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.

I very much enjoyed the puppet show Anthony and his sister Yasmine put on for the kids ,at The Children's Museum of New Hampshire . These young people of Yasmanth showed a very positive atitude. They have a unique show that gives others worldly knowledge. Everyone at the museum ,both young and old loved their show.

I'm very happy to know Anthony from Yasmanth through CTY. I come from the NYC area so I am very blessed to have such a culturally diverse life. However, like I previously mentioned I am blessed. I believe Anthony and Yasmine's vision of spreading and keeping "cultural legacies" is that of a beautiful one.

'Yamanth" is truly one of the most unique an extraordinary organizations existing today. I am especially proud of both of these two individuals for their hard work, integrity, and desire to help others less fortunate than themselves. At such a young age the founders of Yasmanth, Yasmine and her brother Anthony, have done more to educate and help the public than most people do in a lifetime. Supported by their family they are constantly educating youth and adults alike in a brave attempt to build bridges between various cultures. Utilizing their artistry "Yasmanth" creates a harmonious understanding of the humanity in all of us through the spirit of music and dance. Creating an appreciation for art forms that have existed for thousands of years they continue a legacy of social and culture significance. Not only do they educate but they use their donations to give back to some of the communities in the world that are in crucial dire need. At the fore front of their organization is the desire to unify children in the arts to create a powerful voice with a peaceful message of selflessness and helpfulness. Some of the most needed attributes in the youth of today. They are a stellar example of what can be done when empowered by the desire to give. I have had the pleasure of volunteering for Yasmanth as well as educating them in the Middle Eastern Arts of Dance and Music. Their tenacious desire to learn and spread knowledge through the arts is more than commendable but it is their generous spirit and thriving desire to give which reigns supreme.

I am very happy to know Yasmine through the Center of Talent Youth (CTY) program since beginning of 2012, furthermore, to the "Yasmanth", which was established by Yasmine and her brother, Anthony. In addition to their cheerful personality and hard working attitude, I am also very touched and impressed by their work as a bridge on linking West and East culture, music and dance; also use their talents to help unfortunate children. Beside their interests on international music and dance, they have also extended enthusiasm on learning foreign languages, history, and folklore; Giving performance at different cities, regions, and countries to raise fund on helping needed children. At such a young age, Yasmine and Anthony have such a beautiful and respectful life goal, It's a privilege to know Yasmine, Anthony and the Yasmanth.

Anthony Garay, who has been my percussion student for years is a created this organization with his sister to pursue the teaching and performance of music and dance from many cultures. Anthony is a teacher's dream student. He is hard working, enormously creative, enthusiastic and appreciates all knowledge that comes his way. His skills at administering this NFP amazes me for a young man of his age. If any further recommendation is desired please contact me without hesitation at harmonicmotion.com

The proactive youngsters who started this organization are a wonderful example for all our youth, teaching us about tolerance and the beauty of cultural exchanges. They strive to bring children together through a common language: music and dance. Regardless of cultural and language differences everyone who has seen them in action gets motivated by their passion and selflessness - they get carried away in their music and dance in order to bring down the walls of discrimination and bring a smile and hope to many children. I saw them perform in Honduras, Central America - a third world country, where I'm sure many children were positively impacted and hopefully all those little creative minds will fight to pursue their dreams.
