"This is just what I needed - Attention to detail with graceful instruction. I need to improve my foundation to continue dancing as I'm getting a little older. Yesterday I practiced hip slides twice and of course while doing dishes. This morning, chest slides and the day is young. I'm really enjoying the videos! Thanks for the boost in enthusiasm!"

What you'll gain with this course and your belly dance practice
- A movement practice that engages not only your body, but your mind and creativity as well.
- Increased awareness of your body and the muscles used in belly dance
- The joy that comes with movement and dance
- Increased health and wellness
- A new outlet for creativity and self-expression
- An invitation for some much-needed "you time" on a regular weekly basis
This course is designed for people with little to no dance experience, so you can be confident to get all the explanation and breakdown you need to succeed.
Each week we will walk through 3-4 foundation movements of the dance, drill them for strength and muscle memory and then dance them with music.
Watch as you build your strength, grace and confidence week by week. Once you’ve completed all eight weeks you will have more than enough movements to put together a great combination you can dance to just about any music you like to groove to.
I’d love to share this dance with you and invite you to join me on the dance floor. I keep class accessible and fun…and sometimes just a little bit ridiculous. (I believe that we all learn faster when we are smiling.)

Well hello there, fabulous dancer! I'm Sahira. 👋🏽
I'm a life-long performer and have dedicated the last 21 years of my life to empowering others through the beautiful art of Belly Dance. I am a lifelong musician and head over heels crazy about the finger cymbals. I am a self-proclaimed technique and music geek, love anything to do with bunnies and could live off of spicy Szechwan food for the rest of my life.
I also direct the BellaDonna Dance Company, voted Houston ’s Best Belly Dancers by the Houston Press and am founder and director of Houston’s premiere Tribal Style troupe, Urban Hipsy.
I love belly dancing! Seriously… I did not ever set out to be a professional belly dancer, but since dedicating the last 21 years of my life to it, I cannot imagine doing anything else. I was an engineer by training before starting my first belly dance class – which just goes to show that anyone can learn this beautiful dance!
What I love best about teaching – and I’ve had the opportunity to work with students all over the world – is watching a student grow into their dance – from that first “ah-ha” moment, to seeing them dance with a confidence that they never thought they had. This dance is so wonderfully empowering and can be enjoyed by every body.
I look forward to sharing the dance floor with you soon!
