As our second year comes to a close, I just wanted to wish every Yalla Y'all reader a Merry Christmas and/or whatever else you choose to celebrate, and a very happy New Year!

I started this web site to give back to a community that has given so much to me. I hope my work over the past year has helped you enjoy and appreciate the many gifts that are exchanged within the metro Atlanta raqs community year-round. Hundreds of dancers, teachers, choreographers, musicians, costumers, event producers, restaurant owners, costumers, photographers, and many others pour their hearts and souls into creating experiences for all of us.

Along with our personal goals, let's all resolve to get out and enjoy more of what our community has to offer in the coming year. I promise to do my best to keep you informed about all of it. Cheers!

The 2012 Belly Dance Community Survey

This year's survey is focused on workshops and performances... how you learn about them and how event producers can make them better.  We're also checking in once again on your level of participation in raqs events and what types of events you'd like to see more of in your community.

This survey is open to raqs enthusiasts everywhere, so please contribute and share!  It's completely anonymous and just 10 questions.  The survey will be open throughout the month of December, and results will be published in January.  Thank you in advance for your valuable input!

The survey is closed... thanks to all who participated!
