Dancers and musicians of many faiths – Christian, Muslim and Jewish – and nationalities – Iraqi, Turkish, Israeli, Cuban, Mexican, Colombian, Swiss, Italian, Spanish, and American – have come together to present a message of peace.” The Iraqi born founder Fadi Khoury combines many forms including ballroom and ballet into a highly theatrical presentation.
Guest at opening night included Amy Astley, Sevin Ceviker, Peter Copping, Caroline and Paul Cronson, Brian Fisher, Kathi Hughes, Freddie Leiba, Liza Lerner, Gene Meyer, Tara Milne, Robert Rufino, and Priscilla Rattazzi Whittle.
