• Illuminating the lives of others through dance
    • Bringing hope to those in need of healing
    • Enlightening, inspiring performances
  • Our Mission

    Lume Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation that uses dance to improve the quality of life for patients and individuals at healthcare facilities such as hospitals, rehabilitation centers, geriatric care centers, and different types of counseling centers.

    Lume Foundation engages and inspires these individuals through performances, dance classes, and personal visits, all of which are volunteered services for the healthcare facilities.

    It is Lume’s mission to provide hope and happiness to communities in need of healing, comfort, and support. Lume Foundation brings light into challenging times and situations, illuminating the lives of others through dance.

  • Performing

    Lume hires dance companies and independent dance artists to perform at healthcare facilities providing the viewers with the therapeutic benefits of live art: a communal and cathartic experience, intellectual and aesthetic stimulation, and a positive interruption to daily, regimented activities. Lume offers these viewers an uplifting experience they might not have received otherwise due to their present circumstances and isolated environments.

  • Teaching

    In addition to live performances, Lume offers dance and movement exploration classes to the individuals at these healthcare facilities. This movement instruction aligns with the goals of many physical and mental therapy centers. Through these classes, the participants are encouraged not only to become physically active, increasing a number of health benefits, but also artistically inventive allowing for self-expression and creative thought.

    Lume’s classes are taught by professional dance educators and include teaching assistants for one-on-one patient instruction and care. Ms. Mandradjieff’s experience educating students with special needs has taught her that one-on-one instruction, within a larger class setting, is the most successful classroom structure. It allows for efficient classroom management, a more personal and communicative student-teacher relationship, and develops a safe, integrated classroom setting that adheres to the student’s individual needs.

  • News

    Currently, Lume is collaborating with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where Mara Mandradjieff, Lume's Executive Director, is officially part of Children's volunteer network.

    After the shows, the professional dancers interact with patients and even pass out small dance tokens such as autographed ballet photos and tutus. This adds to the excitement of the show and allows for further personal interaction and involvement.

    It is Lume's goal to bring this type of personal connection to the patients unable to attend the larger events due to severe illness or limited mobility. Lume plans on having dancers visit the accessible floors at the hospital to bring joy to the patients on a more regular basis.

  • Dancers Making a Difference

    Lume Foundation is an organization of dance artists who wish to share their talent, passion, and love with those in need. These members of the dance community welcome outreach work as a means to make a difference through artistic practice.
