Serbian Assembly Dance Group “Srpska Mladost” from Guelph, Ontario will be among many groups performing at the Intercultural Dance Festival 2017 Saturday, May 20 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at St. Sava Church, 9191 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, IN.

Performers from “Srpska Mladost” are part of  Sts. Cyril and Methodius parish. The group was founded in September 2014 in effort to preserve heritage, language, and collaborate with other Serbian dance groups in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in southwestern Ontario, Canada.

“Srpska Mladost” will join Srbadija Folklore, the youth folklore dance group at St. Sava, and many other dance groups as they perform in this special showcase of dance from different cultures and delight all with Serbian cuisine and the famous bake sale available during the event. Approximately 12 different dance groups have confirmed they will be performing and will be sharing their talents.

This will be the third consecutive year of the Intercultural Festival hosted in the new Pavilion at St. Sava that draws hundreds of people and unites through culture and dance.

This year there will be some familiar dance groups from previous festivals and some new additions to the lineup. More details of the names of the groups performing and some background about what you can expect to experience will be posted in the weeks and days leading up to the event.

This year groups representing Serbian, Polish, and other Eastern European nationalities will be performing, with more groups still joining the lineup. Performers this year will be traveling from as far away as Alberta, Niagara Falls, and Ontario in Canada.

Previous dance festivals have featured groups representing different regions of Serbia, Mexico, Greece, Ireland, and India in the performance.

Please save the Saturday, May 20 date to join us for the Third Annual Intercultural Festival, hosted by Srbadija Folklore, at St. Sava Church, 9191 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, IN 46410.
