Welcome to a taste of Egypt with Vanessa Raqs! I am so excited to be bringing you for the very first time Vanessa Raqs all the way from Egypt. Vanessa is a born American Egyptian dancer who has been living and dancing in Egypt for over 10 years

Our mission is to welcome all dancers from different backgrounds to participate and meet IN AN INTIMATE ENVIRONMENT to share and expand their knowledge of Egyptian folk dance. The main objective is to continue to preserve the roots, lineage, history, and culture tied to Egyptian dance. To further educate dancers, improve and polish technique, but most importantly, to celebrate all the different styles and forms of oriental dances.
