UT-ARIRANG Korean Traditional Dance Team

The UT-ARIRANG is a Korean traditional folk-dance team consisting of seven amateur Korean female dancers. Mrs. Green organized the team in 2013 with some of her friends to spend precious time with them. The UT-ARIRANG has been presenting about seven performances each year ever since as a team. It’s been a great blessing for each member of the UT-ARIRANG team, building close relationships as friends through dance and promoting the traditional Korean culture to Utah.
