Raquel Cirne (Brasil, Spain)
has studied in History and Scenic Arts with a post-graduation
in Historical Patrimony. She taught history and religion in a public
school for three years, dancing at the same time, and developing
many projects to combine education and art.
Raquel has been dancing for almost ten years, beginning
with flamenco with teachers such as Cadica Borghetti, Andrea del
Puerto, Eva Yerbabuena, Sara Baras and La Lupi. Shortly thereafter,
she began studying belly dance with Karina Iman, Munique Neith,
Lulu Sabongi, Mohammed el Sayed. This is now her main focus, with
the purpose of saving its sacred and ancient values.
In 2004 she produced, directed and acted in the
show "Caminos Ahlam", in which 22 dancers participated,
combining flamenco and belly dancing. Since then, she also began
to work with fusion dances such as Arabian flamenco and Brazilian
dance and belly dance.
She has participated in important visits such as
the national show “Aeini Aleek”, the “Luna Mora
Festival”, “Feria de los Pueblos”, many medieval-themed
fairs, cultural weeks, Arabian dinner-events and more. Along with
the actress Teresa Ruiz she organizes the show “Lunas”
(Moons), an original and unique project that combines belly dance
and Oriental tales, a different version every month.
Raquel also practises yoga and teaches Pilates.
She works in four places in Malaga, organizes women’s meetings
and acts with her company "Las Flores de Loto" (The Lotus
Flowers) throughout Andalusia - always looking out for constant
theoretical and practical improvements.
