Jasmin Jahal glides on the dance floor. When she dances one word comes to mind "Majestic!" It is obvious why "Jasmin Jahal School of Dance" was voted the best in all Chicago....if not the world and Jasmin the Instructor of the year. Hearts are touched, bodies and health is transformed and many smiles are created because you share your art with us. Five stars to Jasmin Jahal School of Dance

"I’m thrilled that this is “Volume 1”, because that means Jasmin will have more CDs produced in the future. An exciting prospect indeed! Jasmin Jahal is a stunning, complex, skilled, elegant and intelligent dancer. Alham Jasmin is a perfect match and compliment to her as a performer. Both are entertaining, alluring, and pure magic."

Experience the Art, Experience the Artist!
Pure Raks is based on the traditions and stylization of historically famous artists such as Samia Gamal and Sohair Zaki, and evolves with the work of lifetime artist Jasmin Jahal. Not every great dancer is a great teacher, and you deserve to train with the best. Jasmin Jahal is one of those rare contemporary artists that can teach what she can do and mentors dancers who have become nationally recognized. Jasmin is a full-time professional dancer (not an amateur or hobbyist). She has 30 years of teaching experience in Middle Eastern dance and a life time of experience in dance performance. Her style is graceful, feminine and powerful. She is a trailblazer in the world of classical belly dance by:
- Being a choreographer and producer of large scale theatrical oriental productions
- Establishing and operating the only purely classical school of belly dance in the Chicago area
- Offering a unique dance certification program for teachers
- Living, performing and teaching in Europe and in the Near East, including Egypt and Morocco
