Radost's dancers, singers and musicians carry in their hearts a deep commitment to the folklore we present and a desire to share that love and knowledge with others. Radost offers a unique opportunity for your school to enhance its multicultural curriculum.
Radost will coordinate with your school a program of performances and workshops designed to integrate into your existing classes and educational goals. Some possibilities:
