Join Cassandra and seven of her gorgeous fellow dancers LIVE on Zoom! Cassandra’s vision is to present two enduring styles of Raqs Sharqi (belly dance) nightclub performance experiences, back-to-back, in one show. The first
half of this show is the Classic American style and the second half is the Classic Egyptian style. Instead of one dancer performing for the duration of each style, as is normally done, each full-length dance style is presented
as it would be experienced in a nightclub venue, with emotional moods and sections being portrayed and interpreted by different dancers. Following the classic traditions, each dancer’s performance is improvised,
making for a more exciting, spontaneous performance! Featured dancers are Cassandra, Alana, Courtney, Helen, Laura, Lauren, Salome Alexandra, and Zahirah.
Our studio is transformed into an intimate cabaret setting with sumptuous hors d'oeuvres and an evening of fabulous music and dance
featuring the Performance Adventure class choreographies and the incomparable Cassandra, with Julianna, Lauren, and Paula!
Show begins on your screen at 6:00pm CT. Approximate length of show: 1 hour 30 minutes.
Reservations are $20! Only 1 reservation per home needed.
Payment in advance is required by 12:00pm CT in order to receive your Zoom invitation before the show starts at 6:00pm CT on Saturday, August 22, 2020.
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.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund; Lisherness Foundation; O'Shaughnessy Foundation; Target; and friends of Jawaahir.
