Zada Al Gaziyeh & Raghsidad!
Lawrence, KS

Raghsidad! was established in 1988 to find opportunities for students to become professional dancers. Zada and Raghsidad! focus on study to preserve, present, and promote the arts of the Middle East in the greater Lawrence and Kansas City area.

Arts of the Middle East

Available for your "edutainment" are music, percussion and dance instruction, educational lectures / demonstrations; entertainment for weddings, or parties; a Dance Company - Raghsidad! and local musicians who specialize in musical improvisation using Middle Eastern musical concepts. We have access to a network of instructors, performers and vendors developed throughout the Midwest and the US, as well as in several overseas locations. Zada is available to instruct or coach on a local basis, as well as on the seminar circuit.  A wide range of classes can be customized for your learning audience. Study with Zada year-round through the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department. EMAIL Zada for information.


Belly Dance on the Fringe

The sound of Middle Eastern music stands apart because of its unique instrumentation and rhythms. Raghsidad and Friends will demystify the sounds, present the facts of the beats using figures in motion, and share samples and examples of these fascinating rhythms. Raghsidad! welcomes special guest Amanda of Kansas City in this fast paced hour of rhythm and moves from the Middle East. Let us hypnotize, mesmerize and "edutain" you!!
