"Sahira is an amazing instructor. She gives me peace of mind when I express any doubt in dancing abilities. Sahira always encourages us with our dance expression to best match our personalities, ensuring in our own personal technique. I have been able to present myself with my own body expression, and have been becoming more confident with my dance technique thanks to Sahira and her positive outlook. Due to Sahira's delineated breakdown of technique, I have been able to improve every aspect of my dancing, from body expression - to facial expression; all the way from the way I use my hands to the way point my toes! All of her students are lucky to have her, as she has nothing but positive and encouraging things to say. She is also has a touch of class mixed with exoticism in every dance move!"

Your Instructor


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!
