“The spirit of DanceAfrica has no boundaries, and will always find its way to the people”
—Artistic Director Baba Abdel R. Salaam

This May, the nation’s largest festival of African dance celebrates the rich movement traditions and culture of Haiti with the theme Vwa zanset yo: y’ap pale, n’ap danse! in Haitian Creole, or “Ancient voices: they speak... we dance!” Join us for a vibrant virtual festival featuring new dance performances, classes, FilmAfrica, a digital DanceAfrica Bazaar, and more. We’ll be announcing more details in the weeks to come, and looking to add live elements to the festival as it becomes safe to do so. But one thing is certain: after 43 years honoring the incredible culture of Africa and its diaspora, DanceAfrica is still going strong.
