Sheridan residents could sample foods from 10 countries, listen to a mixed culture of music, and learn to dance and make origami at Sheridan College on Friday night.

From 5 until 7, the college celebrated the annual Festival of Cultures in the new Thorne-Rider Campus Center.

Elizabeth DeGrandpre, who is the college coordinator of campus life, said the event is a great opportunity for the community.

The duo from Japan were Kat McDowell and her husband, Masaki Kusumori, and they were followed by Step Afrika, a percussive dance company based in Washington D.C. A member of the company engaged the audience in the performance.

The company promotes stepping as an educational tool for young people, and following the performance, the group held workshops for members of the audience.
