At Cumbe, young people, adults, and families alike can 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.
