DANCE | Akragas Folk Dance Group 

Casa Italiana — an organization on Nazareth College's campus that offers educational, social, and cultural programs related to Italy and its culture — will host a couple of events this week featuring the Akragas Folk Dance Group of Sicily. Wearing costumes from the late-19th century and using distinct instruments, Akragas performs traditional music and dances of the Sicilian people — and the cultures that have influenced the region in the past, including Greek, Roman, Turkish, and Arabic.

Akragas Folk Dance Group will perform during the Casa Italiana Open House on Thursday, September 24, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and again on Friday, September 25, at 7 p.m. in Callahan Theatre at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. The Casa Italiana Open House is free, and tickets to Friday's performance are $7-$15. For more information, visit or call 389-2170.
