Mira Betz has been pushing the boundaries of dance to encompass art in all its forms throughout her career.
For the last 5 years, Mira has created pieces that have adopted cast members from around the globe, allowing dancers an intimate chance to be a part of Mira's artistic process and vision. And this year it continues with Mirapiece Theater!
This alive, raw, experiential, storytelling adventure- that we squeeze under the umbrella of bellydance- is looking for an extended dance family of cast members and you are invited into our journey! Join as a cast member, support team, or just come see how Mira's brain works.
This Roving Theatrical Dance Experience is a full weekend of intense training that culminates in the presentation of two fully-developed theatrical pieces choreographed, directed, and costumed by Mira Betz. Learn storytelling, musicality, character development, and costuming. Expand your performance skills, create community, and laugh! Be a part of the creative process! Limited to 20 intermediate/advanced students. Ten dancers in each choreography workshop all be selected to perform. Participation does not require or guarantee a performance spot.
Not to worry if you don't get to perform this time. With a possible East Coast tour in our sights, we will be looking for skilled dancers to be a part of this experience!
