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.


We are so grateful to our teachers for sharing their work at the conference, for creating an atmosphere of community, and for inspiring so much creativity and growth: Anasma, Ranya Renée, Aszmara, Blanca, Aepril Schaile, Anahid Sofian, Dalia Carella, Donna Mejia, Elena Lentini, Illan Riviere, Kaeshi Chai,
Oreet, Pete List, Sarah Skinner, Tjarda, Yasmina Ramzy.
