Oh where has Hanady run off to? Her father's men are looking for her and boy are they mad!
This Sassy Saidi choreography places YOU in the roll of Hanady - and it turns out you have run off to the sports club to have a fabulous fun time doing lots of naughty things! Don't worry... I won't tell them where to find you!
If a little girls' vacation sounds good to you, join me for this incredibly sassy 4 1/2 minute Saidi cane choreography.
I'll take you through all the steps you need to beautifully perform this folkloric piece - from choosing a cane, to the basics of Saidi movements and cane work. Each combination is broken in to segments that focus on technique, then pieces together the steps and drilling multiple times without music and then again with.
It's a cane swinging', hair-tossing good time and I invite you to join the party!
This choreography is suitable for advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced dancers.
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!
