The brainchild of founder and artistic director Roudolf Kharatian, the company debuted in April 1999 at the Kennedy Center. Since then, the group has performed at GW's Lisner Auditorium; at the Kennedy Center in: Dance for Life, a gala benefit for the Whitman Walker Clinic; in Music that Moves and Meet Mr. Beethoven with the National Symphony Orchestra; and at the Mary Louise Jackson Amphitheater in Virginia.
