Children will take daily classes in folk dance from Peru, Egypt, India and North America by master teachers from California, Oregon and Washington. There will also be classes in drumming world rhythms and creating aspects of traditional dress.

Daily breakfast, lunch, and snack will be provided, and will include foods from the 4 world regions.

The week will culminate with a Friday evening performance on July 1st for parents, guardians, family, and friends. The children perform the dances they learned during the week, wearing elements of traditional dress they created. There will be performances by our master teachers, as well as the award-winning Peruvian Folk Dance group Tusuy Perua. Our set will be designed by Portland instillation artist Amirra Malak. It will be an amazing show!
