The Fusion of Culture and Dance program is an opportunity to communicate peace, diversity, tolerance, and harmony, to educate and share the endless possibilities in finding connections within our differences. Through a combination of a dance workshop and lecture demonstration, we aim to celebrate the Middle Eastern heritage and raise awareness to the positive and artistic influence of this culture.
Fadi J. Khoury, the Artistic director and Choreographer of FJK DANCE, was born in Iraq and raised in Lebanon, grew up with the folkloric music and dance of the Arab world, brings together, through his work, a versatility in dance music and design creating a unique experience that brings east and west on stage.
The company seeks to offer the students of Brooklyn College/CUNY this experience hoping to inspire them with the cross-cultural dialogue and alternative ways of communication.
At FJK Dance, we believe in the unique fusion of culture and dance. The endless possibilities of experimenting with the fundamentals of various forms of dance, from classical ballet to ballroom, from Middle Eastern to jazz––we combine the essentials of each to create our own language. One that uses abstract body lines, forms and energy to communicate with our audience. Our passion is to share our art and reach out to the world with a message of peace. Dance is a universal art form that brings humans from different cultures and backgrounds through the true honest expression of the body.
