The Adel Euro Campaign For Dancers Seeking Refuge

Last August, Battery Dance announced the Adel Euro Campaign for Dancers Seeking Refuge – a tribute to Iraqi dancer Adel Faraj (also known by his stage name – Adel Euro) who lost his life in the Baghdad bombing on July 3, 2016. Battery Dance’s crusade aims to relocate six dancers from conflict zones to NYC and to receive tutelage from the company. An ensemble encompassing the new students and Battery Dance members will tour U.S. schools, colleges and universities to introduce local students to dancers from Iraq and other countries in the region.
