Passport to Dance produced by Encinitas Friends of the Arts

Encinitas Friends of the Arts (EFA) presented an evening of dance from Indonesia, China, Spain, Ireland and America on Saturday May 11,  at the Encinitas Community Center. I did not realize it at the time, but I was coming down with a stupid cold which came out later that night. Because of that I apologize for not being able to give a full report on this outstanding events. I saw the last act only in rehearsals as I had to leave early and my head was a bit muzzy and still is. But I so thoroughly enjoyed this very special evening that I have to crow. What would it have been like if I had been able to stay to the end and was on fine form?  

The stage was enormous, giving plenty of room for the performances and turning the humble community center into a happening place. I have included video of part of three of the performances because, after all this is dance. There also links so you can see more.But nothing replaces the experience of being there so close for what was really an intimate evening.  This international event was brought to our town and we got to have a taste of these other passport needed.  I along with others feel very lucky to be living near Encinitas.
