Secondly, ticket sales from the show help raise money for female education. Each time Nectar of the Moon is presented, we empower and educate women and girls around the world, and raise cultural awareness.
- Will my donation be tax-deductible?
Yes, all donations to WomenMove are tax-deductible. WomenMove is a federally approved 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization.
Why is the signature program of WomenMove a stage show about world dance?
Actually Nectar of the Moon is not about world dance, it’s a show utilizing world dance. World dance encompasses styles such as African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Tahitian, Spanish, and more. Many of these styles dating back to antiquity have similar aspects of movement, several of which celebrate the stages of a woman’s life. Through Nectar of the Moon we’re telling a story by way of movement and music, costumes and scenery, and togetherness – the story is about honoring your mothers and grandmothers, celebrating your daughters, and overcoming confines, what ever they may be. Bringing Lurainya’s vision to the stage are high-caliber composers, choreographers, dancers and musicians, forming an unstoppable team of talent. Through cultural dance, this large-scale production conveys the message of global unity, illuminating the sisterhood among all women. The audience experiences a lasting sense of empowerment, confidence, and pride in being a woman.
