Josephine Wise Academy of Arabic Dance (JWAAD)

Johara Dance is associated with JWAAD – the largest school of Middle Eastern dance in the UK. JWAAD runs the UK’s only externally accredited courses in Middle Eastern dance and dance teaching.

Numerous members of the company have JWAAD qualifications in teaching and performance, and, as qualified teachers, they are keen to promote interest in our imaginative dance style. We offer workshops wherever we perform.



Audiences at previous shows commented on how inspiring it is to see dancers onstage with whom they can identify. Previous members of our diverse company have overcome debilitating illnesses including cancer, asthma, EDS and arthritis. Throughout our history, we have found ways to work around chronic conditions and still perform magnificently.
