Union Mine High School’s Dance Department is pleased to present its 17th Annual Winter Dance Concert, Around the World in 5,6,7,8. This production highlights traditional ethnic dances from China to Louisiana; Greece to Algeria.


Multiculturalism is a prevalent and important concept in our current educational, social and political environment, encompassing historical contexts, relationships between race and society, and a focus on elements that determine cultural and social fabric, including the arts. Multiculturalism fosters self-regard and identity in one’s own culture; respect and connection towards the culture of others. In an effort for young performing artists at Union Mine High School to locate themselves physically, socially, morally and politically within an increasingly complex international context, they have used the vehicle of dance to traverse global cultures.


The UMHS Dance Department has collectively explored, studied, created and choreographed traditional dances from around the world. Students have developed an increased awareness of global and local ethnic and racial groups, and broadened their understanding of the culture and values of the pluralistic global society in which we live.


Please join us to celebrate Around the World in 5,6,7,8.
