Manos p’arriba! On Your Feet International Music & Dance

22 04 2010

There’s so many things going on this weekend but if you love international music and dancing, there’s one event you can not miss! On Your Feet International Music and Dance Extravaganza is this weekend and you better get ready to get your groove on! By the way, what’s up with all these dance/music festivals calling themselves “extravaganza” all the time??? Okay, I digress.  Not only will it be a good time but it’s for a great cause. The event will raise awareness and cold hard cash for Casa Marianella, a nonprofit that provides shelter and services to immigrants in Austin.

Check out their vid and line-up!

An exotic evening of sizzling music and captivating dances by world class performers that are sure to keep your feet moving and your head bobbin!
