Dance Around the World with Nikola Clay
July 23, 2022, 11 am
Sing, Laugh and Dance your way around the world with Nikola Clay. Children and their families are invited to experience a variety of cultures through the universal language of music and dance as we learn several easy folk dances, the favorites of children near and far. Dances like El Juego Chirimbolo from Ecuador, La Mariposa, the butterfly dance from Bolivia, Niwawa “Clay Doll” from China, Hoe E Ana, the Canoe dance from Tahiti and of course the Penguin Dance from our friends down in Antarctica, dances from the North Pole to the South Pole.
Folk dancing is a wonderful way to introduce children to the music and culture of various regions as well as pass on the traditions of one’s ancestors. Dancing is uplifting and empowering and gives children of different ethnic backgrounds a sense of pride as they discover a part of their history.
Nikola has been teaching these dances to children, teens, and adults through public and private schools, at music and dance camps and through outreach programs for over 17 years.
