Kamani Raqs

Adding to her primary and secondary school training in modern and contemporary dance, Kamani discovered belly dance in 1999 along with Amirah at Aja’s Mid-Eastern Dance studio. During her university years she continued her dance training in the U.S. and Spain studying Latin and Bollywood dances while continuing independent study and performance of Oriental dance. While performing with Reina Belly Dance in New York  she became involved in the new wave of belly dance theatre: a combination of drama, original choreography and live music presenting belly dance in full stage production. Participating in various dance workshops and classes in New York and beyond, Kamani continued to immerse herself in the dance. She currently resides in Chicago where she performs and teaches.
