Additional Goals:

    In addition, the Foundation will occasionally purchase costumes, accessories and props for members of The Performing Company to wear and use when representing us.


    The Foundation and its sponsors will also have access to the extensive library in the Isis Production Suites for the use of books, magazines and videos dedicated to the study of this art form.


    The Foundation and the Wings of Isis will present lectures and sponsor haflas and workshops which are open to everyone.
