My January (exciting) NEWS!

A brand NEW book and a brand NEW Joana Saahirah Online Dance School are opening 2019 and you´re invited to join the party!

This new year has found me with both feet firmly on the ground and a growing pair of wings that´ll allow me to take off.

Once more, I redefine my concept of Happiness and the Priorities I must focus on, in case I wish to continue growing (I do).

Turning dreams into reality isn´t always cool, pleasant, or beautiful – sometimes, work is hard; we have to dive deep into boring, challenging tasks; we gotta bump with our head against the wall in order to see the fruits of the seeds we´ve planted. More often than not, the tip of the iceberg is just a tiny sample of the enormous amount of work that preceded it, work which the public never gets to see.

Here are some of the (exciting) NEWS I´m sharing with YOU, this month, both a product of the work that remains hiding beneath the water:

  1. My NEW book“Behind the Curtain” -, a collaboration with a talented Slovenian photographer – Breda Jurecko – is coming out.
  2. A NEW, renewed, Joana Saahirah Online Dance School, is arriving with brand new, pioneering, online courses. The same Vision and Purpose – to share authentic Egyptian Dance, Self-Discovery & Empowerment with the whole world – with an upgraded platform that will serve our community better.

January NEWS at Joana Saahirah Online Dance School*

The new year is here – it´s here! – and here we are to make the best of it.

Joana Saahirah Online Dance School was another dream come true and for that


 I´m deeply thankful. It serves my passion for Egyptian Dance, Music & Culture but, above all, it serves my passion for SERVICE. I love to share what I´ve learned with people; to give them tools so they, too, can thrive and shine their own light. In dance as in life.

I´m proud, and thankful, to tell you Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School has been rated with 5 stars (the maximum rating) by ALL the students who have taken our classes except for 1 student who rated us with 4 stars because the internet connection failed due to one of the worst fires in the history of Portugal, happening around my home, at the time, where I was teaching. Despite appearances, this is a true story (reality is always more incredible than fiction).
