On June 4, School of the Nations hosted its highly anticipated annual Festa Junina. The event attracted a staggering number of attendees, with the participation of more than 2,100 students, parents, staff, alums, and other members of our school community. This vibrant festival showcased the rich traditions of Brazil, bringing together an array of delightful musical performances, fun activities, and irresistible delicacies.
We kicked off this year’s Festa Junina with a dazzling display of talent as students from Early Childhood to High School took to the stage to perform their enchanting dances. The young performers captivated the audience with grace and irresistible energy, displaying the results of their dedication and hard work.
In addition to all the tasty foods, the festival featured a range of traditional Festa Junina activities. Attendees of all ages participated in games such as the fishing game and the ring toss and had a blast kicking goals.
Quadrilhas and Musical Performances
The musical highlight of the evening came courtesy of the acclaimed band “Forró de Feira.” Their lively tunes kept the atmosphere electrified throughout the afternoon and early evening, enticing attendees to join in the traditional dances so emblematic of Festa Junina.
The public also enjoyed the performance of traditional dances by the professional Quadrilha Formiga da Roça. The group took second place for its quadrilha performances in Brasilia in 2022.
Another high point of the evening was the captivating performance by our Parents’ Choir. They showcased their talents with renditions of two traditional songs, “Asa Branca” by the composer Luiz Gonzaga and “Baião de Ninar” by Edino Krieger.
Another memorable moment was our “Seniors Quadrilha,” which marked the last time these talented students would participate on our Festa Junina stage before embarking on their college journeys. Their dedication, commitment, and skill were evident as they flawlessly executed their choreography, leaving the audience in awe.
We sincerely thank every member of our school community who participated in our 2023 Festa Junina. Your presence made the event truly special!
