DanceAfrica 2013
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK  •  BAM  •  Ongoing

For three decades BAM’s DanceAfrica festival has been a Memorial Day Weekend tradition in Brooklyn. A lively and diverse blend of African and African-American dance, music, film, and art devoted to preserving traditions and educating new generations, DanceAfrica’s spirit is personified by Founding Elder and Artistic Director Baba Chuck Davis.

For the Memorial Day weekend performance, DanceAfrica 2013 welcomes Umkhathi Theatre Works from Zimbabwe, Giwayen Mata from Atlanta, and Harambee Dance Company from New York, plus Brooklyn’s own BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble.
