The lineup includes Spirit of the Dance, a powerful foot-stomping Irish dance; the popular Zambian Vocal Group made up of different African tribes to form a collective sound; Atahualpa, a rhythmic, musical blend representing different areas of the Andes, bridging the gap between Dollywood and Ecuador; Los Pampas Gauchos, a high-energy show with traditional music, dances and comedy; Veseli Begunjcani, the fun and lively sounds of Bavarian music that showcase a Slovenian Polka party; and more!
