[Korean Folkdancers Gathering in a Circle]

Description:

Photograph of female dancers from the Korean Folkdancing School in Houston, Texas, performing at the Texas Folklife Festival. They are wearing very colorful traditional garments with colors of hot pink, yellow, blue, green, red and white. They are gathering together all facing one another with their arms up in the air. They are wearing colorful sleeves that extend far beyond their hands. Each sleeve has large stripes of blue, green, yellow and red close to the wrist, but the rest of the sleeve is white. Each dancer is wearing a pink sash that is attached to their head and extends down their back. They are dancing in an area that is shaded with a colorful canopy. On the right side of the photograph is a blue storage shed. Near the shed stands a girl who is watching the performance. She is wearing a t-shirt that says, "Korea."
