Sacred Earth belly dance originates with Mishaal, international Oriental dance artist as well as founder and creative director of Devadasi studio in Tokyo. Having spent many years traveling the world, visiting and searching for the heart and soul of many cultures in their music and in their dance, she created a deep sensual healing dance form based in the mystical roots of belly dance.
The dance takes the primordial sacred movements found in belly dance in their raw form, acknowledges each dancer's spirit, our innate knowledge, and the beautiful and essential connection between ourselves and Mother Earth. It is founded on strong musical sensibility, the dancer's expression, an acknowledgment of the seasons and cycles of our lives, as well as a deep sense of surrendering yourself to the moment and feeling the deep relaxation and joy that dance can bring your soul and your body.
Hannah Mi Anis was fortunate enough to spend her first three years in Mishaal's original group of students in Tokyo. She performed as a member of Samanyolu, her dance ensemble, and began teaching under her guidance. From 2010-2014 she held a yearly month long residency in the Devadasi studio in Tokyo, and in 2015 Hannah traveled to Bali to be Mishaal's guest teacher on her Sacred Mystical dance retreat amongst the rice fields of Ubud. Mishaal, now living in Bali and holding many retreats per year, remains an important guide for her in dance and life.
On returning to London Hannah Mi Anis, was inspired by and followed the ever growing Tribal belly dance movement. She followed a new pathway learning to weave the two styles together enjoying the juxtaposition of the energy and strength of the many generations of Tribal, with the elemental charge of Sacred Earth belly dance.

I am feeling excited and grateful to have Hannah Mi Anis´first retreat of Sacred Earth Bellydance in Spain this April.
A 5 days retreat in Spain being enchanted by Hannah´s signature blend of Sacred Earth Bellydance interwoven with the structure and strength of many generations of Tribal belly dance.
Expect a cascade of sensation, a conjuring of words, full bloodied dance sequences interweaving the full spectrum of the elements of fire, water, earth, air and ether; a gaze at the energy embedded in the raw DNA of each moment.
It will be held at The Dome, in Alcalali, (Alicante) Spain. from the 8th to the 13th of April 2017, for more information, please visit
