Festival of Light is VANAVER CARAVAN's holiday production featuring music and dances of Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and more. The 12 dancers/musicians hail from four continents, with expertise from clogging to Afro-Brazilian Capoeira to classical jazz and ballet.

Recognizing that the arts often communicate what words fail to express, the mission of The Vanaver Caravan is to inspire, through dance and music, the harmonious co-existence of world cultures and traditions, to promote peace and celebrate our humanity. 

In cooperation with Breakthrough Miami
