Artistic Director Chuck Davis and Artistic Director Designate Abdel R. Salaam

This year DanceAfrica traces the transatlantic roots of Brazil's music and dance traditions, welcoming Balé Folclórico da Bahia to the BAM stage. The 38-member troupe of dancers, musicians, and singers performs a repertory based on Bahian folkloric dances of African origin: slave dances, capoeira, and samba.
