NEW AMERICAN STORIES
This weekly program is being offered to the refugee/ immigrant children/youth from k - 12 grades.
The 20-week classes run follows the school year.
In this program, the participants create their own original play using dance, theatre, storytelling, music, etc.
We teach the basics of storytelling structure and encourage them to use their imaginations to tell the stories that are most meaningful to them, their ideas resulting in a 15-minute short play.
Starting, 1 Feb 2021, currently, this program is being offered four times a week and as a summer camp in June and July.
Short for I Am. Resilient. Informed. Steadfast. Empathetic, starting, 2 Feb 2021, this weekly program gives voice to the refugee and immigrant women and connects them with American women.
Together they create a short play that while entertaining also touches upon relevant issues that are contemporary and important to address.
An offshoot of project 'Lullabies', this program strives towards an increased connection among women of ethnic diversity, resulting in new learnings, and positive shared experiences.

ROSHNI DANCE THEATRE ENSEMBLE
Love is both dark and Light. Without understanding and accepting one, the other remains elusive.
Empathy begins with the acceptance that we are all different and within us reside the Yin and Yang, the two contrasting forces of nature.
Our journey of life is a continuous effort to maintain a balance. In doing so, we shall understand the true meaning of Love.
This performance will be premiere during the 2021 New American Arts Festival
THE EMPATHY PROJECT
Our hearts beat a rhythm, we blink rhythms, we speak rhythms. We are rhythm!
The language of rhythm is universal and because dance is rhythm, it has the power to connect us to one another.
It fosters confidence.
It encourages dialogue.
Dance provides fertile soil for seeds of Empathy.
Geared towards the middle schoolers, The Empathy Project will premiere in the Fall of 2021 and will tour the schools then and in Spring of 2022.
ALY AND THE GENIE
Based on the popular Aladin story from Arabia, this play is anything but. First off, it takes place in a present-day metropolis and well things are not as they seem... (Are they ever?)
Aly is a minding-my-own business girl who is tricked into retrieving a lamp that comes with an ancient and very talkative Genie.
Filled with adventure, laughter, and crazy but cool characters, this story will lift you up and perhaps inspire you to look for a Genie of your own.
To be presented in July 2021.
