TAOD is a traveling workshop designed to bring |Dance Movement| to as many people as possible in a supportive and joyful environment. Learn how integrating simple ballet basics in a movement practice can cultivate mindfulness and help to achieve a dynamic state of self-expression and individual artistry.

This is a true beginning ballet & movement class — for all levels and ALL abilities!

For those:
• who are already a student of dance, and want to gain a better understanding of basic technique fundamentals or "go deeper" into the technique
• who always wanted to learn how to dance, but thought that they missed their window of opportunity
• who are intimidated by big, professional looking classes, even if they advertise as beginner-friendly
• who want to bring freedom and expansion to their current movement practice
•Or, who are simply looking to broaden their mind and body both spiritually and artistically in a supportive, non-intimidating environment.

• Loose, comfortable clothing that you can move in.
• Footwear: bare feet, or ballet shoes (only if you already have them). Socks optional.
• Bring a bottle of water and a notebook if you like.


An hour and a half class that starts with a seated warm-up, moves to the barre for placement and alignment, and explores movement in the center of the room.

Personal attention and individual hands on adjustments for the safest movement experience

You will be guided to discover what dance movement means for you in your body, using the basic principles of technique for structure and safety.

Expect to move, stretch and sweat, but know that you can take breaks and observe at any time.

About Miriam Golomb:

Miriam started her training in Philadelphia at the Olga Kresin Ballet School when she was 8 years old. When she was 15, she was chosen to compete at the XI international Ballet Competition, held in Moscow at the Bolshoi Theater. She continued her education at The North Carolina School of the Arts, and spent summers training in Washington, Boston, Budapest, Moscow, and Odessa Ukraine.

After graduating, Miriam danced professionally with the Louisville Ballet, Ohio Dance Theater, Columbia Classical Ballet, The Alabama Ballet, and The Georgia Ballet.

After moving permanently to Atlanta, she became a founding member of Proia Dance Project, and has performed as a guest artist with Tanz Farm, Fly on a Wall, Sky Creature and The Atlanta Opera. She is now part of a yearlong study entitled sunday morning at 7.

In 2017, Miriam began to build the first of the workshop series after realizing that many of her clients in the fitness world had a desire to explore dance movement in a more personal way, but were too intimidated to begin. TAOD was born as a bridge into movement, aiming to facilitate this self expression in a supportive environment.
