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.
