Raks Terror VI is going to be something special. Save the date for October 5th, 2019, and prepare for an entirely new experience!

Raks Terror is all about exploring the edges of where belly dance and theatre collide. All styles of belly dance are welcome, under the theme of horror, ritual, or camp.

Pieces should fit a theme, have a developed character, and/or tell a story. Generic depictions (“I’m a vampire”) aren’t really appropriate for Raks Terror. But “I’m a vampire mourning the loss of a favorite human” IS appropriate for Raks Terror. Branch out, think deep, and challenge yourself!

Here’s the deal:

I want to perform!

  • Great! Use the form below to propose your piece.
  • Dancers who have signed up for the Jamila format training will get FIRST DIBS at spots in the show. If you want to be guaranteed a spot in the show, sign up. Your piece must STILL FIT THE THEME, no exceptions!
  • Once all the dancers who have signed up for the workshops have been placed, the remaining spots will go to the dancers that best fit the THEME OF RAKS TERROR (see above).

The sign up form is below. You do not need a finished piece in order to sign up, but please understand that signing up means that you could be placed in the show, and that you will need to deliver on your piece.
