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.



New York, New York, city of options. We’ve listed some hotels, short-term apartments, and hostel options for you here. Choose to stay close to the workshops in Midtown, in the eclectic Greenwich Village or East Village neighborhoods (close to the performance and party venues), or a bit farther out for budget accommodations. We recommend YMCAs. Scroll down for details.

2 Saint Marks Place
New York, NY
$93.94 $102.76 St. Marks Hotel on St. Marks Place in the East Village – very close to our closing party. It’s basic and may be a little noisy from street noise as it’s in a nightlife area – but if you like being close to the action, it’s central, not expensive by NYC standards, and close to subways. Nice to share. It’s a short subway ride from workshops, and extremely close by walking to closing night show. Please note there is no elevator.
