The Raqs Salaam Dance Theater is a 60+ person performance group led by Gina Capossela, Artistic Director. Our name means “dances of peace and greetings” in Arabic. Our mission is to spread peace through intercultural education and understanding, to develop community, and to inspire personal growth. We perform Middle Eastern, Central Asian, and American Belly Dance, including authentic regional folk styles, as well as “eastern dance done with a western flair.” To book a performance, please contact Gina.
Artemis Mourat had this to say about Gina and The Raqs Salaam Dance Theater:
“I’ve taught all over the world and I’ve never seen anyone who can combine such high quality performance with equal opportunity for all dancers.”
Pictures coming soon…
