Annual Members’ Showcase

June 7, 2015

We had a beautiful show with an enthusiastic and appreciative audience!

Thanks go to Gerson Kuhr, our MC; Bahiya and her daughter, Ellen, for handling the check-in table and answering questions; Dorsey Vengrouskie and son for handling the audio equipment; Lulu and Shagoura for organizing the show and making the program; and Jerry and Verna Thompson for procuring the venue.

Special thanks go to our very fine performers: Sha’vei, Philomeana, Shagoura, LuLu, Porsha, Rashid Moudala, Veda Sereem, Nimeera Nazmine, and Amustela.

Sha’vei opens the show with a flourish, doing a raks sharqi! Sha’vei dances to “Hamada” by Sayed Balah. What a beautiful dress!

Philomeana dances to “Bou Saada Festival Dance” from “Music of the Ouled Nail.” This ethnic dance is serious business: Philomeana had to wear a solemn look.
