Dear Filhos Da Bahia,
I want to thank you once again for your fantastic contribution to our multicultural festival at Temple Beth Israel this past Sunday. What a wonderful way to begin the festival – so much energy, skill and joy in your dancing! It’s clear how much you all delight in your “dialogue of movement and interaction”. Thanks, too, for stepping it more or less at the last minute. It’s deeply appreciated.
I do hope we’ll have the pleasure of enjoying your performance again sometime. I think you made a lot of converts to capoeira that afternoon!
You may like to know that the festival was a great success. Though numbers started modestly, we estimate that by the end 400-450 people came through the synagogue, and at one point there were 300 in the hall – it was really packed!
Thank you for contributing to the spirit of fellowship and mutual pleasure in culture that we created together.
