We are pleased to welcome as our guest group this year, Lehakat Kadima from Porto Alegre, Brazil! Lehakat Kadima kicks off their 40th anniversary year with their Israeli Dance Festival DC debut. The group has been growing and developing through the years and is currently considered the standard for Israeli folk dancing in South America. In addition to performing across South America, Lehakat Kadima has also performed at the Carmiel Dance Festival in Israel, and Machol Europa in England. They are excited to be performing for the first time in North America, and we can't wait to welcome them to Washington DC!
