Hello dance family,
Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and are still relaxing at home
surrounded by loved ones.
Get What You Need is coming back this season, and while we missed the

As always, email if you have any questions and/or let me know if you'd like
to share anything on December 8th.

You get what you need.
Email Zornitsa to reserve your 30min spot at zornitsa at herebegindance.com
<mailto:zornitsa at herebegindance.com> . Its first come first serve. Email if
you want a spot in another date too.
Get what you need is a way to support and engage in conversation about the
work and life of a dance maker. You can do whatever you want with your time
(show a piece, talk about a concept, go through budgets, brainstorm funding,
anything connected to you as a dancer and dance maker). Invite your friends
and collaborators - low stakes, good conversation!
Zornitsa will be present and available as a resource.
Events will be open to the public, but not heavily marketed, so it really is
from the dance community for the dance community. If no one signs for a slot
on a particular date, event will be canceled.

Explicit Female) performance artist, curator, writer, lighting and video
designer based in Philadelphia, PA. A native of Bulgaria, she produces and
presents both her own and other's work under the name Here[begin] Dance.
In performance, she questions the ideas of the constructed structures of the
theater and pushes the boundaries of social propriety though audience
interaction. Mylar reflective material and custom lighting are integral part
of her most recent stage, video, and photography work. Since becoming a

feminist ideas and imagery.
Zornitsa also seeks out professional development opportunities researching
art practices in isolating gesture and communication and looking for
emotional content and potential for meaning. Her most influential teachers

Houston Jones, Susan Rethorst, Fay Driscoll, Luciana Achugar, Danny Lepkoff.
She has performed for Eiko & Koma, Boris Charmatz, Cie. Willy Dorner, Lionel

invested in helping further conversation and collaboration. As Here[begin]
