New Personalized Online Course by Joana Saahirah.jpg

 

hand pointingWhat is it?

Egyptian Dance & Self-Empowerment is an Online Personalized/Private Course created and delivered by Joana Saahirah.

It´s a mix between Egyptian Dance Technique, Choreography, and Interpretation skills & Self-Discovery & Empowerment beyond the dance field.

It´s based on the premise that strong, self-confident, empowered women make strong, self-confident, empowered dancers. And vice-versa.

 

hand pointingFor whom?

For lovers of Egyptian Dance who also want to grow as human beings; for women who know they have something unique inside them that deserved to be expressed, shared with the world.

For dancers who are tired of empty, meaningless, competition oriented choreographies and are searching for REAL dance, REAL self-expression, REAL soul. In their dance, as in their life.

 

hand pointingWhat you will get from the course?

Ten private coaching sessions – each with 1 hour length – where you´ll receive an entire choreography  (Classical & Modern Egyptian Dance), dance technique, and a Personal Empowerment Program to awaken or/and strenghten your self-awareness & love.

You´ll have your own Facebook Secret Group where a direct contact with

Joana Saahirah will be kept from the beginning until the end of the course – loads of homework, extra/bonus material will be shared in this secret group, and feed-back will be shared in this group.

Your own Self-Empowerment Booklet delivered at the end of the course, an original manuscript created by Joana Saahirah for this special Private Course.

 

hand pointingHow does it work?

The 10 private/personalized sessions/classes are booked according to YOUR available time as well as Joana Saahirah´s agenda.

Homework & special challenges – on Egyptian Dance & Personal Growth – are shared between sessions/classes so you´re completely engaged and immersed in a journey which is both technical and personal.

The sessions/classes happen face to face with Joana Saahirah via Facebook Messenger or Skype.

The whole program will be adapted to YOU – your goals, your specific difficulties & strengths.

The available spots are LIMITED so – the first students to subscribe are the ones who can guarantee their course.

 

hand pointingJoana´s peculiar approach to Egyptian Dance & Self-Empowerment

After almost 8 years of a high-profile, extremely successful, pioneering career in Egypt, where she was also working as personal teaching & choreography assistant of Mahmoud Reda (aka the Father of Egyptian Folklore), Joana Saahirah traveled the whole world teaching, performing, and lecturing on Egyptian Oriental & Folkloric Dance.

She wrote and published her first book – “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” – and wrote articles on Egyptian Dance & Self-Empowerment for various prestigious newspapers, magazines, and websites. Aside from writing, performing, teaching, and lecturing, Joana has creared “Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School”, a NEW project which has already brought education and empowerment to hundreds of dancers from every corner of the globe.

Along the way, she observed and guided thousands of dancers of all levels – from beginners to the professionals you know and follow in the international “bellydance” market.

Her approach is holistic – it works body, mind, heart, and soul – and she unites Egyptian Dance technique & choreography with personal development tools that take dancers to higher levels of creativity, power, and success. In their dance, as in their life.

Hey, baby, take a walk in the wild side: NEW Shaabi Online course!

Our NEW Online Course “Street Shaabi (inspired by the Maraghanat)
is about to start, with live & recorded classes, at
Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School.
Every course I teach at my school or around the world is special but this theme is particularly close to my heart.
It took me years to even consider dancing to “Shaabi”. While I was performing in Egypt, audiences would ask me to perform the trendy Shaabi songs and I´d always refuse. First, those songs weren´t interesting enough for a professional dancer; second, I was totally biased where the Shaabi music is concerned. Let´s admit it: I refused to “walk in the wild side”, believing real dancers only performed to Classical Egyptian Music or high-quality Folkloric pieces.
As I grew up and opened my mind, I realized there are treasures hidden in the most unexpected places like, for instance, a good “Shaabi” song.
This style, which comes from the word “shaab” (the people), brings a political, social, even religious critic to the table; it allows us to express what is usually unexpressed – rage, hopelessness, sadness, frustration, the darker side of ourselves and life. When properly done, “Shaabi” is raw, real, down to earth and so much fun!
Once I realized that I started digging into the depths of this style and I couldn´t help but falling in love with it. I´m sure you´ll feel the same.

Here´s a little “Shaabi” inspiration from New Zealand:

Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School REBIRTH is coming!

5557_5_Transformation-mit-Marke.jpg

Happening as we speak

Transformation, as death – a symbol of transformation -, has a terrible reputation. We love safety, comfort, knowing what´s ahead of us, the (false) sense of security that stagnation brings.

And, yet, Life is constantly reminding us there´s nothing more certain than CHANGE; we can escape a lot but change is in our genes, in the air that turns from cold to hot, in the day that follows the night, in satisfaction that switches to hunger, in the movement of the tides, our blood, our skin, our soul.

The platform – Powhow – where Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School has opened its doors will close down by the end of November – many other changes, personal and professional, are coming along for the ride. What many would see as obstacles, I choose to see as OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH. I know we´re not supposed to stay the same, doing the same things in the exact same way we´ve always made them.

A NEW, better, platform for our school will soon be provided; a NEW, better, future is in construction. Step by step, shift by shift, we arrive where we´re supposed to be. If only we see The Flow as our friend; if only we ACT upon our dreams; if only we trust Life enough and open our arms to RECEIVE ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

P1A.gif

In a moment like this, when the darkness of Winter is slowly invading & illuminating us, I bow to the blessings of CHANGE. May we act upon it and allow it to bring exactly what it´s meant to fall on our laps.44932137_1871113233010008_3420781523861766144_n

Blooming - Finding & Expressing Your Voice Course

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.

Samia Gamal, one of the dancers of the Egyptian Dance Golden Age, connecting the dots

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.
