Saba performs with Arabesque Dance Company & Orchestra which returns this year with an even larger ensemble of dancers and musicians. Ancient Egyptian themed highlights from “ISIS” first staged in 2001 to new ventures including “Kariat El Fingan”, The Coffee Cup Reader, a very spooky Exorcism Ritual and of course, Bellydancing fill out this new program. Choreographer YASMINA RAMZY has been greatly inspired working with the innovative Modern/Ballet choreographer ROBRT DESROSIERS as he has come onto this project as Choreography Advisor. Musical Director BASSAM BISHARA has composed and arranged music that will lift the audience to euphoric heights. Always an emotional experience, Arabesque is evermore taking Middle Eastern dance and music to another level. Yasmina, Bassam and the company’s dedicated artists are constantly looking to push the envelope without losing the essence of a rich culture and tradition.
