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!
