Work Cited

The video up here is a international folkdance festival in Ecuador. What I like about it that they have different dances that they do with different people and different costumes. They also have a band that goes with dance right by them. Something that I think is interesting about is that there festival was inside in a gym, but ive only been to festivals outside. I also like there outfits, and how they had orginal dances and like bells on there outfits.
