You’re Invited!

Sunday, May 16, 2021 at 5:30 pm “A Tribute to Traditions” is a performance message conveying why heritage, customs and traditions remain relevant as we navigate perpetual shifts in the world.  As ambassadors of the richness of African culture and the facilitators of techniques and choreography, we have created an educational and entertaining experience for all people.

In addition to being an awesome workout, the live drumming, the excellent instruction, the pristine performance space, and–more than anything else–the kindness of the people makes for a wonderful experience.
