In Dance Groups, International Folk Dance Ensemble, Tour

BYU Folk Dance Ensemble is headed to Nauvoo, IL this week to perform for a two week period as the historic site’s featured entertainment.

From June 6 through 19, Folk Dance Ensemble will have the opportunity to be on home turf after having toured to Croatia and Spain during the summer of 2015.

When touring abroad, Folk Dance Ensemble typically focuses on representing American culture to international audiences, but this summer’s performances in Nauvoo will allow the dancers to present other cultures to American audiences. Additionally, the team will learn about Nauvoo’s significance in Mormon pioneer history.

Veteran folk dancer Tanner Long is excited about this new opportunity. “We’ll get to develop a deeper appreciation for our own culture, as well as the cultures we represent,” he says.
