Dancing to Express Versus Dancing to Impress by Joana Saahirah

Days are flying fast – faster than ever -, at least that´s how I feel. No Summer for this girl – only work. No complaints, though. When we do what we love, when we feel we ought to, everything is in harmony. Nothing tastes better than knowing you´re fulfilling your Path

My apologies to my blog´s readers – no time to write over here, lately. Between my NEW School (Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance Schoolhttp://www.powhow.com/classes/joana-saahirahs-dance-studio), my private online classes, working on my new book and preparing material to perform, teach and lecture on my upcoming world trips (Brazil, Slovenia, Czech Republic, 4th USA TOUR (Delaware, Atlanta, Portland) & Canada, Ireland and more), I can hardly breathe.

When I manage to relax, it´s only for a couple of hours; one afternoon, if I´m lucky and I schedule it. Yes, you read it well: my relaxing/rest time must be scheduled. If not, it doesn´t happen. These days, I have to schedule everything – a shower; even my sleeping time. And yet I´m thriving, growing on every level, shining.

Wishing everybody a fabulous August! Speak to you soon ❤

Sexuality in Egyptian Dance – The Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the RoomSexuality (Physical Pleasure) in Egyptian Dance, as in Life, is a huge Elephant in the Room, one of the most misunderstood, distorted & essential parts of human experience. 
Throughout my career, in Egypt and around the World, I´ve met thousands of dancers who were disconnected from that side of their existence or connected to it in a destructive, critical, guilty manner. As a consequence, they see their self-expression, vitality, power to accomplish their dreams or do/move according to what they feel extremely hard if not impossible. 
Such negative relationship with their most primal selves affects their health and expansion potential. It makes their life, and dance, smaller.
Authentic Egyptian Dance proposes a reeducation of the way we see ourselves – including our physical bodies – and human experience. 
Know more about the Elephant in the Room by watching these 2 videos I´ve selected for you. I hope you find inspiration in them.
