Royal Dance by Candlelight
Since ancient times, light has been considered a special symbol in all cultures. Candle light especially is known for creating a warm intimate atmosphere. In oriental cultures, a unique accessory, the candelabra or Shamadan, is an essential part of weddings and serves as a symbol of the bright future for the newly wed couple. We took this ancient tradition and brought it into the current age.
In our performance, up to 16 dancers sway elegantly to the rhythm of oriental waltz, while effortlessly balancing shamadans, glowing with the light of real candles, atop their heads. Hundreds of yards of snow-white fabric have been used to create unique custom-made dresses for this performance. The tops and skirts are decorated with crystals, pearls, and golden appliqués; shaped as melting candle wax.
Number of dancers: 3 - 16
Candles: real or LED
This performance is accompanied by the beautiful musical composition called "Mysterious World,"written by the Uzbek composer, Sultonali Rahmatov.
Rich dark hues and jewels on the costumes symbolize the night sky twinkling with stars. Meters of silk transition from deep blue to bright yellow like a sunrise over the mountains.
The dancers twirl their handkerchiefs as if they were holding kaleidoscopes, image after image changes, picture after picture; a blossoming flower, autumn leaves carried away by the wind, a streaming waterfall, stars on the Milky Way, and for the finale - a whirlwind of elements!
Number of dancers: 3-10
Dance of Charming Peacocks
The setting is a fairy palace of an Arab sheikh or an Indian Maharaja. In the marvelous garden we find walking birds of paradise - charming peacocks. Gracefully moving in the rhythm of music, they fascinate and delight the audience. Enchanted by the beauty of their movements, one audience member volunteers to join them, supported by the applause of the audience. Then the lady of the peacock kingdom appears in a suit made of thousands of peacock feathers and performs her divine dance.
Number of dancers: 3 - 9
LED Dance Show
A unique fusion of art and technology made it possible to create this breathtaking piece. The interplay of darkness and light instantly impresses the audience, as the first dancer appears on stage, to be joined by eight more performers. Suddenly, nine huge star-shaped wings open and light up the whole stage. Like in a magic kaleidoscope, the light patterns come to life constantly changing and transforming. The piece reaches its peak with the fans of 9 dancers swirling simultaneously, creating breathtaking images of huge blue moons in a dark sky.
Number of dancers: 2-9
Fiery Drum Solo
This is the highlight of the Jumana show program. A real, traditional belly dance. But even here, we have prepared surprises for the audience! In the hands of Joumana - an Arab drum, called a tabla or darbuka.
At first, she performs a fast solo, but as the drumbeat slows, she puts down the drum and suddenly it becomes a stage. Masterly keeping balance, obeying the rhythm of music, Joumana dances atop the drum. The audience watches with suspense and captivation at her skill and precision.
This performance showcases one of the folk dances of Upper Egypt, known as "Saidi.’’ This is a traditional male dance, the choreography of which is based on the movements of martial art. Over time, this dance began to be performed by women.
We decided to transport the viewer to the wild west and connect the East and West; an eastern dance with the adventurous spirit of the prairies. The showcase of this piece is audience interaction! Joumana dancers teach and encourage the audience to participate and dance alongside them. Even those who remain purely a viewer are a part of the show, and support the brave ones with festive applause.
Number of dancers: 2-10

The magical wings of the Egyptian goddess Isis seem to raise both dancers and spectators over the earth. Dancing with this oriental accessory was introduced in Europe in the 19th century by the outstanding dancer, Loi Fuller. Her Serpentine number has been imitated by many craftsmen for many years. Joumana was able to combine serpentine flexibility with hints of light and a flying cloth. An unforgettable visual experience!

Journey around the world
Wings - a spectacular accessory, incredibly beautiful by themselves. However, in recent years they have become very popular, and are used by almost every eastern dancer.
Joumana approached the creation of this dance with her signature imagination. Here, wings live and die, swirl and soar, breathe and fade. Brilliant brocades play and shimmer in the light of the soffits, flowing from form to shape as molten gold.
Fiery Drum Solo
This is the highlight of the Jumana show program. A real, traditional belly dance. But even here, we have prepared surprises for the audience! In the hands of Joumana - an Arab drum, called a tabla or darbuka. At first, she performs a fast solo, but as the drumbeat slows, she puts down the drum and suddenly it becomes a stage.

Interactive Dance Number
During this performance, the spotlight is on a guest from the audience; a birthday person, the head of the company, or simply a volunteer. Under the festive applause of the audience, Joumana invites him to the stage and teaches the movements of belly dancing. Shimming the hips, swaying, and spinning - a new dancer has been accepted onto the team!
Peacock Dance in Pointe Shoes
This is a unique number, combining belly dancing and classic pointe shoes, with a fair amount of humor. Where else have you seen a proud peacock, losing his tail and turning into a chicken? However, the bird remains optimistic and even without a tail, tries to fly. The stunning designer costume is made with real peacock feathers and Swarovski rhinestones. This number won first place at the Russian and International competitions, and was shown in Paris and Venice.
Live Oriental Band Show
In the authentic art of oriental dance, live music makes all the difference. Something special truly comes alive when musicians follow the dancer and the dancer follows the musicians. In the oriental world, a big part of music is improvised, and even well-known pieces are played a bit differently each time, to suit the mood of all involved. This "not-knowing" part creates the intimate dialogue between the dancer and the orchestra. The music and the dance are created here and now, never to be repeated in the same way again. The audience is the third participant in this performance. As the guests are taken away by the music, feelings and emotions come alive in the dancer's body. Amazing raw energy emerges in this encounter between the musicians the dancer and the audience. This experience is a highlight at all kinds of events.
Arabic audiences can enjoy well-known musical pieces - arabic classics to folk pieces of all countries of the middle east, from latest pop hits to popular shaabi music. And of course the dancing! Every guest will have a chance to dance and request their favourite songs. Our professional oriental band will be happy to play them all!
International audiences get the chance to see authentic oriental dance. In our experience, everyone is totally impressed by the highest level of oriental dance performance and are completely surprised by how it looks on the highest professional level. In addition, our band can play "dancing" sets, consisting of well-known arabic hits. We can even hold a mini dancing workshop accompanied by live music as well! Guest will have tremendous fun learning to swing their hips and shimmy like real dancers!
