Raks Al Zahra is having two places for permanent dancer who are interested to have exposure to formal performance and develop in a professional level. We are focus to perform and bring this art to the stage in the maximum expression. Local and International Performances opportunities as well competition will be part of the training program. Our mission is to bloom the true and personal art in each dancer during the training and incorporate it to the group performances.  Raks Al Zahra is well known for the connections of each members on stage and more importantly off stage.


  • Raks Al Zahra International: 6 dancers (Minimum of 4 years of experience).


Raks Al Zahra International is a dance program that will give the experience to work with Egyptian Oriental & Folklore Style. We are looking for 6 dancers for one or two time performances on November/December 2021 present or virtual show. The dancers will be featuring Raks Al Zahra 7th Annual Celebration as a core dancers. They will be learning original choreography from our repertoire and new choreographies.  The program will be offer through Zoom and videos.

  • New Seeds: 8 dancers (Minimum of 1 year of experience).

The Garden of Raks is growing, without seeds, no flowers would grow! Beginners/Intermediate dancers are like baby plants that need warm soil, water, and light to begin growing in the next stage.  This new project will guide dancers that after studying for a year or more, they feel the interest to continue growing. This program will give you the opportunity to train yourself in Egyptian Style, to connect with other dancers with the same interest, and the opportunity to perform as a group. It will be a great opportunity to prepare you for future interest in being part of Raks Al Zahra Member.
