This international dance group practices in the back of a local coffee shop - in a city that prides itself as being sophisticated and historic.
在这个发达、悠久的自豪城市,这支国际舞蹈团正在当地一家咖啡店后排练。

The dances are from countries like Russia or Turkey, nations a U.S. secretary of state might visit.

Sue Chase is with the Charlottesville International Folk Dancers. She says they reach out to other countries through their dance.
Sue Chase是夏洛茨维尔国际民间舞蹈团成员,她说他们通过舞蹈与其他国家进行交流。

“We choose to see that as a peaceful process, to enhance world peace and peace between countries and cultures," said Chase. "I can only say I hope John Kerry sees it [the world] that way too.”
“我们将这看做和平的过程,来改善国家和文化之间的世界和平。我认为约翰·克里也希望世界是这样的。”

Secretary Kerry will speak just down the road from C'ville Coffee, at the University of Virginia.

Maintenance workers at the university are straining to remove seats to make way for the TV cameras.

这些座位近20年没有换过地方了,但这所大学的历史比这还要悠久,它是19世纪早期由美国第三位总统兼《独立宣言》的作者成立并设计。
