ABOUT ME
Hannah Mi Anis is a London based dancer and instructress. Her dance is rooted in the energy, technique and philosophy of Tribal Fusion and  Sacred Earth belly dance; a dance with respect for nature and the elements, woman's innate knowledge, the language of archetypes and each individual's spiritual depth.
 
For 16 years now she has followed the search for an authentic and wild life through the lens of music, dance and poetry of the body. Her travels took her to Japan, Bali, California and India, to Turkey, Morocco and Southern Europe; dancing on rooftops, brightly lit stages, underground nightclubs, castle walls, and amongst the rich and earthy energy of the great forest.  The fabric of her dance is decorated with each experience. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
She has completed extensive theory and physical training in Middle Eastern Belly dance of many styles, Mystical Dance, Classical Indian Dance (Odissi), Middle Eastern Music Comprehension and Yoga.  Her foremost teacher and guide is Mishaal of the Devadasi studio (Bali/Tokyo) and has completed further studies with Colleena Shakti of the Shakti school of dance in Rajhastan. She currently studies American Tribal style under Philippa Moirai and Yoga in the school of Sivananda. Hannah is also currently studying to be a Doula under the guidance of Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers, and in 2016 became a qualified Well Woman Yoga Therapy practitioner under the guidance of Uma-Dinsmore-Tuli, author of Yoni Shakti.
 
She is co-founder and co-artistic director of the FireWater Collective, a co-operative of dancers working together, creating women’s' circles, visionary performances and hosting the space for advanced learning. Her dance ethic is centred on the belief that dance is a rite of passage and sacred rite is a holistic and natural part of life.
