Latvia Folkmoot USA performance today at the Hi-Tech Center

We had the great privilege of watching the talented folkmoot dancers from Latvia this afternoon. We were told that all the dancers in the group only performed as a hobby, they all actually had other jobs to make a living. The speaker of the group was a dance teacher, and she had a great sense of humor, along with beautiful grace as she performed. The Latvia group performed quite a few dances & each dance told a story..One of the favorites was the boy sees girl, boy chases girl, then girl gives in, then girl chases boy.. It was very cute & entertaining.. Check out the videos of their dances.. They were a delightful group & we are truly glad they came to visit us today.. They are much better LIVE.. so to find the date & time of their performances, CLICK HERE. Their next performance is July 28, 2:00 pm"”Blue Ridge Community College, Bo Thomas Auditorium, Flat Rock. Adults $25; Children (12 & under) ½ price.

Thank you Latvia for putting great smiles & giving a taste of your culture.. Welcome to mountains of Western North Carolina
