Our new home!
Yes, it’s true. We are moving. But just like we might move our family from our longtime home into a new house in a new neighborhood, the Salimpour School is doing the same. Our new home will be with Mahea’s school, a beautiful, airy space in West Berkeley, not far from the Albany studio.
Having a warm, welcoming, and comfortable home is very important to me. So much so that I named the basic body alignment in my format “Home Position.” As of April 2018, Mahea’s studio will be our new “Home Position.”
We will continue to offer weekly classes and workshops as we have for years in Albany. And our weeklong intensive schedule will remain the same.
But, truly, the “Mothership” is wherever I have my home studio. It’s wherever I am.
Staying Connected with the Wider Dance Community
I’m also so excited about this new development for the Salimpour School because Mahea’s space is home to other respected dance professionals in the Bay Area. As the Bay Area dance community faces economic and financial obstacles, it’s so important that we find like minds and stick together. It’s up to all of us to keep the arts alive and vibrant in the face of great change.
Our merge signals an important and necessary shift in our school’s development and goals as being significant players in the Bay Area’s vibrant dance scene.
And as we expand with Salimpour School Satellites taught by our Level 5 dancers, and kickstart our online certifications for Suhaila and Jamila Level 1, and embark on a year-long tour celebrating the art and legacy of Bal Anat, we are truly stronger than ever.
