It's because it WORKS...I've seen it!

In preparation for classes with choreography, all new students registering for our dance season 2019-2020 must begin by investing in our Step By Step Training Bundle. Your bundle is designed to help prepare you to train with us and will set you up with success, and help me provide you the best experience. Included in the bundle are step by step video links to introduce the seven fundamental movements as well as practice drills, plus our 55 minute at home workout.  Before taking classes, be sure to  watch and practice each video, by using the patented design on the mat to practice each movement by aligning your hips to trace each fundamental!  

Student Testimonials:

"Working with RAQISA® was fun, challenging, and fulfilling! I enjoyed how each class had a technical focus and ended with some original choreography. RAQISA® is structured in a way where you feel and see progress with your dancing!"  Joelle Young
