Workshop “Bellydance 101”

25. March 2023 14:00

Meeting Point: Queerdom, Queeres Jugendzentrum Berlin-Mitte, Villa Lützow, Lützowstraße 28, 10785 Berlin
Duration: 2 PM – 5 PM

Let’s move together! Professional bellydancer Prince Emrah walks you through the basics of bellydance. Together we want to dance to express, not to impress. Please bring some comfortable clothes, and we’ll provide the rest.

All genders welcome, all bodies welcome! For teenagers and young adults up to 21. This is a free workshop and part of the program „fun and easy queer glitter BOOM“: the Queer Youth Center and the Gay Museum are located right next to each other in the Regenbogenkiez. Together with us, Prince Emrah has put together a workshop program for 2023 that explores queer perspectives on performance. This will entail drag, belly dance, Afrofusion dance, singing, costume, hair and makeup workshops for the stage and everyday life, as well as sound checks, queer art and movement history at the museum, and karaoke and roller skating parties.

With a look behind the scenes, this project aims to offer youth and young adults direct access to queer lived realities and issues. In workshop formats specifically designed for this program, experts from diverse queer communities address topics such as identity, creativity, performativity, dance and queer history.

To put it in Prince Emrah’s words, “It should be a fun and easy project, queer, with lots of glitter and just boom!
