Bantaba: The Circle of Celebration
Through a high-energy fusion of percussive dance, traditional music, and rousing call-and-response, the three performers of The Seventh Principle demonstrate both traditional African dance and modern African-American dance while teaching about the respective cultures on both sides of the Atlantic. Students will understand how dance and music are infused into elements of everyday life in West African communities, and how the arts play an important role as an expression of cultural identity. Bantaba: The Circle of Celebration connects students to the history of African dance and culture and celebrates the unique ability the art form has to bring people together around the world.
