The pre-program music and music throughout the show was provided by the Eisner's Klezmorim band.
The first performers were the Saana Finnish Folk Ensemble. This is a group of five very talented women, living in the Twin Cities, and all originally from Finland.
We were also entertained by Dazzling Dave. Who knew there are National Master Yo-Yo champion? Click here to see his amazing skills with a yo-yo.
A group called Green T productions gave us a view of the Pinocchio story through a Japanese lens.
Dr. Pangea Thunderblust gave all the children a test to learn if they had been paying attention to details such as countries for the dances or performers.
The final section of the program was provided by dancers from the Nay-Ah-Shing School, located on the Mille Lacs Band Reservation in east-central Minnesota.One dancer showed the Traditional Men's Dance. This dance is done only by men who have earned honor -- in the case of this dancer, his service in the U.S. military. His costume shows a bustle of eagle feathers. By treaty with the U.S. government, Indian tribes are able to possess eagle feathers. I would be in real trouble if I had eagle feathers!
And then finally at the end we had Minnesota Global Hotdish when all the performers gathered on the stage to sing together.
