Journey: A World of Dance and Music

Presented by the Brigham Young University International Folk Dance Ensemble
Any wanderer will tell you that there is something magical about discovering new places and timeless traditions. The International Folk Dance Ensemble invites audiences to entertain their wanderlust with an evening of dance and music. Their new show, Journey, is a 90-minute voyage of dance and music through the heartbeat of the world’s cultures. In this show you will see Irish hard shoe, American clogging, Ukrainian Hopak, exotic Indian dances, and much more. It is a kaleidoscope of furious footwork, pulsing rhythms, live music, and authentic costumes from across the globe. So throw off the bowlines and catch the wind in your sails as our companion on this Journey. 
The dance ensemble is accompanied by the highly versatile and highly acclaimed acoustic band Mountain Strings. These musicians provide live, engaging music that is every bit the dancers’ equal in complexity, skill, and professionalism. The musicians demonstrate such extraordinary talent that their performance could be—and, in some venues, often is—a show unto itself. 
The ensemble recently returned from Europe where they performed in three international folk festivals; The International Folklore Festival in Karlovac, Croatia; ‘Ciudad de Burgos’ International Folkloric Festival in Burgos, Spain; and Extremadura Festival in Badajoz, Spain.

Early bird pricing available through January 15.

Student/child pricing available by calling or coming in to the box office.
