Dancers teach cultural lesson

May 17, 2005

Albany - Some world-renowned dancers entertained Albany students. The International Folk Dance Ensemble, from Brigham Young University, performed for students at Morningside Elementary Tuesday morning. The dance group travels the globe, performing the tradition folk dances of many countries.

"We're here to give them a cultural experience with music and dances from other areas of the world. We hope their appreciation of the world will grow just a little bit," said Artistic Director Ed Austin.

The students also joined in with some not-so-traditional dance moves. You can watch the Brigham Young folk dancers at 7:30PM Tuesday at the Municipal Auditorium in Albany. Ticket sales benefit Flint River Habitat for Humanity.
