MISSION STATEMENT

To Rahel, being an ethical, respectful and culturally sensitive ambassador and guest to this dance form is of the the utmost importance. Part of Rahel’s mission as a teacher is to accurately and respectfully represent this dance form, educate others on issues of cultural appropriation, Orientalism, and colonialism, and to do her part to fight against racism and bigotry within and outside the dance community.

Before learning any movements, new students must learn about bellydance history and cultural context. They must be exposed to the issues of racism, patriarchy, and cultural appropriation that have been and continue to be rampant in regards this dance. Students are also encouraged to do additional reading or research (and are provided with resources to do so), to travel to and study in countries of origin when possible, to seek out authentic sources and representation, and to approach the dance with sensitivity and curiosity, especially if they are not from the culture.

Rahel stands for inclusion, equality, anti-racism, body positivity, feminism, love and kindness. Rahel priorities the health and safety of her students, and wants everyone to feel welcome, accepted, safe, seen and heard.

 Bigotry or discrimination towards BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour), MENATH (Middle Eastern, North African, Turkish and Helenic) people, immigrants, Muslim people, Jewish people, Trans people, non-binary people, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities,  or anyone who is different because of their religion, race, nationality, creed, sexual preferences etc. as well as slut shaming, body shaming, etc will NOT be tolerated.

All bodies are beautiful, and everyone deserves equal rights and respect.
