Raqs Artist Project Winter 2016

  • Movement Art Space 3326 Verdugo Road Los Angeles, CA 90065 (map)

The Raqs Artist Project is the culmination of years of training, performing, experience, research, teaching, listening, and creating. 

This is a unique mentorship program created, directed, and facilitated by Aubre Hill for ANY style of bellydance. Raqs Sharqi, Cabaret, Fusion, etc artists are all encouraged to apply. 

Dancers must apply to be in this program which will include technique training, artistic development, one on one mentorship, and a full performance. 

The nuts & bolts:
A small group of dancers will be accepted based upon goals, commitment, and artistic dedication. This group will meet Sundays 5:45-7:00pm at MAS for creative lessons, lectures, and group assignments. Additionally dancers will have a MAS pass to attend 3 classes a week (Aubre will help select which would be most beneficial) during the program. This program will start Sunday January 10th and complete Sunday March 27th, 2016. Total cost for this 12 week program is $600 and can be split into monthly payments. Dancers will also need to purchase selected books, notebook, and costuming for performance. Costs of these materials can creatively be kept to a minimum of an estimated $100-200. Scholarship & Work Trade can be available under specific circumstances. 

Interested dancers must submit a full application by Wednesday, December 16th, 2015. Application should include a dance resume, links to recent work, and an essay about where you would like to take your dancing, what is your dream/ goal. This can be emailed to or sent to MAS, 3326 Verdugo Road, Los Angeles, CA 90065. 

Applicants will be chosen by Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015 and an email will be sent with full schedule and assignment list. 

Payment will be due before our first meeting Sunday January 10th, 2016. 

Scholarship/Work Trade: 
For dancers interested in this program but not financially able to pay the full tuition, include in your application an essay as to why you should be eligible for a scholarship and what skills you may be able to offer in exchange for tuition.

We look forward to the art and growth that will come from this amazing program! MAS LOVE!
