The Soul of Oriental Dance: Joana Saahirah, Dancer, Teacher and Choreographer of Egyptian Oriental and Folkloric Dances, Actress and Author

After almost a decade of performing in Egypt with her own orchestra – Joana Saahirah has created a style of teaching, choreographing and performing that combines the best of Egypt and the best of  the West: technique, expression and Art.

She has also studied and worked (as a choreography and teaching assistant) to Master Mahmoud Reda from whom she learned his Theater Folklore styles.

Joana’s dream & mission is to share the soul of Oriental Dance and Egyptian Folklore with the world, revealing the true richness and ancient knowledge hidden in this art form. She has been invited to teach and perform all over the world & this will be her second time teaching in New York & the US.

Joana has written several articles for newspapers and magazines (about Egyptian culture, music & dance) & 2 books about The Magic of Egyptian Oriental Dance and her Paths of Discovery in the Land of the Pyramids. One of these books – “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” was published in January, 2014. Another one – “Diary of Egypt” trilogy –  will be published soon.
