World Dance Passport: Travel the World Through Dance

Sunday -
4:00pm- 7:00pm
Online Event!

Lotus Music & Dance is pleased to present World Dance Passport, as part of the Cultural Immigrant Initiative with support from NYC Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez featuring Bahar Dance, Calipulli Mexican Dance, and Oyu Oro Afro-Cuban Dance. These artists will share their cultural heritages through dances as well as share their immigrant stories. Many of these groups have settled in NYC for more than 10 years, and are passing on their respective traditional art forms to the next generation.

Featured artists include Bahar Dance Ensemble, a group of master dancers who will perform an excerpt from Persian and Mystic Suite, a display of Persian Classical, Persian folk-pop-styling, and a contemporary poetic and spiritual ritual, based on tradition of Whirling Dervishes; Oyu Oro Afro-Cuban Dance Ensemble with its mission to preserve Afro-Cuban culture through dance, song and music using traditional dance forms that derive from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, and many more, and Calpulli Mexican Dance Company, a vibrant dance ensemble that brings various interpretations of traditional Aztec dances and other regional dances of Mexico.

This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. This event is not sponsored or endorsed by the NYC Department of Education.
