Acknowledgement of ancestors is an integral component of DanceAfrica. The festival begins at the historic Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn with music, dance, and the Council of Elders performing libation ceremonies to honor those who have passed on to the ancestral grounds.

Weeksville Heritage Center is a historic site of great national significance. During the 19th century, the village of Weeksville was a vibrant and independent African American community. The contemporary center includes three historic houses and a new Education and Cultural Arts Building. Visit weeksvillesociety.org for more information.
