Other than spending ample time teaching herself and practicing on her own, Saba studied and performed West African dance with Franklin & Marshall College African Dance Group (USA) and Sonya Mann-McFarlane of Imani Edu-tainers (USA). She studied Bellydance with Yasmina Ramzy and Denise Mireau of Arabesque Academy. Teachers of DLM, National Dance of Canada, and DoDat have shaped her Hip Hop skills. She also continues to take dance workshops from many instructors including Aida Nour, Tito, Randa Kamal, Mbemba Bengoura and others.
