DC’s 21st annual festival celebrates the dance and music of the African Diaspora while honoring traditional heritage and its transformation into contemporary forms. The vitality and richness of African culture is experienced through dance, music, visual arts, food, clothing and crafts. Through master classes, outreach to school children, a performance series and an African Marketplace, DanceAfrica, DC promotes a greater understanding of African culture and illuminates its importance to this city and the nation. The festival is hosted by artistic director and festival Griot, Chuck Davis.
Supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, Target and the many foundations that support Dance Place/Next Generation Programs. Co-presented with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
