Wedding/Events Choreographer


20 per hour - - Posted Jan 30, 2017

I will work with you to create a unique personal dance for weddings, parties, special events, or just for fun. Solos, duets and groups welcome. All bodies can dance! Whether you have a disability or physical impairment or are just terrified to dance in front of others - I will help you discover YOUR unique movement vocabulary and virtuosity. All people, couples, and groups are welcome. For choreography sessions we will decide together on how many sessions to have depending on event and the complexity of the dance/choreography.

My particular interest and specialty is creating dance for/with people and couples with disabilities and mobility impairments.

All sessions will be held at a North Portland dance studio. If you have another location in mind, let me know and I'll try to make it work.

Training & Qualifications

I have been dancing, performing, teaching and choreographing for the last 15 years. I have a BA in Dance from the University of Washington and have trained with CandoCo Dance Co. in London. I have worked with and taught people of all ages and abilities. I believe that all bodies can dance and are meant to dance. If you can breathe (assisted or not) then you can dance. Inspiration for choreography is all around us, even in the everyday mundane tasks.

I am wanting to start a wedding choreography business and would love some clients to build my portfolio.

Availability & Preferences

My schedule is flexible. Let's talk!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Yulia Arakelyan

Hello! I'm a dancer, performer and choreographer from Portland, OR. I co-direct a dance theatre company called Wobbly. We create dance films, installations and live performances that are often surreal... and dreamlike. I'm a disability activist and advocate. I believe that disability rights are civil rights and affect all of us. I love food - growing it, eating it, cooking with it. I love to read non-fiction books. The last book I read was about the dancing plague of 1518. Right now I'm reading The Hidden Lives of Trees. I'm a huge Star Trek fan, I finally admit it!show more
