At FJK Dance, we believe in the power that dance has in bringing people together. Our goal is to spread that contagious positive energy back into our community. We collaborate with institutions like the MEMEAC " Middle Eastern Studies center in New York of CUNY, The New York Academic Center of the Lebanese American University, The PASOS Peace Museum, and The Consulate General of Lebanon in New York. We create themed performances, lecture demonstrations, and workshops, in the effort of creating a message of peace, tolerance, and welcoming diversity.
In July 2018 FJK Dance was awarded the Artist in Residence at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, by the Behavioral Health Services Division. The goal of the Program is to use dance to remove the stigma of, and to enable the public to better understand, psychiatric illness. Site specific performances, workshops and performances will also seek to emphasize the role of behavioral health settings in the provision of mental health services.

A workshop in the rehearsal studio in the form of a lecture- Demonstration dedicated to communicating peace, diversity, tolerance, and harmony through dance, and to educate and share the endless possibilities in finding connections within our differences.
we are very excited to have a new collaborative effort with The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD), based in Berlin with an office in the US. “The ICD ‘s ultimate goal is to promote global peace and stability by strengthening and supporting intercultural relations at all levels.” ICD guests will attend a working rehearsal and Fadi J Khoury will give a workshop and dancers will participate in a lecture/demonstration on “The Fusion of Culture and Dance” community outreach program.
