Shay Moore of Deep Roots Dance
-Strong Roots, Mighty Tree * Sat Aug 11, 2:30-4:30p
Shay Moore has been teaching and performing bellydance in Seattle and around the nation since 1999.
Shay believes in an integrated approach to learning, developing both mind and body through strong foundations and a “take your time” approach to learning and growing in the dance. Shay is known for her thorough and clear instruction, giving students of all levels opportunities to not only grow in their physical skill, but also their intellectual understanding of the dance format and history. Her trained instructors strive to give individual attention, and students are encouraged to ask any and all questions throughout their classes.
Shay was the first instructor to receive dual teaching certifications in both the Gypsy Caravan and ATS® formats. Combined with her foundations in cabaret and folkloric styles, this has allowed her to study and appreciate the many beautiful faces of bellydance, integrating them into her teaching and choreography. Shay has been teaching popular weekly classes in the Seattle area and workshops around the nation for almost 20 years. She was founder and co-director of the much-beloved inFusion Tribal Bellydance, and currently directs Deep Roots Dance Company and student troupe Nomaditude. Shay has had the honor of being hosted as a featured instructor and performer at some of the largest tribal bellydance festivals in the world, including Tribal Fest, Tribal Revolution, Tribal Quest Northwest, and 3rd Coast Tribal.
In 2017 she opened her own multi-use studio, Studio Deep Roots, which hosts fabulous dance and movement artists alongside healing and aesthetic practitioners in an eclectic, heart-centered environment.
