for general operating support  
Ballet Afsaneh is the flagship professional performance program of Afsaneh Art and Culture Society, whose mission is to present the dance, music, and poetry of the historic Silk Road regions of Central Asia, and it remains the only performing arts group in the Bay Area with that focus. In addition to both local and international performances, the Afsaneh Dance Academy concentrates on teaching traditional dance forms as a way to bring dancers up the ranks into the company and deepen their connections with Central Asian culture. A renewal grant would assist the organization in strengthening its capacity so it may continue to deliver excellent artistic and education programs, while engaging new audiences.
