Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.
