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.

Calling all dancers, directors, dance teachers and scholars!



We are excited to announce our call for performer and presenter submissions for inclusion at the next New York Theatrical Bellydance Conference, June 6-10, 2013. For detailed guidelines for submission, visit our pages for performers and presenters.

It is fine to apply for a performer spot as well as a presentation spot if you wish, or for more than one performance proposal; submit completed separate applications with fees for each.

The deadline for performer/presenter applications has been EXTENDED to November 1st. We have some more information about our shows and locations this year that may affect your applications, so we want to give you a little more time. Many thanks to those of you who have already submitted! Submitting early is helpful, because we have time to see if anything is missing from your application. However, if you need to make additions or changes to your application based on the following information, please contact us.

Anyone who wishes to guarantee themselves a performing slot at the conference, including open-stage slots, should submit an application (you can indicate if you are interested in open stage only). We recommend that you submit an application by November 1st in order to be guaranteed a performance slot. If there are still slots available after November 15th, they will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

ALL applications are eligible to receive brief typed comments from the panel of judges. Please indicate at the time of application if you’d like to receive comments. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the application process and contribute to your growth as an artist.
