Chicago Folk Festival – Dancing in Unity
Let’s rewind two months and revisit an event that’s now a Chicago icon. For the second year in a row, it brought people from different nationalities together to dance as one big family, presenting dances from Bulgaria, Poland, Mexico, Spain, Slovakia, Serbia, and Ukraine – all sharing one stage!
We are extremely happy that, together with the Bulgarica and the VivAnov dance group Chicago, we had the opportunity to organize this year’s Chicago Folk Festival 2023 for the second consecutive year.
In this special interview series, we’d like to introduce you to participants from the festival, sharing their happiness and unforgettable moments. They talk about their personal experiences, the feeling of being part of a global community, and their deep love for dance.
