To some of the most beautiful & loving women I know!
You truly bring joyous laughter wherever you

I love watching the Feshies - you are such beauties, amazing, & make everything look so fun! Elene Gusch your solo was so lovely and I loved the story behind it - just so touching! It was such an amazing night for me and I want to say a big thanks to each of you!!! Love & blessings to you all & I look forward to next time!

Farfesha means "Joyous Laughter," something we strive to incorporate into our Egyptian style Belly D

Operating as usual


Ooooo! And we almost forgot! Tonight is the Night on the Nile at Sirena Studio! Theresa al Farfesha will be performing along with an amazing collection of dancers. Very limited tickets are still available so get yours asap. Visit www.sirenastudio.com


Leyla was one of our absolute favorite dancer and teachers. She was sweet and kind and encouraging and so down to earth. It was one of the highlights of my career and of Farfesha's performance life to teach and perform at her absolutely incredible festival, but what I'll remember most is her in the backseat of my car, holding my little daughter's hand as they dozed after a hike in the mountains. The world is a darker place without her beautiful light.

Für meine große Liebe Leyla ist nach langer, schwerer Krankheit am 21.05.2022 der letzte Vorhang gefallen.

Voller Dankbarkeit schaue ich auf eine 37-jährige innige Liebe und tiefe Verbundenheit zurück. Sie war der Mittelpunkt meines Lebens und unserer 30-jährigen Bühnenkarriere. Mir war es vergönnt mein Leben mit einer außergewöhnlichen Frau, Choreographin und Tänzerin zu teilen.

Gemeinsam durften wir die Welt erkunden und unzählige fantastische Menschen/Künstler, Tänzerinnen und Tänzer, kennenlernen und weltweit viele Freundschaften erfahren.
In großer Dankbarkeit an unser Publikum und unsere Gäste, unser geliebtes Ensemble, unsere Projektgruppen und Workshopteilnehmer, Künstlerkolleginnen, Juroren, Contestanten, Sponsoren, Fotografen, Techniker, Fachzeitungen, Agenturen, Veranstalter, Händler, Helfer, Freunde und Familie und die vielen Anderen verneigen wir uns ein letztes Mal.

In tiefer Trauer
Euer Roland Jouvana

Die Beisetzung findet am 01.06.2022 um 12.00 Uhr in der Kapelle des „Alten Friedhofs“ in 47057 Duisburg-Neudorf, Sternbuschweg 295 statt.

Ich bitte um Nachsicht, dass die Antwort auf Beileidsbekundungen aufgrund der vielen Zuschriften etwas mehr Zeit in Anspruch nehmen kann. Vielen Dank für Eure Anteilnahme.


Happy ! Theresa al Farfesha will be joining Shimmy Mob on Saturday, May 14 at the downtown growers market! If you aren't familiar with Shimmy Mob, it is a great cause that supports domestic violence causes throughout the world. The ABQ Shimmy Mob will be supporting SAFE House this year.

Because this meme never gets old...but also....does this argument go through your head as a dancer? Happy !


Happy ! We are so excited because our favorite night of the month is tomorrow as we present the Performance Salon at Taaj Palace. Show starts at 7 p.m. Let's give thanks for being able to dance in person again and to support the best Indian Cuisine restaurant in New Mexico! Hope to see you there. ✨💜✨

We'd like to send a big virtual hug to our dear friend Amaya MariaElena as she and Pete recover from a car accident earlier in May. She has given us so much inspiration over the years. Let's send that back to her through good thoughts, blessings and love as she recovers. We love you Amaya!


What a week of celebrations...graduations, milestones, actual "in-person" interaction! But we ALWAYS love this time of year because we get to celebrate a week of birthday happiness for these two fabulous and ALWAYS so poised 😂😂 ladies.

Please give a great big joyous birthday wish to Michelle and Debi!
