A Multicultural Dance Show

Last year my daughter participated in La Raza Club at school and performed a traditional folklorico dance for the school's Multicultural Dance Show. (I tried to find some photos, but I was at a total loss. Sorry!)

She joined the Desi Club this year. Desi Club put focus on a timeline of different Indian dances, starting from traditional Indian dance to modern dance.


Silly Baby Girl hamming it up for the camera before the show.

Remember when I showed you her first attempt at the Arabic Double Wing for Makeup Monday? Then I showed you the results of her first trip to the nail salon in my Week in Review, where she had her nails done in green & gold. Well, the reason behind all of that style and beauty was the Desi Club performance at the Multicultural Dance Show. 





To get a similar makeup look, check out the Makeup Monday post for products used.
Plus, Madison Street Beauty has a 60% off sale going on for Mother's Day.
Be sure to use coupon code MSB5 to save an extra 20% too!

I really like it when school teach multiculturalism like this. It gives everyone a chance to learn and see how cultures can come together and share something special.

I was trying to upload the video of the dance performance, but I guess I'm still learning about video stuff...It wasn't working out for me. So for now, photos will just have to do.

Have you ever attended a multicultural event? I'd love to hear about it!

Schools that support different cultures are the best ones there is. And love the outfit and makeup. Thanks for sharing :)

She looks beautiful! And it's wonderful she is involved in something like this. I did it back in high school and had so much fun learning more about a new culture and dancing. I learned the Tarentella I think it is called, an Italian dance :)

Very lovely!
I used to work in higher ed. and the International Dept. would put on culture shows quite often. They were always awesome!

Clair said...

I work with a lot of international students, so we are constantly encouraging an exchange of cultural traditions! Lovely to see it happening elsewhere x

When I was a Girl Scout we'd have an International Fair every year, where each troop in the school district would represent a different country. We'd make food and a couple of crafts, and set up a display table in the gym. It was one of my favorite things we did!
