Brooklyn, N.Y.—BAM’s longest running performance series, and one of America’s largest and most vibrant celebrations of African and African American dance, music, and culture, continues with the 33rd annual DanceAfrica festival, African Rhythms/American Echoes. Created in 1977 as the nation’s first festival devoted to the rich legacy of African dance, DanceAfrica has evolved into a highly-anticipated and high-spirited Memorial Day Weekend tradition that brings together the entire community. Under the artistic direction of Founding Elder Chuck Davis, DanceAfrica 2010 features the Pamodzi Dance Troupe, from Zambia, Africa, joined by two American companies, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Philadelphia’s Illstyle & Peace Productions. The festival also features the BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble, an annual favorite and a powerful symbol of youth involvement in the preservation of African heritage, performing for the fourteenth straight year.
