The April Lyrids are a meteor shower occurring in April, also called April’s shooting stars. These meteors tend to be bright and often leave trails. The radiant point of the Lyrid meteor shower is near the bright star Vega in the constellation Lyra the Harp. The word “Lyric” derives from the Greek word λυρικός (lyrikos), meaning “singing to the lyre”. Of course, the constellation Lyra represents the lyre, an ancient stringed musical instrument.
There are two ways to donate. If you donate towards operating expenses, your donation will go towards keeping fees as low as possible. If you donate towards scholarships, your donation is used to subsidize the tuition fees for work-exchange dancers, elders and youth.
No. Cristian and Sonia have their syllabus, music, and movies available on CDs/DVDs that they sell. They have requested that we do not give away the syllabus. Everyone who wants the syllabus must buy it from them. We asked if we could get pre-orders so that people may get the syllabus ahead of time and they agreed. That is why the syllabus is on the registration form. The syllabus will only be emailed to the registrants who have purchased it on the registration form. Having now read this, you can email us to add the syllabus to your registration if you have already submitted it.
No. Cristian and Sonia have all their dances on their DVDs which will be available for purchase at the festival. Fortunately, they have agreed to be video recorded for the festival DVD (available one year after the festival date).
