Image <BR>Chitresh Das<P>This very popular annual event is back:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>International movement</B><P>Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P>When Chitresh Das speaks of the challenges facing the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, he might as well be describing the state of ethnic dance in America.<P>"You are seeing one penny of one dollar," says the North Indian classical dance guru. "Only one teesy bit. How can you show an art form, which you usually perform for two to three hours, in 10 minutes time in the Ethnic Dance Festival? Basically you're watching a mini-world. So how do you educate, or rather inform, the people?"<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/ex_files/default.jsp?story=X0607ETHNIC1" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

Another preview:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>World of dance</B><P>MANY CULTURES MEET IN FESTIVAL THAT CELEBRATES BAY AREA DIVERSITY<P>ANITA AMIRREZVANI, San Jose Mercury News <P>The Ethnic Dance Festival is like a map of Bay Area cultures.

But perhaps none of its guests better personifies that theme than Walnut Creek's own Polynesian dance company, Na Mamo No'eau.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.contracostatimes.com/timeout/perform/stories/x14ethnic_20010614.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

A wacky review!<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>World beat, world moves</B><P>Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P>Let's say you were at a party where everyone was dancing and you knew you were a terrible dancer but your friends were dragging you onto the floor. <P>Let's say you finally decided to go for broke and do your best parody of the way tragically unhip people dance in cheesy nightclubs: arms flailing side to side, feet shuffling forward and back in imitation of the Running Man. <P>You'd look a heck of a lot like the dancers of Renacer Folklorico Bolivia, except you wouldn't be shouting oddly militant salutations every few bars of music, or wearing a funny straw hat adorned with brightly colored balls on wire antennae.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/ex_files/default.jsp?story=X0619ETHNICw" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
