Dance Traditions from Around the Globe

Fourth Annual World Culture Festival at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

will offer performances, activities, and workshops for all ages

Visit as well this official page here…

On Saturday, October 26, The Metropolitan Museum of Art will host its fourth annual World Culture Festival, with this year’s events and activities centered on the theme of “Dance.” Workshops, performances, puppetry, art making, and more will explore how artists find inspiration and express themselves through movement, and participants of all ages will have the opportunity to experiment with motion. The festival is free with Museum admission, which is pay-as-you-wish for New York State residents as well as students from New Jersey and Connecticut.

“Each year, The Met’s World Culture Festival welcomes New Yorkers of all backgrounds to celebrate and share their traditions surrounded by inspiring works of art from across time and around the world,” said Sandra Jackson-Dumont, the Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education. “The universal power of movement is present in cultures all over the globe. We are excited about this year’s theme of ‘Dance’ and the lineup of incredible workshops, performances, and other experiences that bring art to life in new ways at The Met.”

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers—the longest-running Native American Dance Company in New York—will perform in the American Wing in observance of Native American Heritage Month; and the nation’s leading Latino dance organization, Ballet Hispánico, will host flamenco and salsa dancing workshops in recognition of Hispanic Heritage month. To celebrate Diwali, The Culture Tree will present a puppet show inspired by Krishna, one of the most widely revered and popular Indian gods. Award-winning movement artist and poet Jahra “Rager” Wasasala will perform God-House (bure kalou), a work that explores the vivid realms related to the artifacts in the exhibition Atea: Nature and Divinity in Polynesia.

World Culture Festival: Dance! is made possible in part by the E.H.A. Foundation and Tiger Baron Foundation. Additional support is provided by Jody and John Arnhold and Antique Tribal Art Dealers’ Association.
