The SAFDF concerts showcase the beautiful talent and energy of local performing folk dance groups, plus special guests from further away. These performances, together with the fabulous ambiance and professional stage of OLLU's Thiry Auditorium, combine for an unforgettable evening of music, song, and dance.
