The dancers and performers did an extraordinary job and everyone in attendance agreed that the food was delicious!  The performances were exceptional and captured the essence of cultures. The following dance styles were alive at the festival: Modern, Salsa,  Capoeria, Marinera, Portuguese Folk Dances, Caribbean Dances, Chinese Traditional, Hip-Hop, Pop, African, Samba, Contemporary, Reggae,  and Soca. 

Mr. Parrish would like to extend a special thank you to all the students, parents, and community members who supplied and enjoy the foods, desserts, and drinks of the various cultures presented at the festival. A special "Thank You!" also, to Washington Middle School teacher, Ms. Tara Kraenzlin, for capturing the spirit and the beauty of the event in the accompanying photographs!
