I’m so excited to announce we have a brand new location! The new home for Raksanna and the Near East Dance Ensemble is Center Stage, 1665 Quincy Ave, Naperville, IL 60540.

It’s a fabulous facility with three performing venues including a professional theater that seats 165, a newly renovated dance training room and a vibrant, creative energy that captures the imagination and stirs the spirit!

I’ve also done an overhaul of the program to bring you fresh innovation and even more exciting learning opportunities! You’ll still get first-class training in Egyptian style belly dance – but now, you get 90 minute classes, in-depth topics like how to set yourself apart from the competition, working on a proper theatrical stage, immersion in the culture and history, musicality and more.

So what are you waiting for? Get your shimmy on and join us for femininity, friendship and fun!
