What’s new in iLuminate
Who We Are
iLuminate is quickly becoming a household name, and why not when we were called “the best new act in America” during our run on America’s Got Talent in 2011?
Maybe you saw us on TV or maybe you’ve heard about us through one of our international appearances or saw our Live show in the heart of New York City. No matter how you found us, we’re just glad you did!
iLuminate is a company based on the fusion of technology and dance. This distinct intermix will reawaken your senses and imagination!
We are a diverse team of experts and together we create a visual experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Audiences will see dancers in electrified glow-in-the-dark suits performing dynamic routines and illusions on a darkened stage. It’s a show that’s completely unique to our brand and incomparable to any other dance performance.
iLuminate is the brainchild of Miral Kotb, a woman whose true passions in life are dance and software engineering, which is why you’ll see her both manning the keyboard and dancing on stage in our archive of video performances (which you absolutely should check out).
In 2009, Miral combined her two passions to create our patented iLuminate technology, the tool that enables performers, choreographers, engineers, technicians, stylists and artistic directors to produce explosive performances with customized wireless lighting programs. The results are extraordinary lighting effects choreographed with phenomenal dance moves that take viewers on an exhilarating ride.

What’s on the Horizon
iLuminate is investing what we do into education programs around the world. We’re passionate about introducing to the young generation how dance and technology come together and what can be created from this fusion.
The iLuminate Project is designed as a week long workshop where grade school
students ranging in age come together too learn how iLuminate works from behind-the-scenes. They first begin by choosing to be a technician or a dancer.
The week is filled with team building exercises and hands on work with an iLuminate representative. As a dancer you’ll learn choreography and experience the physical change of dancing in a light suit. As a technician you’ll learn how to create a basic LED suit, how to solder and to program light cues on Light Forge.
At the end of the week the students use their new skills and put on a showcase. We have witnessed students gaining self confidence and creative inspiration from this unique experience.
Our workshops have been extremely successful in Central Asia and New Zealand where we partnered with the US Embassy and at Cortland Repertory Theatre in Cortland, New York.
