On Sunday, the Brooklyn Arts Council presents a free marathon of folk dance featuring the borough’s own nimble artists. For four hours, dancers will move across Brooklyn College’s Whitman Theater stage; among the dozen pieces on the program will be Panamanian social dances such as the "cumbia" and "punta" by Conjunto Nuevo Milenio (pictured); Brooklyn uprocking by Ralph Casanova a.k.a. "King Uprock"; West African stilt-walking with Vado Diomande; and Israeli folk dance by Paraparim.

Audience members who find the performances inspiring can learn the tricks of the trade at free "Folk Feet Dance Workshops" - featuring Puerto Rican bomba, American square dance, Ivory Coast dance and Polish American folk dance - at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central branch in Grand Army Plaza on March 5, from 1 to 5 pm.

Brooklyn Arts Council’s "Folk Feet: Celebrating Traditional Dance in Brooklyn" will be performed on Feb. 26, from 2 to 6 pm, at Brooklyn College’s Whitman Theater (one block from the junction of Flatbush and Nostrand avenues in Midwood). For information, call (718) 625-0080 or visit the Web site at
