Description

This free public performance is part of the Rotunda Dance Series, a partnership between Dancers’ Group and World Arts West with San Francisco’s Grants for the Arts and San Francisco City Hall. June's featured groups, Ballet Folklórico Netzahualcoyotl and Fogo Na Roupa Performing Company, serve as the opening event of the 35th Anniversary San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, which celebrates and fosters appreciation for the diverse ethnic communities in the Bay Area.

Ballet Folklórico Netzahualcoyotl performs Matlachines of Zacatecas, a Catholic processional dance performed in the city of Zacatecas to honor The Virgin of Guadalupe. Fogo Na Roupa performs Carnaval do Fogo, bringing an unstoppable street party to the Rotunda, dancing clothes-on-fire samba, a full contingent of drummers and dancers parading together—with a shared goal is euphoria.
