Rosa Noreen founded the Grace Academy to help dancers add depth and dimension to their work so they grow in confidence to take their places on stage and in the world.
Based in Portland, Maine, where she teaches weekly classes at her studio, Bright Star World Dance, Rosa travels nationwide to perform and teacher her suite of Grace Academy workshops. Recent festival teaching engagements include the Las Vegas Belly Dance Intensive; Cairo Caravan in Long Beach, CA; the Asheville Belly Dance Festival in Asheville, NC; and the Dancers’ Intensive in Atlanta, GA.
Rosa’s instructional DVD, “Delicious Pauses: Negative Space in Movement”, has sold around the world. Her upcoming releases include “Visionary Variations”, “Rhythm & Pause”, and an innovative rhythms CD with music by Jonatan Derbaq of Memphis, TN.
With a strong ballet background and a deep love of Egyptian Golden Era dance, Rosa’s workshops incorporate lines, pauses, balance, projection, and the art of being in the moment–elements that truly raise the level of your dance.
