The Sanaa Movement
Deanna  Marshall - Executive Director
Sharran Chambers-Murphy- Director
Simone Brown - Artistic Director


Sanaa participants are comprised of all Christian denominations. We have been blessed by Westbury United Methodist Church, with the use of their social hall, where our weekly classes are held. At Sanaa we teach personal devotion and liturgical dance. Personal devotion is for everyone at every age and level of physical ability.

Our mission and goal at Sanaa is to bring participants into the wisdom of prosperous health through spiritual enlightenment using dance and personal devotion.  And to inspire participants to worship and praise for better health physically and spiritually.


In this space participants will be part of God’s peace; freedom; love; to enable the creative spirit to become alive in them; a space where they will not be judged and false images of self can be eliminated.   We are here for one purpose only; we are here to worship and praise God through dance.
