Dress your heart in spring colours – let’s meet this April for new inspiration, different perspectives, recharge and dance!

What is RAQSoul?

RAQSoul is a series of online and live Raqs Sharki (bellydance) classes and workshops of various topics, designed to inspire dancers who are looking for artistic creativity and expressivity within the frames of classical and modern Middle-Eastern dances. There is a specific focus on self expression and personal growth, moving with intention, creating and sharing stories that matter and that connect us.
I’ve created RAQSoul four years ago and ever since it has become a motivation for dancers worldwide, as well as it has grown to be a creative and supportive community.
It’s been a wonderful journey so far and it’s your time to join – develop the artist within!

This Spring City Getaway edition will be about 3 beautiful days together in Budapest with

💮 intensive dance classes & workshops with me
🌺 inspiring city activities, culture & unwind
🎥 and a unique dance video shooting!

I’m offering 12 hours of intensive classes in a small and intimate group setting, meanwhile let me guide you through the Budapest I know and love & get inspired by the creative process of a dance video making.

At the end of the weekend we will record our new group choreography with a professional team (the video team of CAIRO! Fest Budapest) and create our own unique piece of art and memories.

I’ll be paying special attention to the most important element of this weekend: YOU! There will be a personalized feedback session at the end of the weekend.

I’m looking forward to seeing you and guiding you through this unique experience.
