Our mission is to connect artists and audiences with the human condition of African-Americans to honor the past, celebrate the present and boldly reach into the future, with a riveting, innovative and cutting-edge dance aesthetic.

Our teaching artists deliver interactive lecture-performances and workshops to thousands of young people ages
K-12 to help the youth achieve positive social emotional milestones through creative expression.

Deeply rooted in communities across Brooklyn and beyond, we offer dance theatre programming to children and youth in residential areas deserted by major cultural institutions.



African Advanced

Dances and rhythms of songs in the culture of the West African peoples.


Flexibility and control through the use of isolations, turns, and

progression combinations.

Emphasis on proper body alignment, technique, poise,

and balance.
