RAQS SHARQI was the first dance genre I learned. When I hear Middle Eastern music, my heart swells with love and emotion. While my professional career in musical theatre & on camera acting gave me years of stage time, belly dancing is in fact very personal for me. I feel beautiful when I dance and proud of my culture!

Begin your RAQISA® dance journey by watching our introduction to the basic belly dance movements with our RAQISA® belly dance teaching mat as a visual aid. Notice the isolated hip movements and the postural alignment. These videos will demystify the basics with step by step instructions. Next, try a sample of our one minute dancing drills! Your big picture goal is to run each drill with our posture plate on your head, nice alignment, with elegant (and relaxed) hands & posturing!
If you discover that you are serious about your learning, I recommend you rehearse the drills frequently and condition your body to maintain your best dance posture. Serious students of RAQISA® show great improvement at a rapid pace when committing to the learning the fundamentals and support it with dance & barre fitness conditioning.
