The Arabic  Danse Academie was home to the Dance  Company  Raks El Anwar, "Dancers of the Light" A Co. Nour El Shams ( Light of the Sun) B Co. and Niswan el Raks (Ladies of the Dance)  The San Diego Debke Ensemble and more. Students had an open invitation to audition for the companies once they have achieved a certain level of proficiency. Open audition calls were every year and are open to dancers with an interest in learning more about the dance and wanting to perform with others at a professional level. The works produced are choreographies, by such greats as the late La Meri and Ibrahim Farrah. Yousry Sharif, Morwenna Assaf, Mahmoud Reda and others are also presented. We use live percussion when possible to add to our affect. The ZEFFET Group is comprised of select dancers from the area in Knoxville that just do Arabic weddings in the traditional style.

The Rose Center

What a beautiful name for an absolutely fabulous place. As I was perusing my emails back in the week before Christmas, I came across an advertisement for a FREE concert. This sparked my interest. I had no idea what to expect. We decided to go as we live in an area where the arts and culture is next to nothing.

The Rose Center is located in Morristown, TN about 15 miles from where we live. The function was called “Java Jive”. We got there about 6:30. Found our way to the theater which is actually a dual purpose room. It was set up banquet style. A beautiful room that was decorated for Christmas.

At 7pm sharp the musicians entered the room. We were in for a treat. The show was called “Christmas With the Collective” The leader of the group was Antonio Gomez. There was an excellent guitarist, drummer and a female singer. They were a jazz group. Now, Jazz is not my favorite thing but they were so good and so professional that we enjoyed the whole thing. I was mesmerized. I am hooked on these concerts.

We are totally hooked. We spent considerable time talking to the artists. Plus the director of the Rose Center and people in the audience. These monthly concerts are open to the public and sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission. You can bring snacks and beverages in. Everyone is so cordial. We will be going back. This week is a concert by a guitarist. I will be sure to take pictures.

If you are interested in the arts or just music. Add their schedule to yours. The artists they bring are so talented. You will have an evening out with great people. Will not cost you a dime unless you want to donate. They do pass the hat. There is no pressure. Support the arts commission by attending. This also supports the artists from the area. There is something for everyone’s taste. The Rose Center is downtown Morristown. There is plenty of parking. Enjoy the evening and listening to music. See you there.
