Perhaps you've been teaching movement classes for a while now, or maybe you are new and just getting accustomed to the feeling of having all student's eyes on you. Either way, putting yourself out there as an expert in your field in front of dozens of students every week can be a daunting experience.
Why would anyone want to study with YOU when there are so many other people out there just as qualified to be teaching (or more!)?
Who are YOU to claim to know enough to be able to lead a classroom of people?
What if you're not good enough/strong enough/graceful enough/organized enough to keep your classes going week after week?
Does any of this sound familiar?
I have news for you...
It's TOTALLY NORMAL and WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE!
Even the biggest names in the field were unsure to begin with and almost everyone has experienced imposter syndrome at some point in time. It's ok and totally natural to feel unsure and worried that you don't have what it takes.
Please don't let that hold you back from offering your talents to the world!
I'm here to tell you that what you have to offer is unique and wonderful and important for your students and they are depending on YOU to get out there and share your talents with them and with the world!
Not sure you have what it takes? Then this is the course for you.
I invite you to join me as we explore ways to "Get Into the Groove".
We will discuss how to tackle imposter syndrome and build confidence for your classes (and your daily life!) We will work through a series of concrete exercises, both physical and written to help you tease out exactly what you are worried about, why you are worried about it, and what it means for you and your classes. We will explore class organization and 5 habits of highly successful instructors that you can easily incorporate into how you create and organize your classes today.
In the end, the goal is to get you pumped up and excited about this amazing gift you have to offer the world and help you find a place of flow and groove that you can come back to week after week in order to create incredible movement classes that will keep your students engaged and joyful and you feeling positive and confident about your work.
What's more, once you register you will gain access to my private online Facebook group where we can connect more personally to answer any remaining questions or doubts.
I look forward to helping you overcome insecurity, find flow and get into your groove in the movement teaching world!
"When I started teaching online, it was a very quick decision (like 2 days), and the biggest obstacle was ME! I felt like 'who was I to take my classes online', and 'i don't have the set up I need'. Imposter syndrome was in full force. This course helped me put those fears and anxieties into perspective and give me tools I could use right away. It was the boost I needed and I'm on my second session of class with expanded offerings. Believe in yourself and your abilities, you can do it!"

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!
