On May 24, 2019, at the “Nabil Kahhale” Hall at the Sin El Fil municipality outside Beirut, the Hamazkayin schools of fine arts held a performance under the direction of dance teacher Jalin Maginian, Aztag reports.
One after the other, students of different ages took the stage with different styles of dance. Accompanied by world music, the students showed carefully practiced and choreographed steps. It was exciting to see everyone on the stage, showing their talents and the experience they had gathered at their age. The audience showed their appreciation with warm applause.
The hourlong program was the annual performance of the ballet school. Each of 58 students had their own quirks, ways of performing the dances. In some, the abundance of talent shone through; in others, it was the love of dance and the effort to put one’s best foot forward. The little children’s and preteens’ performances conveyed a sense of innocence and simplicity.
Pyune Safa, who is a guest in Lebanon, participated in the performance with two solo dances. A student of Jaqlin Maginian’s she showed her gratitude for her mentor on the stage.
The performance was a wonderful opportunity to consolidate the progress that has been made and to look forward to the further success of this school as part of the Hamazkayin family.
