Dance Instructor, Performing Artist and Choreographer

Vibrant and energetic, Raizel is a passionate, emotive dancer, entertainer and instructor with lyrical music interpretation. With more than a decade of teaching & performing experience, her focus in class is to create a positive and encouraging atmosphere to support your dance journey.

It is my passion to bring wellness, love, and balance to you, while igniting your own creative confidence through movement. 

Belly dance to me has been a great journey of connecting with women and it is a sisterhood of ladies to come together to show each other appreciation and love. From my first stage performance at age of 4, to teaching classes and choreographing new music, it is my passion to help you embrace your light, shine it brightly and engage with our audience and community shared through dance, music, and movement!

I look forward to connecting with you and igniting your presence!
