2014 Nations of San Diego International Dance Festival Brings Artistic Delight

2014 Nations of San Diego International Dance Festival brought together the world’s styles of dances for their 20th Anniversary Celebration.  From the India to Ireland each of the dancers performed native works that represent their unique heritage. 

Beautiful colors, excellent choreography, and folk themed music brought delight to a packed audience.  Over 30 dance companies from 18 different countries made their way onto the stage throughout the evening. 

The project was funded by the Coronado School of the Arts Foundation that pools grants and donations to promote festivals and other projects for public awareness. Without the generous contributions of the corporate and personal sponsors such activities may diminish. Cultural awareness helps in exposing people to a broader world. 

Even though each of the performances had their merit the dancers from Blue Ming Chinese Dance Company put on a spectacular displace of color and coordinated movement. The dance was varied, synchronized, and created a story in the audience’s mind. More than a dozen mask wearing dancers created a color show on stage. 

The Danyavaad and the Shimmy Sisters brought you through a traditional Middle Eastern lounge dance. She was alone on the stage and twirled while adjusting the perception of her shape throughout the entire performance. At times she seemed like a spirit while at other times she was in perfect poise. The skill of the dancer was profound and it is apparent she practices her craft.
