My roommate is in a Latin dance performance group that performed recently at the Dance for World Community Festival. So of course, I went along to support her and enjoy the dancing. (And broke a toe in the process, but totally worth it!)
On the left, my roommate joyfully dancing and on the right, her teammates performing a bachata routine.
A young folklorico dancer who performed right after Anna’s group. She was quite fun to watch.
After ice cream, we watched a group of Iranian folk dancers (only noted in the schedule as Iranian Dance). Their outfits were as intricate and lovely as their dance.
I’d never seen Iranian dancing before, but it was a really beautiful form of dance, with lots of graceful, subtle movements that were entrancing to watch.
They finished with this pose, which I thought exemplified both the grace of the dance and the absolutely gorgeous costumes.
Here, a type of – for lack of better phrasing – line dance, with lots of intricate footwork.
A group shot of the men and women dancing.
Everyone seemed really happy to be out on the stage!
And, my favorite, a hand shot – so much of the dance seemed to center around what they were doing with their hands, so I’m glad to capture this moment.
