"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


Sahira is a lifelong performer and has studied music, drama and dance since the age of two. She has dedicated the last 20 years of her life to the art of belly dance and her favorite thing in the world is to share the dance with others. She has trained in both Egyptian and Tribal style belly dance as well as Modern and West African and loves to incorporate all of these influences in her art. Sahira is a lifelong musician and head over heels crazy about the zills. She is known for her warm and inviting energy and her tendency towards the ridiculous.

In 2005, Sahira released her first instructional DVD, ”Arabian Spices“ and has since then been invited to teach and perform across the USA as well as Mexico, Indonesia, Australia, Germany, Canada, and Taiwan. In 2006 she had the honor of being the first tribal instructor ever invited to teach at the largest belly dance festival in the world: Ahlan We Sahlan, in Cairo, Egypt. In 2007 Sahira released two more instructional DVDs: ”Ali“ and ”Bella Donna Ya Helwa.” In 2011 she teamed up with Silvia Salamanca to release the DVD “Spanish Gypsy Passion“ and “Folkloric Combinations” was released in the Summer of 2013.

When in Houston, Sahira directs BellaDonna Dance Company, voted Houston ’s Best Belly Dancers by the Houston Press. She is also founder and director of Houston’s premiere Tribal Style troupe, Urban Hips.

Sahira says:

“I love belly dancing! Seriously… I did not ever set out to be a professional belly dancer, but since dedicating the last 20 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 people from all walks of life. I’ve gained balance, confidence, poise, and come to appreciate my body and who I am… and you can too!

People have described my classes as “clear and easy to follow”, “approachable”, “a fabulous workout”. My science background comes out in my attention to detail and the way I break the movements down into their smallest component parts.

I look forward to helping others all over the world to learn and love this dance that means so much to me.

See you on the dance floor!”
