Dear Heart of America family,
I am heartbroken to announce the postponement of the Heart of America Raks Conference due to COVID-19. The health and safety of our star teachers, attendees, staff, vendors, and guests are our highest priority.
October 8-10, 2021 is set for all three teachers Camelia, Najla, and Jillina.
The show must go ONLINE for 2020… Stay tuned for details on our 2020 virtual edition of Heart of America Raks – reimagined. We will keep dancing!
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you back October 8-10, 2021 where we will dance and celebrate our love of the Arab culture in-person again.
Soon, I’ll be sending news about our virtual competition and show and possibly some workshop classes.
