Pigeon Forge, TN, USA /BUSINESS WIRE/ — Foot-stomping Celtic rhythms and fast-paced choreography collide as the award-winning “Spirit of the Dance” headlines Dollywood’s 2012 Festival of Nations presented by Humana.
“I just finished a world tour that took me to Europe and Australia, and I was reminded of how much great entertainment other countries have to offer,” Dolly Parton said. “I’m so excited to invite these international performers to share their talents with my Dollywood guests during Festival of Nations this spring.”
