Host International Dancers and Make Friends For a Lifetime
Summer is here and host families are needed to house performers coming to participate in Springville World Folkfest 2014. This is an international folk dance festival where dancers stay with families in the community and share their talent, culture and friendship. Hosting is an amazing opportunity to serve and share culture, build lifelong friendships and provide valuable interaction with people all over the world.
The dates for hosting this year are July 27 through August 2. Depending on arrival and departure times it might be a few more days. Please let us know if you are interested in a certain country. Keep in mind that because of complications with visas and fundraising, groups from some countries might not make it to the festival. We ask host families to be flexible and open to hosting from another country if their first or second choice does not come.
These areas have performers coming to this years’ Folkfest: Lithuania, Australia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, Belgium, France, Georgia (Russia) and Hawaii.
To participate as a host family, contact Housing Chair Trudy Peck at 801-885- 6709 or email@example.com. If you don’t think you can do it this year but would love to be considered next year, let us know and you will be added to our list of families to contact next year.
If you can’t host, please remember to come and enjoy the Springville World Folkfest July 28 - August 2 at Spring Acres Park. Find more information about the event at www.worldfolkfest.com.
