Description

Simcha is a new tale that is inspired by the well-known stories of Sholom Aleichem. It is a touching celebration of the spirit and history of the Jewish culture, using the art forms of dance and music.

Simcha is a travelogue journey that begins in the shtetls of Eastern Europe and ends in America. The story will immerse the audience into the emotions felt by a family torn away from their village and transported to a new land and an unknown life…

Firebird Dance Theatre has always impressed the audience with their non-conventional approach to dance — a flight of fancy and high creativity. The Firebird Dance Theatre consists of passionate people, all with the common goal of excelling in the art of dance. They provide the community with an environment which nurtures the awareness of how different cultures use dance and theater to express their heritage through stories, music and costumes of traditional dress. The Firebird Dance School also participates in this production.

A portion of all proceeds from Simcha will be donated to the Ben Yakir Youth Village in Israel. The Ben Yakir Village is a charity organization in Israel the helps at-risk youth and enriches their lives.
