This February, families are invited to attend the Hershey Public Library’s program Bantaba: The Circle of Celebration, a high-energy fusion of percussive dance, traditional music, and rousing call-and-response.
Three performers of contemporary dance group The Seventh Principle will demonstrate both traditional African dance and modern African-American dance while teaching about the respective cultures on both sides of the Atlantic.
Children will learn 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.
Bantaba: The Circle of Celebration
Saturday, February 11 at 2 p.m.
No registration is required.
