TESTIMONIALS
on JS´s Private Online Coaching

Professionalism, quality, originality, and enthusiasm are some of the “ingredients” I´ve found in my private online classes with Joana Saahirah. It´s been a very enriching experience on a dance level as well as on a personal level.

Taking online classes with Joana Saahirah has allowed me to fall even more in love with Oriental dance than I thought possible. As a teacher, Joana doesn't teach steps, she cultivates artists. She expects nothing less than your authentic self in every move, and she is a living example of that integrity. Don't get me wrong, she can break down a shimmy with the best of them, but connecting you to the purpose behind that shimmy is where Joana truly shines as a teacher. Whether in class or on stage, she is unapologetically creative and alive. Not only does she dance outside of the box, but she respects the hell out of that box, too! From our first class, Joana has pinpointed exactly what I needed and laid out exercises and inspirations to get me there. I truly look forward to my practice these days, which is often self-discovery. Learning from Joana is the most serious kind of fun. Thank you, Joana!

She is a really *magical* dancer and teacher, my understanding of Egyptian dance (and my dance) has been trans-formative, deepened, since taking ONLY her online classes! She develops each class personal based on your needs that are visible (and invisible) to you. What you think you know, you really have no idea! I don't even know how to begin without writing a novel. I can only imagine what her live classes/workshops are like! Not only does she develop your dance, but your understanding of Egyptian history, the people and their culture, and learning the heart of it all... the great secrets to this dance you don't hear about in your normal classes. Time is spent in EACH class developing not only your dance, but your understanding of the magic behind it all. Sometimes in very unusual but exciting, and interesting ways.

Learning with Joana through her Online classes was an experience that challenged me on many levels as a dancer and a researcher of oriental dance. Don’t expect “I show you, you repeat” type of class. You may expect questions that will make you rethink your way of seeing oriental dance, useful feedback that is concentrated on your dance technique and expression, expect homework and hard work but also fun, joy and transformation. In our few lessons I got connected to many various inspiring sources -it is never just about dance, in her words, and I agree. The most valuable thing that I got was this wide perspective that she offered to me as a teacher, it encouraged me to look for my own connections and meanings. I am grateful for that.

To study Egyptian dance with Joana Saahirah is to embark on an incredible personal journey — a journey of self-discovery, re-education and expansive growth. This is not a course of study for those who are game to join the “belly dance bandwagon” or those simply looking to spice up their exercise regimen. It is not for the weakhearted, you will find yourself nudged (gently, thoughtfully) outside comfort zones in order to ensure your progress. Warning: boldness and courage may be required!

Aimed at achieving a fundamental change in our understanding of and relationship to Oriental dance, Joana’s coursework is extensive, holistic. Her courses include (but are certainly not limited to) re-learning/re-thinking the basics of Oriental dance, understanding the soul of Egypt and its people, knowing the role(s) of Egyptian dance within cultural and spiritual contexts (both modern and historical), finding the relationships between movement, stillness and geometry, exploring sensualism, musicality and the relationship(s) between dance, other art forms and life.

At their core, Joanna’s private lessons are about the very personal process of unfoldment; an alchemical journey toward an artful embodiment of dance — a journey back to self, back to the artist within. Along the way you may rediscover the tender balance between expansive motion and quiet calm. Throughout you will find an atmosphere of authenticity. Joana’s teaching is about discovering your own answers, taking your own path of discovery to the heart of Oriental dance that resides within yourself and then having the audacity to embrace it, nourish it, share it.

In two months of study with Joanna I have experienced as much growth as I have in the last two years of studio classes. More importantly however, is the unique synthesis, context and connections I now understand by learning in this special way. My very personal journey has purposefully, artfully meandered as easily from Bauhaus to Glenn Gould to the Dionysian Mysteries as it has from Baladi to Tarab to Mawal. As Joanna repeats like a mantra, “It’s all connected.” What an incredible ride… what an incredible gift.

There are many kinds of teachers and then, there are special teachers, like Joana Saahirah, who carry the power of transformation on their skin, and that shows, it passes on to all her students; because the best teaching we can offer someone is the love for what we do. 

To study with this prestigious dancer and teacher is to embark on a beautiful journey without end; without return; a very intimate and deep trip. Her classes are unmatched! Her world is magical, she´s magical.

I´m one of those super lucky and happy people = Joana's student, and I can't thank her enough for all that she's shared with me, taught me, for her huge help to find my difficulties not only in dance but also in life. I am so excited to continue our path and see what comes next, because I never know what to expect but I am completely sure it will be a magic discovery, a precious experience, a light that will guide me in my way called Life. I can't recommend Joana enough. You just ought to try her classes, and it is not what I am saying, but what comes from the deepest part of my heart.
