Juan Antonio Urbeltz, a leading voice in the world of Basque dance and culture, will present "A Peoples' Story in Dance" at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Bishop Barnwell Room, Boise State University Student Union. The event is free and open to the public.

In his multimedia presentation, Urbeltz will elaborate on his theory as to the origins of Basque dance and the ongoing role played by dance in Basque culture.

Urbeltz's theory about the origin of many Basque dances extends well beyond the Basque realm calling into question the established paradigms of European folklore. He asserts that the folk dances of many European cultures share common elements that can be traced to the earliest farming peoples during the Neolithic period. His presentations will be a unique opportunity for those interested in both Basque dance and culture to hear how a people's story can be told through their dances.

The lecture is sponsored by the Basque government, in cooperation with the North American Basque Organization and Boise State's Basque Studies program.
