Exploring creating shapes & patterns with my hips! As soon as the workshop finished I began to play with so many ideas & soon had a whole page of shapes I created using just my hips! This has definitely helped me choreograph!
It helped me to become more comfortable with myself & accept my body shape & hip size! Although small they can still move & express!
It helped me understand the difference between bone & muscle movements & how to use them for my womb to begin to express.
I love the way Joana gently draws creativity out of me & helps me connect to it. This has definitely helped me experiment more & feel confident to do so.
The front angle & back angle run through of our combo was really helpful as is the breakdown of movements.
Joana's experience, knowledge, passion, dedication & love for her craft absolutely radiate through all her workshops, courses & lectures & is infectious!
It makes you want to learn as much as possible & serve this beautiful art form as she would want you to & to experience all the wonders that come with it!
I can't thank her enough for all she has taught me!
Lots of love as always Joana.
Thank you for continuing to excite & inspire me!"

"The best thing that happened to me in 2020 in the dance field was to discover Joana Saahirah's online dance school. Joana's teachings are what I will gladly carry with me into 2021 and further as I grow both in dance and on a personal level. When I first saw Joana's video performances, I was glued to the screen. I was captured by her presence, her unique style, and charisma. Intrigued, I decided to check out her online school courses. There I uncovered immense amounts of material, invaluable insights into dance and life in general, and a very rich, deeply caring, giving person. Joana's guidance has given me confidence in my path as a dancer and a human being. She has given me tools to achieve my dance goals. And in her magical ways, she has helped me find answers to profound questions. Joana leads by example and it shows in everything that she offers to her students. The material that she gives is always rich, captivating, and enlightening. I would highly recommend Joana's school of dance to dancers of any level and of any background. There is something special and highly useful in her teachings for everyone. "
"I recommend Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, 100%, because it's authentic Egyptian Dance. She lived and breathed the culture and clearly loves it; now she's sharing it with the world selflessly. Our beloved art form needs more dancers like that. I also love that her career has been not just as an artist, but as an entertainer. That perspective is great for professional dancers. The mentorship has been the biggest gift I´ve reaped from joining Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, and it has helped me stay true to who I am as a dancer and not get pulled in all different directions. Thank you for everything! For sharing your passion and heart so selflessly. "
"I´ve taken many classes now with Joana. I know why I take them. With Joana, one really learns on a different level than most classes in Egyptian dance. She offers courses so that the learner can become their own dancer. For example, instead of simply correcting something one has difficulty with, or asking that you simply do what she is doing, she gets to the core of why you are doing something or not doing something. Her courses want you to be your own dancer, find your own joy, discover your own talents. Her courses are methodology, lessons, examples, that you can continue learning from on your own. She is teaching you how to learn and discover on your own. Yes, her courses will teach you how to do something, and if that's all you want, it is there. But, there is so much more. I think the best students for Joana's courses are true learners. What I´ve enjoyed the most, so far, at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, is the ability to learn on so many levels has been a tremendous gif . Joana has made the dance big, expansive, and limitless. That limitlessness is also open to her students - whatever level, your background, your experience, your personal expression… . This is not just about the stage, the classroom, but rather an invitation to connect to something grand - larger than any one thing. As for the platform, I love the critique. It is great to be able to ask questions. I also love feedback on my work. The other thing that has been a really nice addition is the online community. I am connecting with dancers from around the world. I see the same names and I really enjoy that. Thanks Joana. I seriously think you are an exceptional teacher. "
"I enjoyed Joana Saahirah´s Course soooo much. Well explained and enough repetitions - it was really easy to follow. And what I liked the most: The enormous knowledge you shared with us. You made me understand what is Shaabi about and gave me the important background information for my dance. Everything was so well-founded. This is really rare these days. Most the teachers don't care, mix up everything, don't even know what Egyptian Dance is about and where the different styles come from. I appreciate this very much, thank you. And it helps me to develop my dance and grow as a person. "
"In my many years of dance study, I've yet to find a dance teacher with such a holistic approach to instruction. I recommended the school to other students who would appreciate this rich a learning experience. Joana asks a lot of her students because she is dedicated to helping them produce the results they are seeking. For all she expects, you will benefit abundantly. "
"I found learning about the instruments very useful - already I'm picking them out while listening to Tabla solo's ! I enjoyed all the rhythms too as this was something I wanted to understand better. I loved your out of the box way of connecting to creativity & it absolutely has made me explore how to use my creativity even more! I found it super helpful that you broke down the phrases of the music we used & how you fitted the choreography with them. I loved the choreography & how you broke movement & technique down. I love all the little snippets of wisdom you share! You are an excellent teacher! Very clear, very encouraging, patient & give so much. You share your whole heart & passion for this beautiful dance. My transformation was definitely thinking more creatively. Beginning to pick out instruments & rhythms when listening to tracks. Understanding not to overdo! Experimenting without expectations of getting it right first time! Feeling more confident but haven't quite got to fierce yet! I would recommend the school because you have so much knowledge, experience & passion for this culture & dance & you share & give so abundantly. You are a fantastic teacher! I can't think of anything else to improve it! Everything you do is always so well thought out & delivered. It really shows how much work, thought & energy you put in to your school, courses & workshops. Thank you Joana! "
"I recommend Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School to other students, for sure. But only those who are really interested in the authentic Egyptian dance and the culture behind it. I have learned beautiful choreographies, received many beautiful learning materials, tips for self-practice, and some Arabic. I have also learned practical ways to be self-confident through your course, which is indeed life-changing. The reason I cannot leave her school is that she doesn't force her students to be her followers (totally the opposite!) She values each student's individuality and guides us to be "ourselves," in dance and in life. Taking your courses has truly been a great help for me, both physically and mentally. Literally, you saved my life...Thank you. "
"This year, I subscribed to 4 courses at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School and, honestly, her courses are amazing, I recommend them 100% because she teaches you the dance technique and choreography but the Egyptian Culture behind the dance, the mentality behind each movement. Furthermore, she develops you on a personal level - emotionally and psychologically -, something that can help you evolve in your dance and in your life. If you´re wondering if you should join her school, I´d say “don´t think twice, join it now! "
