2018 Visiting Performance Groups

Taiwan National University of Arts

The Festival is thrilled to be hosting a dance group from the Taiwan National University of Arts. The students are professionally trained in a wide variety of dance styles, including ballet, modern dance, traditional Chinese and folk dances, and aboriginal dance. This year the university is presenting a combination of traditional ethnic dances featuring elements of American jazz.

 Khmer Legacy Museum Visiting Performers

The Festival is partnering with the Khmer Legacy Cambodian Museum & Performing Arts Center in St. Paul to present a group of performers and artists visiting from Cambodia.  The group will be participating in a number of Festival areas, including on the World Stage and in the Folk Art Demonstrations.  In addition, the performers will present a Chai Yum – a traditional parade featuring giant puppets and live music.
