Raqs Jameel is the teen Middle Eastern belly dance performance company of Joy of Motion Dance Center (JOMDC). Led by director and JOMDC faculty member Adriane Whalen, the company consists of teens dedicated to this mystical dance tradition. Lavish costumes, veils and swords all play a vital role in expressing the traditional dances found in the Middle East. Raqs Jameel dancers learn significant cultural dances, Middle Eastern dance traditions and engage with the vibrant local belly dance community.
