REXBURG, Idaho ­­­- The International Folk Dance Ensemble from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, will perform Saturday, Jan. 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hart Auditorium at BYU-Idaho in Rexburg.

Their new show, Journey, is a 90-minute voyage of dance and music through the heartbeat of the world's cultures. In this show you will see Irish hard shoe, American clogging, Ukrainian Hopak, exotic Indian dances, and much more. It is a kaleidoscope of furious footwork, pulsing rhythms, live music and authentic costumes from across the globe.

The dance ensemble is accompanied by the highly versatile acoustic band Mountain Strings. These musicians provide live, engaging music that is every bit the dancers' equal in complexity, skill, and professionalism.

Since 1964, the dance group has toured all over the world, representing the United States and American folk culture. The group has become internationally famous at the world's most prominent folk dance festivals where they perform with many of the best dance companies from throughout the world. The group has traveled to more than 100 countries with their international repertoire.
