HCAC Spring Concert: Sankofa Dance Theater
Sankofa Dance Theater will perform in a Hampshire County Arts Council Spring Concert on Saturday, April 20, at 7:30PM at The Bottling Works, 426 E. Main Street in Romney, WV.
Baltimore-based Sankofa Dance Theater is a national performing company
established in 1989 by Kauna Mujamal and Kibibi Ajanku, to promote authentic African art forms through dance, music, folklore and crafts. Sankofa’s focus on traditional African art forms is rooted in the definition of the word “Sankofa” which means to learn from the past to build for the future. Sankofa Dance Theater reaches back in the rich legacy of African culture and history to move forward in the greater intercultural awareness for the global community.
Sankofa’s performances incorporate exuberant dance with exciting drumming and storytelling of the members’ African heritage. Audience members are invariably wowed by Sankofa performances.
Admission is $14 ($12 for HCAC members and under 17 free.) Advance tickets may be purchased online at http://www.HampshireArts.org/tickets.html or at the Hampshire County Visitor Center in Taggart Hall, 91 S. High St., Thursday through Saturday 9AM to 4PM.
This concert is sponsored by members Bonni and Gary Long and Patricia Taylor, and FNB Romney and presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
