* Dunaj, which will perform an Austro-Hungarian man's coming-of-age dance and a Polish wedding dance.

* Xochitlpitzahuatl, a Mexican folkloric group that will present "Danza de los Viejitos," a dance depicting old men, and a traditional wedding dance.

* Vaselo Selo, performing a Romanian wedding dance, mothers and babies dances and a Serbian funeral dance.

Tickets are $7 for members and $9 for others. The price includes admission to the "Rites of Passage" exhibit. Reservations are required because of limited seating, center officials said.
