SILVER DOLLAR CITY - WORLD FEST | Trip Report 04.11.10
Over in the Boatworks Theatre, one of the two acts performing there was
Kerry Christensen who is a "master yodeler". He performed with his accordian
and also on the long pipe horn which was made famous in those Riccola commercials.
In the Riverfront Playhouse, Calpulli Dance Troupe is performing.
Calpulli takes us on a musical journey through the dance & dance of Mexico.
The mariachi band was very talented and could rival the one from Epcot.
I enjoyed the dancing, especially how the females would "dance" with their skirts.
This style of dancing is what I remember most from my visit to Mexico
and it was so neat to see it on display at WORLD FEST this year.
In the Opera House, the Zhejiang Acrobats from China are back.
This year's show features all new acts, including this one themed to
a bridge in the winter covered in snow. It featured diablo juggling.
This act themed to a lotus flower featured a very talented hand balancier.
...and speaking of amazing, this parasol juggler was awesome.
