Welcome to ScheherazadeSchool.com, a virtual platform dedicated to dance, culture, art, music, storytelling, and healing
My name is Hannah Romanowsky. I am a professional performing artist, dance teacher, educator, speaker, creative solopreneur, and advocate for dance and music as vital components of a healthy, happy life. ScheherazadeSchool.com is my virtual platform for celebrating the embodied wisdom of multicultural dance arts from East to West.
This virtual “school” is dedicated to reawakening the ancient bond between dance and healing. The information presented here highlights the rich and diverse performing arts traditions from the Middle East and beyond in service to joy, beauty, and well-being.
As a professional dance artist, educator, and coach, I bring 35 years of experience to my work with students, clients, and audiences. In addition to drawing from an eclectic career as a performing artist and decades of study in world dance traditions, my perspective is informed by ethnography, psychology, ecstatic spirituality, and somatic healing. This multidisciplinary approach honors the history and practice of traditional movement arts as vehicles for healing and spiritual transformation.
This website is named after the literary heroine and narrator of the collection of tales known in the West as 1001 Nights or Arabian Nights. Scheherazade (pronounced Sha-hair-aa-zaad) is my muse, for her story exemplifies the power of art to transform the human heart. Learn more about her HERE.
