Here is a glimpse of the Ethnic Dance Festival i attended in San Fransisco. This video was taken by my sister as we were watching the impromptu dance session by the participating groups in the foyer. The most exciting thing about the festival for me was the flawless way in which these dance group took the audience around the world, each telling a story about the culture and traditions and history of their country and region. The fact that they had live music along with the dance rather then recorded as i have seen in many festivals, made a huge difference in creating the appropriate ambience for the audience. Also the encore performance by all the groups together was not only well choreographed but also gave out the message that no matter which country or ethnicity we belong to, music and dance transcends all the barrier and makes all of us world citizens.
