Del Mar Foundation brings Carnaval spirit to children

The Del Mar Powerhouse was filled with the sights and sounds of the traditional folkloric dances and rhythms of Brazil on Feb. 21 during a cultural event sponsored by the Children’s Committee of the Del Mar Foundation.

Nós de Chita, a group promoting Brazil, is part of Young Audiences, the oldest and largest nonprofit organization for arts education in San Diego County. The troupe of four Brazilian women took its young audience on an imaginary trip throughout Brazil by talking about the history of the country, playing musical instruments, dancing, explaining the origin of their costumes, and teaching the children to count in Portuguese.

By the end of the concert, the children were dancing in the aisles.

The next event of the Children’s Committee is the annual Easter Egg Hunt, at 11 a.m. April 3 in Seagrove Park. Residents of the 92014 ZIP code (photo ID at check-in) can register for this free event beginning March 5. If space is available, nonresidents can register beginning on March 26. Details at
