About DanceAfrica

The nation’s largest festival dedicated to African dance and music returns to the stages and streets of Brooklyn for its 45th year! We celebrate with five different guest companies from Brooklyn, Harlem, the Bronx, and Washington, DC, each offering a home-grown vision of traditional dances. They bring to the stage movement and musical styles from Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, and the Caribbean, supported by an all-star orchestra created by members of each company.
