Our Brazilian Ball event’s having a makeover: it’s now a less formal, more family-friendly event, in keeping with our previous Living Cultures Series.
We are excited about this re-envisioned Brazilian event as it will be a more authentic representation of Brazil’s many cultures and has the potential for engaging a greater number of people in celebrating Central Iowa’s culturally rich diversity.
What Has Changed
The Living Cultures: Brazil event will still be held on Saturday, May 13, but here’s what is changing:
- The Time: 7:00-10:00 PM
- The Location: Valley High School in West Des Moines
- The Audience: The event will be more kid-friendly
- The Attire: Festive but casual
- The Ticket Price: has gone down, so it’s more affordable for families (and children under 6 will be admitted free)
- The Ticket Page: Find it at: https://tinyurl.com/living-cultures-brazil
What Has Not Changed
The event will still be a celebration of Brazilian culture, including Brazilian food, live performances by The Brazilian 2wins, Choro Moingona, Brazilian Moves, and Fitness Connections, and more – Carnaval-style face art and Brazilian dances that everyone can join in and learn.
