Luna of Cairo
Jawaahir Dance Company ignites the stage with a brilliant and colorful assortment of dances, all inspired by the music that is the touchstone of Near Eastern Dance, for which it is renowned. Experience an extravaganza of Arab dance,
music, and talent that only Jawaahir can deliver. Jawaahir’s 18 dancers perform stunning contemporary interpretations, in the third Sparkle concert, choreographed by the Jawaahir dancers for the dancers, with an exciting new choreography
by Cassandra Shore, Artistic Director. Live music provided by the masterful musicians of Amwaaj, including Tim O’Keefe and Laura Harada. All of this – all new choreography, AND a breathtaking solo performance by our stellar
guest artist, Luna of Cairo, who performed in the top nightspots in Egypt for many years, now residing in Florida.
