Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Music and dancing fill the Binghamton Riverwalk Hotel for a celebration of community diversity.

The American Civic Association hosted their annual All Nations Ball Saturday evening.

The ACA Executive Director said the fundraiser is an important event for the Southern Tier because it brings the community together and opens eyes to hidden talents.

This year, India was picked to act as the host country. The ACA teamed up with the India Cultural Center.

Special performances had audience members on the edge of their seats.

"What we are trying to do is share the diversity of the community and we were lucky this year to have India Cultural Center participate with us," Executive Director Andrew Baranoski said. "This is something you're not going to see at many venues."

After the entertainment, an international dinner was served.
