WELCOME to the Ginger City! 

I'm Ranya Renée, New York-based international bellydancer and stage presence coach, the founder of the Breathwork for Performance method, the Bring Your Best! performance coaching program, and the Ginger City online membership.

I have a passion for all the little details of what makes the mind tick and the body dance, with the goal of building physical and mental confidence that can extend to all areas of your life. I feel lucky to be able to bring it all together in my eclectic work.

Here at the GC you'll find my Egyptian dance and cultural programming,  theatrical dance training, cognitive exploration, weekly live/recorded classes, material for performers and teachers, interesting guest presenters, and lively discussion.

Fall 2019 will bring the Baladi Salon Series to all GC members, new musicality and technique training, shamadan (candelabra) balancing and finger cymbals courses, as well as the new site forum for members! Plus some new special guest interviews. If you are a real bellydance geek, you gotta join us.

NO RISK TO TRY: There is a 24-hour free trial period before billing, so there is no risk to try the membership and see if it is what you want. If you love it, stay! If it's not for you, you can cancel within those 24 hours and not be billed. If you are a super geek who wants to dig deep into your technique and the culture around it, I bet you'll find plenty to inspire you here.

If you have purchased courses or other resources from me in the past, you can log in on the new Membership GC site to get access to the material in the GC members' area. If you have purchased previous courses, you can renew your access to the content on the new site by joining the GC membership.

Join our free Ginger City Facebook group for Facebook Live talks and dance teaching demos, a bit of inspiration, and announcements!
Happy dancing!        -Ranya Renée
