Modern belly dance has gained popularity as a fun and beautiful form of exercise that can be enjoyed by all ages, body types, and sexes. The torso movements encourage awareness and flexibility of core muscles that often get stiff and neglected in the desktop age.  Dancing has mental, as well as physical benefits.


Brazos Raqs formed in 2008, the Brazos Raqs Ensemble is a diverse group of local belly dance artists. Performing in numerous festivals and community events, the group works to embody the spirit and beauty of belly dance and share this wonderful art form with the Bryan and College Station communities. The group as a whole, or some individual members are available for shows and parties. For more information see
