FEATURED ESSENCE 6 INSTRUCTOR: MADAME RAQIA HASSAM
We are honored to host Madame Raqia Hassan of Egypt, a renaissance woman in the Oriental dance community and director of one of the biggest Belly Dance festivals in Egypt, Ahlan wa Sahlan!  A dancer since the age of four, Madame Raqia rose to stardom as one of the principal dancers in Mahmoud Reda’s National Folkloric Troupe of Egypt. With over 30 years of professional experience performing folkloric and Oriental dance, she is praised as a dancer, choreographer and master teacher. A remarkable performer, Raqia has focused her talent on teaching others rather than on the stage. As a result she has trained some of the biggest modern day Egyptian stars. She is credited with the training of such dancers as Dina, Dandash, Mona el Said and Randa Kamal!
