PRESENTING THE SNWMF 2017 DANCES AND WORKSHOPS

SNWMF 2017 will feature several dance performances and workshops that will be fun and entertaining for everyone! All of the performers listed will be showcased on the "Solstice Stage" except where noted. Performances will take place during the day, both Saturday and Sunday. You can find the Solstice Stage on the vendor lawn next to the Dance Hall. This is in addition to tons of fun stuff in the Kids Zone.



Here's the list of dance performances and workshops that will be conducted at SNWMF 2017:

Capoeira Agua De Beber
Based in Sacramento, they have been teaching and performing capoeira and related folkloric arts from Brazil since 2000. Capoeira is a fusion between martial arts, acrobatics, dance and music. Using kicks, dodges and steps, cartwheels, and spins, the players engage in a dialog of movement. The music is led by a single stringed instrument called the Berimbau.




Daring Arts Movement
Daring Arts Movement (D.A.M) creates lively, colorful, multi-sensory, immersive experiences for our audiences and students; sparking wonder, awe, accessibility, and learning through the arts. In addition to their dance and stilt performances throughout the event they will be offering their StiltSkool to give festival-goers an opportunity to explore the art form themselves. Don’t miss your chance to try it out!




Yoga with Karen Small
For over 12 years Karen has traveled across county to teach yoga at Sierra Nevada. Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is one of the very first festivals in the country to offer yoga! Each morning, we meet in unity and greet the solstice sun with breath and body movement. Solstice Yoga has a new location, across from the Food Court in the middle merchant bowl at the new Yoga Tent! Karen Small has been teaching yoga since 2002, met the national yoga teaching standards and is RYT200 Certified through the Yoga Alliance. Come as you are... bring a yoga mat, towel, water and a smile!




Obsidian Butterfly & Sacred Fire Dance
Obsidian Butterfly and Sacred Fire Dance Company provides entertainment for events, parties, festivals, and corporate gatherings since 2003. Though our specialty is fire and LED Light entertainment, we offer many types of entertainment options from jugglers, stilt walkers, unicycle rider, snake handler, hoop dancers, to Polynesian fire shows, and Cirque entertainment . Our shows are engaging and memorable. Join us for a fantastical journey at Midnight on the Valley Stage Friday and Saturday Night.




Jambalaya
Jambalaya is a collective of cultural dancers, percussionists, and musicians that feature an energetic stage performance of dance music rooted in African, Brazilian, Caribbean, Mediterranean and Latin rhythms. Paul Gordon founded Jambalaya with the mission to celebrate cultural diversity around the world, and share the group’s message of love, harmony and tolerance. Join Jambalaya on the Village Stage on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.




Bloco Elektro
Band director for Bloco Elektro Mike Scartezina had a vision. To create a Samba group that could rock house parties and shows. Bloco Elektro is a Nevada City based samba group with original arrangements. They play Samba Reggea, Batucada, 6/8, Samba Afro, Funk, Ijesha, Timbalada style. Its a roots tradition from Brazil to parade and rock the streets with just percussion and vocals. Look for them parading, playing stage shows, and rocking with the fire dancers.




Illuminated Fools
The Illuminated fools are a performance art troupe that has performed in Oregon and Northern California for over 30 years. Our Puppets are worn on the shoulders of our trained performers to give the illusion of “giants” presented as multi-cultural people. The Illuminated Fools have evolved over the years from small skit performers with social and political themes to the improvisational fun, joy bringing group we are today. There are many children in the group and we attract children and people of all ages with our parades.




Company of African Dance of Arcata
The Company of African Dance Arcata, choreographed and led by Christina McCabe is from Northern California. It is our honor to perform dances from Guinea, Senegal, and Mali. We strive to honor our teachers and reflect the love and passion we have for dance.
