Grand Opening of the 35th San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival
Our Festival opens with two grand historical dance performances: Ballet Folklórico Netzahualcoyotl - Don’t miss this colorful, percussive dance from Zacatecas, Mexico, which has both Spanish and indigenous Nahuatl origins. This processional piece, performed to honor the Virgin of Guadalupe, features dancers in magnificent hats, spinning in lines, and marking time with clapping sandals, clicking beads, and gourd rattles. Fogo Na Roupa Performing Company - In full euphoria and full regalia, San Francisco’s prize-winning Afro-Brazilian Carnaval dancers will perform with a full drum bateria and contingent of dancers in glorious coque feather headpieces. This is urban-derived, African inspired, clotheson- fire, funky Fogolystic samba reggae at its best!
