Event Description

100 Years Celebration


The 100 Years of Maria Montessori Celebration was a two part event held at the University of Houston, Main Campus on October 6, 2007 and was attended by over 5000 people. The Global Village was a fun family festival that consisted of 10 cultural huts representing cultures from around the world including North America, France, Italy and Saudi Arabia. Best Entertainers provided all the entertainment.

Throughout the day, attendees were treated to stage performances from Grammy Award Nominee, Dave Rudolf and Performing Cirque Artist Rebekah Loeweke. Andrea White kicked off the event with a stage presentation to the sponsors and walked thru the grounds perusing all the fun huts and was amazed by the exhibition detailing the life of Maria Montessori. The evening show was an amazing cultural performance with the highlight being a cirque du soliel performer who enchanted the guests with her aerial feats. Other performances include an African drummer band, a Brazilian dance ensemble and the spectacular, breath-taking performance by the Chinese Dragon stilt walkers.
