The Children’s International Folk Dance Festival typically showcases thousands of children from across Indiana in grades three through eight performing international folk dances. Since 1971, these students have learned the dances from music, P.E., and/or grade-level teachers throughout the academic year in preparation for the festival. The dances come from the Kentucky Dance Institute, a summer dance festival showcasing international dances.
