Le Ragazze has been together since 2007 and combined bring together over 50 years of experience, sharing their love of Italian culture, music and dance with diverse audiences. The troupe has performed at various community festivals, church functions and has been known to dance the night away during Winnipeg’s best festival – Folklorama.
The very essence of Italian culture is embodied in the troupe’s repertoire and includes dances from all the various regions of Italy.
“Le Ragazze would be pleased to share with you the culture, rhythm and spirit that is demonstrated through the passion of dance,” explains the troupe in its publicity. “Allow the swish of a skirt, the shake of a tambourine and the vibrant dances as interpreted by Le Ragazze to draw you into the piazzas of Italy.”
Folkmoot, a word meaning “meeting of the people,” provides communities all over Western North Carolina the opportunity to build a deeper sense of connection, mutual respect and shared purpose by experiencing other cultures. Now in its third decade, Folkmoot is North Carolina’s official international folk festival.
Dancers from 10 nations around the globe will perform at 35th edition of Folkmoot Festival when it convenes this coming summer in our beloved Smoky Mountains.
