Join Cassandra, Jawaahir, and special guests Sisters of the Sahara, Kamala Chaand, Helen, and Lahlia for a special Enchanted Evening of engaging and beautiful dance performances!
Middle Eastern dance is a celebration of life ¯ playful, dramatic, and always joyous! Jawaahir Dance Company’s selected pieces will expand your perceptions of Middle Eastern dance. Jawaahir’s contemporary pieces always push the envelope of Middle Eastern dance. The Company’s dances bring to life the indigenous rhythms, distinctive costumes, and expressive dance traditions of Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, and the Saudi Gulf.
This program is a professional show for the benefit of participants of Cassandra Shore’s Weeklong Intensive Workshop for dance students from across North America. Open to the public.
Noted choreographer and dancer Cassandra Shore founded Jawaahir (Ja-WAA-heer) Dance
Company in 1989. Jawaahir is dedicated to bringing the rich artistic heritage of the Middle East
to the theater stage, presenting contemporary and traditional, theatrical and folkloric dance.
