Imagine: colorful dresses, rhythmic skirt flourishes and fancy heel stomping. No, we’re not talking about any given night at Barbarella. It’s folklorico dancing and it’s awesome. The Round Rock Ballet Folklorico and the City of Round Rock kicks off the third annual Summer Cultural Fest 2010 this Saturday, July 24. It’s a series of multi-cultural performances held at the Round Rock Amphitheater on 301 W. Bagdad. Oh, and it’s free.
Any and all fans, or those of you just curious as to what Folklorico is, head out and watch performances from 7-9PM at the Round Rock Amphitheatre located behind the Baca Center on 301 Bagdad in Round Rock, Texas.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and watch featured artists are Okinawa Tomonokai, Bollywood Shake, and The Love of China, with Round Rock Ballet Folklorico performing beautiful traditional dances from the states of Michoacan and Hidalgo, Mexico and featuring the Zoot Suit from the Mexican American culture of the 1940’s.
