About Us


The Crescent Moon Dance Company, whose motto is “Education through Entertainment,” was established in 1990 to promote and celebrate the many rich, diverse, and ancient cultures of the Silk Road through their dances.

The Company’s repertoire includes folk and classical dances from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and East Turkestan (Xinjiang Province, China).

The Crescent Moon Dancers are based in Louisville, Kentucky, and are available for ethnic festivals, school programs, international banquets, and other multicultural and educational events.
