Hundreds of dance students better understand the Punjabi-American culture after participating in a two-week camp and performance.

More than 800 kids participated in the event and some even traveled from as far as Canada to perform.

The International Youth Festival is in its eighth year and was held at Roeding Park Saturday afternoon.

The students learned about Bhangra and Gidda dances and learned more about the cultural meaning behind the movements.

"Music is a universal language," dancer Gurdeep Shergill said. "Kids are very excited every year we do it. Every year we have more and more kids."

Participation and entry to both the camp and festival was completely free to all the students.
