This group of dancers was formed in 1979 to promote and display Italian cultural traditions using music and dance. The Group has been named after the Appennini Mountain Range, which extends from Northern to Southern Italy. The goals of the group are:
to provide the opportunity to its members to appreciate, learn and preserve the Italian cultural heritage, particularly Italian folk dancing;
to present our Italian folk dancing within the Italian community and the Canadian community at large;
to organize fund-raising activities to cover such costs as costumes, out-of-town performances, workshops and seminars, etc.
