"Kismet Dance Foundation"

The Kismet Dance Foundation is a newly founded, tax exempt organization (501(c)(3)) whose principal missions are to promote the art of Middle Eastern dance and music through teaching and performance, to encourage cultural awareness for educational and aesthetic reasons and to provide a way of bridging cultural gaps through the art of dance and music. Corporate missions also include (a) taking the authentic dance forms and presenting them in a contemporary setting, (b) teaching and presenting the folkloric and cabaret styles of Middle Eastern Dance, and (c) obtaining and accepting funds for the purpose of conducting corporate activities particularly by providing dance education to make the art of Middle eastern dance and music accessible to children and adults in the general community.

Most recently, Kira and Ghazala did a presentation at Brockway Memorial Library where they discussed the history and different styles of belly dance, costuming and music. They performed a dance demonstration complete with some of the props that are used by belly dancers. The program was well-received with plans to return in the future.
