R.O.C. -Remembering our Culture

My good friend Julie's Brother and Sister-in-law run a multicultural group know as R.O.C. They put on 2 performances a year and they are fantastic. It's so fun to see all the diversity we have here in Utah County.

It's especially fun because her nieces are in the group and are so talented. They showcase 5 different cultures; African, Asian, Latino, Native American, Polynesian. Here are a few photos I snapped of the dances from last night. Sorry that they are dark, but I'm sure you can still see the fun!

Julie and her family are part of the Iroquoi nation in upstate NY. That's her Niece on the far right.
