Artist Bio

The Seventh Principle is a one-of-a-kind contemporary dance company that The Star Ledger calls headed for success…a fresh take on African culture in a modem world.

The company’s main objective is to heighten awareness of African dance and culture through creative expression of this unique art form.  In addition to their focus on African dance in contemporary culture, The Seventh Principle also addresses current themes that reflect the role of an “African in America.”  The power of the number “7” is present throughout Africa in astrology, numerology, mythology and custom.

The company name comes from Kwanzaa, a celebration of African heritage and values that includes seven principles as a system for daily living.
