Melissa Sweiss, founder and director of SAB, told The Jordan Times earlier this week that the process of putting on the large-scale show has been difficult but rewarding.
"We've had to have all our rehearsals on Fridays" to accommodate the dancers' schedules, Sweiss said, adding that multiple holidays and a swine flu scare further compounded the challenge. Sweiss noted that the families of the dancers, most of whom are young girls studying with SAB and other local dance schools, have "made a big sacrifice" in their commitment to the production. "The parents volunteer to help with things, we have parents dancing in the show... parents are involved in every aspect of the show," she explained. "Their participation and contribution has really enhanced the production," Sweiss said. "I'm hoping next year we'll have more schools participating." She explained that SAB's vision also includes community outreach, and the production has been tied in with a number of initiatives, including the ongoing Twinkle Toes Sock and Shoe Drive, a partnership between SAB and the American Women of Amman under which SAB students are collecting footwear to donate to underprivileged children in refugee camps. Sweiss said that given sufficient interest and support, she hopes to make the show an annual event, as well as to expand the school's range of outreach activities in the future.
