Rexburg Dance Festival

The Idaho international dance and music festival only one week away!


 Information about the Dancing:


This year there are over 300 dancers and musicians that will come to us from around the globe for this gala event to share the excitement of their native dances and music. These performances are alive with colorful costuming, exotic instruments and stirring rhythms. The Idaho International Dance and Music Festival is only one of four held annually festivals of this nature in the United States. Sanctioned by one of the largest folk arts organizations in the world, the CIOFF (whose headquarters in Confolons, France), the event is one-of-a-kind and extremely unique.
