Zabor Dance’s Edwin Roa (and his collaborators) use a few fancy steps to bring the community together at the Zaltandi dance festival on Friday, September 14.

If you really want to move people, get them dancing together. That’s the thinking behind the Charlottesville world dance festival Zaltandi, a collaboration between Soul of Cville, IX Art Park, The Charlottesville Salsa Club, The Dance Spot, Zabor Dance Project, and a list of artists performing various dance styles from many ethnicities. The festival’s goal is “to demonstrate that our community is strong and thriving, because of our diversity and our desire to connect, share, understand, and harmonize,” and the good vibes culminate in a Dance for Equality.

Rescheduled to Sunday, October 21. Free, 5:30pm. IX Art Park, 522 Second St. SE. 270-0966.
