ASU World Festival

ASU World Festival

On March 30, I was among a delegation of Phoenix International Folk Dancers who performed at the 28th Annual World Festival at Arizona State University. Organizations representing the cultures of many countries set up booths for friendly interaction. And, of course, foreign cuisine was available for sampling.

A karate school gave a martial arts demonstration, using student volunteers.

I wish I had some photographs of Phoenix International Folk Dancers’ performance, but I was dancing at the time. We had some audience participation. Lots of fun!
