About this show

BAM's longest running performance series--and one of America's largest and most vibrant celebrations of African and African American dance, music, and culture--continues with the 32nd DanceAfrica festival. Created in 1977 to heighten awareness of African culture, the festival has evolved into a positive, high-spirited Memorial Day Weekend tradition that brings together the entire community. Under the artistic direction of Founding Elder Chuck Davis, DanceAfrica 2009 Rhythmic Reflection: African Legacies Revealed features the DanceAfrica debuts of visiting Ghanaian company Tatjj Drama 'N' Dance Ensemble and Washington, DC's Farafina Kan along with the return of the BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble--featuring student performers from BAM's longest running youth program.
