Bantaba: The Circle of Celebration
Celebrate the unique ability of dance to bring people together around the world with The Seventh Principle. Through a high-energy fusion of percussive dance, traditional music, and call-and-response, this program demonstrates both traditional West African 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.
