The University Folklorico Summit (UFS), an initiative of Danzantes Unidos, is a three-day leadership and cultural arts conference designed for collegiate folklorico groups. UFS provides a forum for university folklorico group leaders to meet, share their best practices, and strategize for their communities. UFS strives to educate the next generation of folklorico student leaders of the multiple facets and characteristics that make up an efficient and sustainable university folklorico group.
UFS 2016 “Leaders Today To Create Legacies Tomorrow” will take place on February 19-21 at San Jose State University, 1 Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192. The event is hosted by Grupo Folklorico Luna y Sol de San Jose State and will take place in the SJSU Student Union. UFS 2016 participants will have an opportunity to attend cultural and organizational development workshops, movement workshops, and partake in networking opportunities. Student leaders and administrators of high school folklorico groups are encouraged to participate.
UFS strives to educate the next generation of folklorico student leaders of the multiple facets and characteristics that make up an efficient and sustainable university folklorico group. By the end of this summit, it is the hope that all participants will carry the shared experience back to their respective schools and nurture their folklorico groups to continue developing as strong representatives of our shared history, cultura, and experience.
