Rahel has loved dance all her life. Since a young age, she has been highly involved in the artistic exploration of various forms of dance, rhythm and music. She found her calling in Raks Sharqi (Oriental/Egyptian Cabaret Style Bellydance) at the age of fifteen and has been passionate about it ever since, wholly immersing herself in it.

Rahel’s serpentine fluidity and joyful, engaging stage presence, as well as her unique, eclectic dance style make her a highly sought after performer, instructor and choreographer.

Although she has studied primarily under her mentor Narmaya, she has taken inspiration and influence from a number of dancers from around the world, ranging from the classics to the contemporary, and she has trained with greats such as Bozenka, Sabura, Ranya Renee, Rahma Hadad, Sadie, Jim Boz, Bellydance Superstar Moira Chappell, April Rose, and the legendary Farideh. Rahel also completed Ranya Renee’s Teacher Certification Training in March 2012.

As a certified yoga teacher (RYT-500) from Prana Yoga College, Rahel incorporates elements of her yoga training into her dance lessons for a more well-rounded, body-educated practice. She is also proud to have created a fusion class called Bellydance Yoga, incorporating bellydance elements and focus into a Hatha-based yoga class. She is also available for regular yoga classes in public, private and semi-private settings.
