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 2018 “Bailando Sin Fronteras: Fortaleciendo nuestra comunidad por medios de educación y baile ” was hosted by Los Mejicas de UC Santa Cruz and will took place on October 4, 5 & 6 at University of California, Santa Barbara. UFS 2019 participants will have an opportunity to attend cultural and organizational development workshops, movement workshops, and partake in networking opportunities. Student leaders (ages 18+) of folklorico groups in universities and colleges, as well as, administrators/directors 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.
