“There’s nothing like a DanceAfrica performance to send you straight to summer” —The New York Times

This year marks the 35th anniversary of DanceAfrica! Created in 1977 by Chuck Davis, it is the nation’s first festival devoted to African dance and has become one of the largest celebrations of its kind—uniting dancers the world over to celebrate the cultural vitality of Africa and its diaspora. 

DanceAfrica 2012 will feature the BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble together with an expanded lineup of dance companies—a different roster performs each night—in a program that promises to inspire.
