"There’s nothing like a DanceAfrica performance to send you straight to summer."
—The New York Times

This year marks the 35th anniversary of DanceAfrica! Created in 1977 by Chuck Davis, it is the nation's first festival devoted to African dance and has become one of the largest celebrations of its kind. Uniting dancers the world over to celebrate the cultural vitality of Africa and its diaspora, BAM will welcome a visiting company from Africa as well as American companies-including Brooklyn's very own BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble-for a special anniversary program that promises to inspire.

A Memorial Day weekend tradition, DanceAfrica is packed with dance, music, art, film, and community events-plus the one-and-only DanceAfrica outdoor bazaar. Agoo! Amee!
