Performance Intensive with Mira Betz

April 11-16th 2017 Berkeley  CA The Works Studio 2566 Telegraph Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704

A unique, versatile approach to the bellydance intensive, a weeklong designed for experienced dancers, already performing, who are looking for inspiration from an artistic standpoint and who are interested in honing their ability to express through dance. This intimate group exploration will stretch your notions of how dance can be striking on stage, and allow you to unlock new areas of creativity in your bodies, and your mind. The seminar brings together many of the styles and forms from dance to theater which Mira has carefully integrated into an exciting, powerful, liberating approach to creation, including: personal expression, musicality, historical and contemporary contextual analysis, structured improvisation and choreography, focused writing exercises and more. Thanks ladies, looking forward to dancing together! Information and registration

Testimonials- “Friends. Studying with Mira in an intensive environment is, without a doubt, one of the best investments I’ve ever made for my dance. She is one of the premier artists of our time in our form, but rather than solely focusing on passing on her style or brand of artistry/movement, (which, I mean, we’d pay for that am I right?) she has committed herself to mentoring other artists and helping them find their own voices. She will crack you open – but in a safe and supportive environment. I’ve never walked away without feeling I’d somehow discovered myself a little more, heard my own voice more clearly. I’ve never walked away without feeling, at once, challenged and validated. How does she do that? I don’t know. What do know is that you want this.” J Downum
