About: “Cumbe seeks to create a community of people who love music and dance Cumbe is the new home for African and diaspora dance in Brooklyn, bringing together – under one roof – classes and cultural education for dances from Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean.
At Cumbe, young people, adults and families alike will immerse themselves in the joy and vitality of music and dance from Africa, the Americas and Caribbean. Through a rich array of classes and dynamic teachers, students from novice to the experienced will learn the rhythms and movements of Senegal, Guinea, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Haiti and a broad range of other cultures. Performances, talks, and dance parties will encourage a deeper understanding of the origins, meaning and evolution of these many dances, as well as connections between them. Marking life moments big and small, joyous and fierce, dances from Africa and countries nourished and inspired by African traditions bring tremendous spirit to our modern lives. Through dance and music, Cumbe will create a community that celebrates exuberance, sensuality, power and laughter!” ~ Cumbe Dance Center
I’m hoping to make it to the dance party after work on Saturday and to try out a dance class on Sunday morning before attending the Chocolate Sauce Books event. Hope to see you there!
Love AGT :)
