More than the usual studio experience.
Studio Deep Roots is a project that has been percolating for a long time. We had been renting and teaching out of other studios and community centers for 20 years and had learned a lot about what makes a studio–and classes and workshops within them–successful.
Coming and going from “someone else’s space” can feel impersonal, disconnected, and lacking in our own unique energies. Those energies imbued in all facets of our work are what makes those we serve feel like they have arrived someplace special, and that unique “us-ness” is missing from so many studio experiences.
We want to change that.
We believe we can do it differently,
maybe even a little better…
We invite our instructors, practitioners, and those they host here to feel at home, to feel invested, and to feel a part of something a little bigger than we might offer individually.
Seeing a need within the Seattle bellydance community–indeed, the arts and small business communities throughout our region–our director Shay Moore set out to create a space to connect with other like-minded artists. The goal was build out into a hub of creativity, connection, and cross-pollination. With the generous help of her fellow dancers and community members, and an ongoing crowdfunding campaign, Studio Deep Roots came to life in the summer of 2017. It continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of all who work and play here.
Shay considers the studio an extension of her home and hearth, and invites all comers to come in, slow down, and steep in the good spirit we imbue in this space through joyful, committed work and play.
