What is the function and role of the artist in our society?
This question, Rakiya is asked from the beginning of his career, to walk with the most authenticity possible.
Very quickly, it seems clear that she must work with young people, citizens, minorities or disadvantaged people.

Dance for extraordinary people
Body project in agreement: the dance a tool indispensable to the well being!
In recent years we often hear the term ‘inclusion’ for people with motor, mental or emotional distress.
For almost fifteen years, Rakiya The Artist has been working for accessibility to all with the pleasure of moving. As an artistic artist, she brings the pleasure of tasting dance with the collaboration of the different centers of the region.
In addition to these collaborations and, in a desire to erase the barriers, the non-profit association Arabesque offers 2 body workshops in agreement.
Dance within companies
Personal development and management of emotional behavior (in groups or individually). We offer “well-being” workshops through simple games and fun experiences accessible to all: satisfaction at work, self-esteem, team mobilization and solidarity, group cohesion.
To increase efficiency and combat absenteeism and promote well-being at work.
