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.


“One of the most well-presented, intelligent, and organized retreats I’ve attended in a long time”
“I always am afraid that I will sound cheesy when I say things like this, but the conference out there really felt like a pivotal moment for me as a dancer and as a woman in general… I always try to do what I am passionate about, but sometimes I wonder if its really what I should be doing, or whether there is anyone out there that thinks and creates in the same way… and to have an entire CONFERENCE devoted to actresses who bellydance completely validated my career choice. To have one that accentuated compassion, inspiration, and so many profound human concepts was just breathtaking, and very rare. I am very critical of organization and conscious of my “time and money” being potentially wasted at events (As I am a “broke-as-a-joke college student” :)But I feel like this was one of the most well-presented, intelligent, and organized retreats I’ve attended in a long time.”

“I am an art educator and have attended literally hundreds of professional conferences, conventions and workshops. This was a very well organized event and the staff were helpful and supportive. I absolutely loved this event! I felt like everyone involved really cared about every participant and each and every teacher gave 1000 percent! I left feeling totally nourished, empowered and definitely a part of something unique and very special. …Encouraging participants to stay in one path created a powerful experience. It allowed me to get to know fellow dancers and the instructors very well… I appreciated that the focus was not on technique, but more on feeling, intuition and tools for dancers to take home and incorporate in their own teaching or practice... It was a blast to get into role playing, rolling on the ground, making faces, relishing our bodies!
What a pleasure.”

“I loved the workshops and the daily lunch discussions. The “Body Love” taught by Kaeshi was just what I needed. After this class, I was more confident about my body and seeing myself as a better dancer. Everyone involved was so helpful and professional, and the evening shows were unique and wonderful to see. I’m looking forward to future workshops.
Kudos Theatrrical Bellydance on a job well done!”
