With more than 17 performances throughout the evening, acts included such performances as an Indian classical dance, a Veena/Bharatanatyam dance, a Filipino dance, a Chinese classical dance, Irish folk songs, a Kathak dance, and piano and vocal acts.
The performances culminated with Head of School Rob Zimmerman ’98 leading some of the guests in a Lebanese dabke.
