Do I need a barre for the training? No. A sturdy chair approximately hip height will work nicely as an at home option.
Do I need to know how to belly dance to teach this format? No. While many professional belly dancers and dancers of all genres enjoy taking this training to support their dance classes and as an offering for their dance students, this method is successfully taught as a group fitness offering in fitness studios as well as virtually. Our method teaches both: how to stay true to fundamental belly dance techniques as a modern day wellness solution and barre fitness as a low impact results based program designed to condition and tone the entire body from top to toe. Each instructor has the option to "dial up or dial down" the varying belly dance progressions depending on their target audience. Barre fitness is great for the body as is belly dance, and the two together create a wonderful opportunity to keep our students dancer fit and flexible!
Do I need to be a Certified Group Fitness Instructor to teach? Not neccessarily. While there are many benefits to being a Certified Group Fitness instructor, many professional dancers and dance studio owners who are also trained in kinesiology and movement based sciences do very well teaching this method. However, having a CPR certificate is a must and being mindful of safety at all times is very important. Our job is to equip you to teach a safe & effective class with authentic RAQISA® belly dance technique. Passing our teaching test is a crucial part to our training to ensure all are set up for success!
What if I can not make my virtual training date? Will I get a full refund? Digital learning content is provided upon purchase. The best solution is to contact us to rescheduled for another training date and enjoy the learning content to further prepare you for your next training.
I am not a dancer or a fitness professional and I don't really intend to teach...but I really would like to learn for my own personal growth. Is that okay? Absolutely! We have had many who are enthusiasts of our brand simply join in for their own understanding of this method and because they love this brand! Doing this training has actually enhanced their own dance and fitness techniques!

"I'm a preschool teacher so I spend a lot of time sitting in small chairs or on the rug with kids that I am working with. RAQ THE BARRE® has helped me build up a lot of core strength - and all of the stretching has really kept my hips and my lower back flexible and so now at the end of the day, I am not in nearly as much pain as I used to be! I love this program!" Samantha Conroy is a full time preschool teacher.
"RAQ THE BARRE® is the perfect combination of a fierce, full-body barre workout and authentic belly dance moves that make the experience not only more challenging but also more fun!

Anyone can do it! I love doing RAQ THE BARRE® as my own workout and I love teaching it to my students who rave about the accessibility of the method."
