Along with our motivating workshops with Master Instructors, we also have our exciting and glittering gala highlighting our featured artists and special guests.
Our goal for this Intensive is to give dancers of all levels the opportunity to grow your dance in a relaxed and friendly environment, and to extend the loving Aloha spirit to each and every attendee. You'll find yourself surrounded with the natural beauty of the island and slowing your pace to match the island vibe. Kick back in your comfy and relaxed clothing, hang out in your bathing suit, and find yourself enjoying the Aloha state of mind. If you're an adventurous soul, there's plenty of exploring to keep you active. Surfing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, swimming, hiking, 4 wheeling, zip lining, tubing, kayaking, cycling, walking, sky diving, helicopter rides.... whatever floats your boat.
We are excited to join forces with the Kaua'i Humane Society this year and are pleased to announce that our Raqs Tiki Glittering Showcase 2023 will benefit this worthy cause. Please support them by telling your friends and joining us at this year's stellar showcase on Saturday, Sept 29, 2023.
Testimonial by Theresa S. our 2022 scholarship winner
In 2022 I was fortunate enough to be selected for a scholarship to study Belly Dance at Raqs Tiki in Kuaui. I now know why people love Hawaii I was lucky to study with some of the best belly dance instructors in the world. (Oh and I won a prize for being the farthest traveler! :)) Talia Soleil, words can’t begin to explain how thankful I am for the opportunity. I’m forever grateful to you for the experience and thanks for giving me the gift of being at your home and experiencing the culture of Kokua- helping others without any expectation of receiving anything in return. I LOVE belly dance workshops, and so whenever I go, I try to remember to bring back at least one piece of knowledge or advice from my instructors. My notebook was full of priceless tidbits from these experienced, patient, and knowledgeable instructors. From spatial awareness and the power of the mind to sizzling zills, I learned so much that I was able to immediately incorporate into my dance. It taught me to step outside of the box and push past my biases and preconceived notions. I highly recommend the Raqs Tiki Kauai Belly Dance Intensive as a dance experience and as a laid-back paradise, so sign up this year!
