LA Raqs is a community service focused on bringing together our diverse and vibrant Los Angeles Bellydance Community. In celebration of this art, we host quarterly haflas highlighting professionals to students, soloists to groups in a wide range of bellydance styles, all exploring a theme for creative inspiration. This is where artists can push, get feedback, try out new ideas, see what works as well as what may not~ all in a supportive environment meant to foster creativity and expression.

Open dancing & drumming afterwards
