"It's an awe-inspiring sight, and one where the front row will literally feel the heat. Add world-class bellydancers with an edgy fusion style incorporating hip hop, ballet, classical Indian dance, and flamenco to the mix and you've got a date night to remember." - Broadway World

Raks Inferno is a project of Raks Geek.

"It’s a caliber of show you could easily be paying more money for in a bigger space, but have a chance to see up close and personal." - Third Coast Review

Founded by Dawn Xiana Moon, Raks Inferno (a Raks Geek project) showcases the talents of bellydancers and object manipulators who are each stars in their own right: They've performed everywhere from Spain to Argentina and dance for hundreds of people every week.
