Keur Khaleyi 4rd Annual Showcase "KHAWARE - Let's Party"
Keur Khaleyi African Dance Company Presents
KHAWARE - "Let's Party"
In Senegal, when people come together for a family reunion or large party, it’s called KHAWARE. A celebration! A reunion! A party!
Keur Khaleyi African Dance Company turns 4!
For our 4th annual showcase, we are celebrating KHAWARE on July 5th, 2014 at The James Weldon Johnson Auditorium on the campus of Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland. We are currently raising funds for costumes for our teen dancers and other production costs. Keur Khaleyi, (pronounced Hah-lay-ye), means house of the children --we prioritize the transfer of our shared African cultural legacy to young people of all backgrounds. Community classes for children, teens and adults focus on conveying the traditional songs, rhythms and movements of the dances.
Your donations keep our company and community programs going and specifically support the construction of costumes for our teen company members, traditional costumes for our young drummers, payment for musicians and production costs for lighting and sound tech for this performance.
