Educational Assemblies

Informative, entertaining, and motivational interactive lectures, demonstrations, and assemblies are available for elementary school, junior high, high school, college, and university level students.

Some of our favorite topics are:

1. ENTERTAINMENT IN THE ANCIENT WORLDfocuses on the roots and development of whirling dervish, contortion, percussion, and costuming from the ancient Eastern world and how it has evolved today in contemporary culture.

2. RITES OF PASSAGE: traces the roots and development of fire artistry, aerial acrobatics, and other variety arts sprung from various cultures rituals and Rites of Passage.

“WOW! I am overwhelmed and blown away with the assembly you and Gregangelo put together for us today. The quality of the show and talent was/is outstanding and very impressive. All aspects were really top-notch. The kids haven’t been that excited and engaged in a performance in quite awhile. Both groups of students (younger and older) responded with sincere enthusiasm. Even my “sophiticated 6th graders” got into the performances and were excited and intrigued by what they saw.

Your welcome from the ropes was a terrific way to begin the program. The rolling dervish, of course, is amazing to watch. I can’t imagine anyone being able to spin like that and not get totally dizzy! Of course, the dancer and contortionist were both unbelievable. I was watching kids trying to copy the movements they were seeing. It was really cute!

Please convey my thanks to everyone for a wonderful experience for our students and staff. This is an assembly I will be recommending to colleagues for other schools. Feel free to use my name as a reference anytime for any of the performers! They are all truly amazing. It was especially fun for me to see you in action. I am very proud of you!
