance and The Dancer.
Furthermore, my job – as an artist, teacher and author – is TO SERVE. Doing all I do just to satisfy my ego sounds childish and too small. I work with The Soul for the The Soul.
Serving the art I love and respect so much, one I rescued in almost 10 years of career and life in Egypt, and for the last 5 years of nonstop work around the world.
Serving the students who study with me so they, too, can expand, materialize their dreams and flourish in their own, unique, paths.
Serving, and dignifying, the talents I was blessed with.
Serving the cause of Freedom in ways words fail to express (at least in this short post).
Serving my higher purpose.

These days, I´m keeping my words to the new books I´m working on, babies almost ready to explode like rising stars around the world.
P.S: Yes, I dream. Not high or low. I just dream. And dreams, if they´re real, have no limits.
Life is bigger, more amazing, abundant and Magic than we can imagine.
