Theatrical Bellydance Conference | New York City

Donate to Theatrical Bellydance!
We wish to bring people together, to allow diverse artists to find common ground and interests. This is an environment where dancers of all bellydance styles can work together in classes, learn together and learn from each other. The instructors, who come from a variety of bellydance genres and backgrounds of experience, will be offering workshops that will have something for everyone; not just focused on genre-specific bellydance technique, but more on universals that everyone can feel a part of, and that you can apply to your own work.


Wow, what an amazing response to our campaign! We are so grateful for the outpouring of support and generosity from all of you – more than 53 different donors on this campaign alone. We have heard your voice of support, loudly and clearly, that the New York Theatrical Bellydance Conference needs to happen every year! It gives us as directors the strength and the will to make it happen, because people like you show us how much you care about it.

With your help, we not only made our financial goal of covering our main technical and rental costs for the beautiful DNA theater in our shows this June, but we now have a little bit extra to put towards our deposit for next year’s rental in mid June, 2014.

It really does take a village, as they say, to make an event like this happen, and you have made us feel strongly how much we are a part of the community, by joining us here. We will aspire to keep serving you, to keep providing a forum for great art, great education, great discussion, and great friendships and to help this gathering to flourish.

We have listed ALL donors on our website, regardless of amount donated, and amounts will not be listed on the site. If you wish to be listed anonymously (without your name), OR if you’re a dancer who wants us to list you by a stage name instead of by a legal name, just send us a message here to let us know. If you know people who’d like to support us but didn’t get in before the midnight deadline, we are still accepting donations on our website or by PayPal directly to (with a memo to let us know what it’s for :-) Rewards levels will be the same as for this Kickstarter campaign.
