I’m so proud of my dancers today, who learnt about giving back to the community through dance by performing at events for over 60s! It was amazing bringing these different generations together who have a common love for dance!


Dance with RAKS’s annual children’s Navratri workshop in conjunction with Sarawati Academy of Indian Dance will be on 14th October in Southgate.

Tickets will be available from this weekend so hold the date and keep and eye on this page.


Here are some of the special moments from Dance with RAKS’s first showcase- Love to Dance 2018.

The title of the show I hope comes through-
I aim to create an environment where the students can build and grow a Love for Dance, where they can enjoy and progress in a non-pressured environment.

I am so so proud of each and every student for what they had achieved in their dancing and confidence this past year (and we have had a lot of fun).

Thanks again to all those that made the event a success and to the parents for the endless support.

Bookings and waiting lists for next term are being reviewed now so please get in touch if you are interested in the classes.


Thank you to all those who participated supported and helped at my first showcase- Love to Dance 2018.

I am so so so proud of all the students who performed brilliantly and with confidence! The feedback has been great and I really appreciate all the lovely words from the parents and those who came to watch.

Photos and videos to be shared soon.


Thank you Bright Little Stars, Leapfrog and Teddys Nurseries for the opportunity to teach Bollywood dance and show the children a different and fun way of learning about rhythm and coordination. I thoroughly enjoyed the past 9 months and love the way the children proudly show me their peacocks and Namaste! I will miss you all!


Class snippets and a students view!


Here are some 2018 class snippets and one of my personal highlights from a lovely student..... Thank you Ishani, your thought will stay with me forever!

I’m not sure about changing the world, but I certainly hope I can teach our next generation to love Dance and benefit from it as much as I have, both physically and emotionally!


Some highlights from our October 2017 Navratri workshop...... loved dancing with everyone, loved seeing my students perform on stage!

Watch out for another workshop in Spring 2018!


It's been an amazing week!

I'm still on cloud nine after the successful navratri workshop at the weekend. More photos and videos to follow.

In the interim, having got a call for a casting as a result of Dance with RAKS, I'm pleased to say we were featured in Asian papers over the last week or so.

The Haria's certainly are living well and will be making a trip to Sainsbury's for our Diwali shopping!


Thank you to everyone who came and danced the afternoon away with us at our children's Navratri dance workshop.

We are very proud of the students who performed too. Watch out for the videos and photos.


Our Navratri workshop has SOLD OUT! We look forward to dancing and having fun with you on the 8th. Hoping everyone is enjoying the Navratri celebrations!

So proud of my group, done so well with their rhythm and movement in less than 1 term. Some of the children are as young as 4 but all confidently performed the routine together at our 2016 garba event. Well done to you all and thank you to the parents for all their support X

I have danced for 30 years and now want to pass some of that on to our energetic and creative next generation. The classes aim to help children build a foundation in dance, promoting physical activity and confidence in an interactive and fun way.

Bollywood/Indian dance is the core framework, but essentially the techniques can be used in any dance style. Children enjoy learning hand gestures and other movements which in turn help develop their rhythm, coordination and fine motor skills.

Flyer to be posted shortly. Please contact me, Rakhee Haria on 07930 383 322 for further information.
