Join us for free community dance workshops learning salsa choque with Afro-Colombian dance troupe Sankofa Danzafro. On March 2, Sankofa Danzafro will host a dance workshop at the Highlander Accelerator. On March 3, the dance workshop will be held at Bancroft Street Market. 

Sankofa Danzafro seeks to build a bridge between Afro-Colombian peoples and the African continent. The company uses Afro-Colombian’s ancestral roots in the creation of dance works. “Sankofa”, meaning, “to return to the root”, is an African philosophy that proposes that the past is a keyhole through which to view the present, and to be able to consider the future. Sankofa Danzafro will perform at the Orpheum Theater on Friday, March 4 at 7:30 PM. Purchase tickets here for their performance “Accommodating Lie,” a full-length work by Rafael Palacios which seeks to dismantle stereotypes and beliefs about and around the black body and what it means to be of African descent.
