Silk Road & Middle Eastern Dance Workshops, Courses, Performances, and Presentations with Hannah Romanowsky, M.A.

Welcome to, my virtual platform for workshops, classes, and other resources highlighting the dance arts of the Silk Road, Middle East, and North Africa.

This virtual Dance & Sacred Movement school is dedicated to reawakening the ancient bond between dance and healing.  Offerings highlight the rich and diverse performing arts traditions from the Middle East and beyond in service to joy, beauty, and well-being.

As a professional dance artist, educator, and coach, I bring 35 years of experience to my work with students, clients, and audiences.  My perspective is informed by studies in ethnography, psychology, ecstatic spirituality, and somatic healing. This multidisciplinary approach honors the history and practice of traditional movement arts as vehicles of spiritual expression and transformation.

A week later and still relishing in the magical afterglow! Seriously, much to my surprise I am still reaping the benefits and riding the waves of such a weekend. Personally it was an end of an era, and what better way to initiate a new beginning, than to breathe in new life with ritual, spinning, baddass women, wonderful food, perfect location and gorgeous weather. Outstanding!
