Host In­ter­na­tional Dancers and Make Friends For a Life­time

Serve Daily - - NEWS -

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 folk­fest09@ya­hoo.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.
