Thiossane (pronounced cha- sahn) was formed for the purpose of bringing authentic West African culture representation to a variety of communities locally, nationally and internationally. Thiossane introduces the richness of the culture through dance and music to provide and create a space to learn and grow in traditional African culture.
Our purpose is to introduce, increase, and enhance cultural awareness to better understand and appreciate the richness of the African Diaspora.
Our mission is to preserve and present traditional West African Dance, Music and Culture by providing authentic performances and detailed instruction and to perpetuate its significance to future generations, while creating a lifestyle of physical and mental wellness.
Our senior company and junior company are available for professional presentations, lectures and demonstrations, dance and drum workshops, educational programming, community collaborations, and university enrichment and consulting.
