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.

Upcoming next: The Fusion of culture and dance lecture-demonstration
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.
