Causes: Arts & Culture, Dance

Mission: Yasmanth Inc. is an all-volunteer, youth-led 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit organization with the mission to preserve the world's culture by exposing both the present and future generations to its history, dance, and music. We strive to create an understanding and a renewed appreciation of these cultures through educational workshops and constant cultural exchanges.

Results: We have provided over 17 workshops, have so far scheduled 15 workshops for this year, and even more for next year at Children’s Museums, Art and Cultural Centers, Youth Centers at Military Bases, Centers for people with disabilities, and Senior Centers.

Target demographics: Aurora Over the Silk Road is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn about the Silk Road.

Geographic areas served: We work locally (New York City), nationally (USA), and internationally.

Programs: Aurora Over the Silk Road project is an interactive workshop that allows you to explore the cultural diversity of the Silk Road as you embark on a journey full of fun crafts, capturing performances, and sensational sensory experiences. Immerse yourself in the history, colors, sounds, and sights with original costumes, music, and folkloric dances of the many ethnic minorities found along the Silk Road. The educational cultural workshop consists of stations, which cover Science, Geography, History, Culture, Arts and Crafts, Music, and Dance. Participants will join Gul (the girl), Koy (the sheep), and Toge (the camel) on a journey through the Silk Road. With an interactive workshop as well as a performance, we enhance the learning experience while exploring the treasures found along the winding turns of the Silk Road.

Yasmanth created an outatanding Program at our Youth Center on Scott AFB; engaging and thrilling all our children and staff with their culturally and visually-rich performances, crafts, and activities. The music and dance performances were exicuted with the utmost professionalism and excellence. The visual arts and cultural activities were unique and attention grabbing. This organization was an inspiration to children and staff alike. The professionals of Yasmanth should be very proud in how they are viewed as amazing artists of their craft. I would highly recommend Yasmanth to any organization who is seeking to provide a program that fully exhibits a broard range of cultural experiences.

The show was colorful, awesome, educational,informative, the dancing portion with all the costume changes was amazing. Our children had a great time,participated in projects, and learned about nature. I hope to see you again.

When this organization came to our center, they set up centers and allowed the children to go from center to center. It was quite educational and well put together. Our children had hands on experiences and over all this was quite worthwhile.

The performance of aurora over the Silk Road was outstanding. The interpretation of each dance made you feel as though the story was coming to life. The wardrobe was spectacular.

The Aurora Over The Silk Roads workshop was educational and entertaining. It captured the audience in its entirety. Here at Scott Air Force Base Youth Center, children continuously join our program. Therefore, it would be my pleasure to welcome Yasmanth again, in the near future, to allow us to experience the fun cognitive activities and amazing performances.

Gracias a la Fundación Yasmanth muchos niños de un barrio humilde de la ciudad de Cartagena tuvimos un antes y después en nuestras vidas a través de la hermosa experiencia a la cual nos permitieron acceder. El intercambio cultural nos enseñó lo valioso que somos como personas y sociedad, además de poder disfrutar de algo que me apasiona regalándolo a los demás, que es hacer música.
Muchas gracias y Dios les bendiga !!!

Yasmanth created fantastic programming at our museum, engaging and delighting hundreds of children and families with their culturally and visually-rich performances, crafts, and activities. The music and dance performances were dramatic and mesmerizing and their hands-on activity stations unique and engaging. As an added bonus, the siblings behind this organization are an inspiration to children everywhere and, like the rest of their family, they are polite and professional. I would highly recommend Yasmanth and everything this nonprofit has to offer.

The time I had volunteering for this organization was more than amazing, I learn many more things about the Silk Road that I did not know before such as that the Silk Road is actually shape like a chicken. More over we got to help all the children to get to learn about the Silk Road and what was the Silk Road mainly use for. Furthermore we got to meet new people and experience new things, the time I experience with this organization was very good. If I ever get the chance to volunteer again I would defiantly go for it.

Kohl Children's Museum was contacted by Yasmanth about the possibility of presenting their materials. After reviewing their information it was pretty amazing to hear that this organization was started by a brother and sister in their teens. I think that was one of the main reasons why we pursued having them come to the museum. Most of their materials and activities fit our young audience. Communication with Anthony was pretty good, there was some scheduling conflicts on their end for our first date, but they quickly came up with an alternative.

The Miami Beach Senior Center had the pleasure of hosting Yasmanth for an hour and a half show and activities. It was 8 years ago when we had Yasmine come to perform to us belly dancing and hula hoop. She gave an amazing show and the seniors fell in love with her. Now we were lucky to meet her all family. This is truly a one of a kind family. Anthony and Yasmine are an amazing team. They are so professional and entertaining. We loved the dance and the different station learning about the Silk Road. it was a family effort and the seniors could not get enough so we are going to have them again at the end of the month.
It is very nice to see a nonprofit organization led by teens and supported by their all family including the grandparents.

Although Anthony and Yasmine are teens, their attitude and professionalism far surpass their years. I was consistently impressed by their dedication and attention to detail throughout the planning process. Then to see them in action during the program was truly amazing. They brought so much life to the Silk Road and brought our Museum audience along for a wonderful journey!

We hosted Anthony and Yasmine at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh this past October, and were truly impressed by the level of tact and dedication with which they conducted their work. It is clear that they spend a great deal of time in perfecting their craft and preserving the culture and traditions that they so professionally brought to our visitors- who were thrilled! They are truly informed, and are wonderful to work with. I absolutely recommend them to any venue- because if anyone can tailor a show to fit your venue, it's Yasmanth!

Yasmanth’s presentation of “Aurora Over the Silk Road” was absolutely extraordinary. Parents and children were actively engaged in seven hands-on cultural stations. In just two hours, this spectacular experience broadened the world view of the entire family. Even if these families never travel to that distant land - they were empowered to share their humanity through connecting with another culture’s language, history, geography, clothing, livestock, art, music, instruments & dance… Wow, I am amazed that Yasmanth effectively accomplished all of these objectives in such a brief time… On behalf of the guests & visitors of Explorations V Children’s Museum, special thanks to Yasmanth for investing in our future generation!

Yasmine is a yoga student and sometimes ballet student of mine. She is a dream come true in the teacher/student environment. Always looking for ways to challenge herself, she applies what I say and thirsts for more. This enthusiasm spills directly into her non-profit organization she and her brother Anthony founded several years ago. To see young adults have a passion for knocking down cultural barriers and educate their peers through their passion(dance and music) is nothing short of inspirational. To know they started as children is a wake up call to all of us to reach out and share our own personal passion with the world. Yasmine and Anthony, the cofounders of Yasmanth, are lovingly supported by their parents and grandparents making this a familial organization filled with love and enthusiasm. What a gift they share and lucky are those who have the chance to see one of their shows. I am humbled by my student. May we all be so privileged.

Yasmanth visited the Children's Museum of New Hampshire on October 9, 2012. They held the attention of our visitors - ages 2 through 12 - for hours! The entire family is involved and delightful. They presented a puppet show, drumming demonstrations and wonderful dancing performances. Stations were set up around the museum for children to learn about silk worms, camels, geography and more. I have never experienced such a professional and enjoyable presentation conceived and executed by teenagers! I highly recommend Yasmanth.
