Just a few months ago, Taliah Performing Arts Center, a 3,600 square foot rehearsal/performance venue located in Carroll Gardens/Gowanus, opened its doors to empower women through the performing arts. Founded by Tamar Reich, the center at 303 Bond Street (between Union and Sackett) offers both acting and dance studios just for women. Classes are given every day and include Scene Study, Belly Dancing, Flamenco and starting this week, Irsaeli Folk Dancing.

The cost is $64 a month, $20 drop in. $15 first trial class for Carroll Gardens residence.

So, if you haven't discovered Taliah yet, make sure to stop by to check out this unique place and sign up for a class.
From the center's web site:
With an emphasis on the craft of acting and the art of dance, taught by an acclaimed and international diverse group of teachers, Taliah is a space for women to have fun, tap into their inner child, dig deep into their souls, create, inspire and be inspired within the safety of an embracing women’s-only environment. The acting and dance studio will have a special division for kids and teenage girls to encourage and help them find expression and confidence through the exploration of these powerful mediums. Taliah will also provide a showcase for the monologues, scenes and dance compositions in special evenings celebrating the courage and beauty of these powerful women. Taliah not only encourages women to create their own work and stories but will also offer professional guidance that will allow them to excel in doing so.

Taliah which was born out of a one woman’s need for a creative outlet, is proud in being a place that will give room and opportunities to all women including women from the Jewish communities to help change the reality derived from the limited resources out there to express their creativity, and to lift the barriers that keep them from creating and expressing their own personal journeys.
