Raqs Akia is a Middle Eastern dance troupe formed in 2009 by fifteen friends.
The troupe name translates to "Sisters of the Dance" and it reflects the emotional bond that the members of the troupe share with each other.
The goals of Raqs Akia are to offer its members and students an encouraging and nurturing environment to explore all aspects of the art form commonly known as bellydance.
Raqs Akia strives not only to grow its repertoire and performance skills as a troupe, but also to support each individual Raqs Akia dancer as she finds and develops her own technique, creativity, confidence, soloist skills (if she so chooses), choreography, and stage presence.
