Join Wofa Afro Fusion Dance and the Kissidugu Foundation for their annual Merveilles Utah African Dance, Drum and Song Conference! Experience an invigorating three day intensive immersion in Pan – African dance and music with top notch artists from around the globe.
This year, our focus is on creating opportunity for students of diverse populations to experience and gain knowledge in Pan – African culture. We have created a scholarship fund to help support our efforts. You can find our donation information here on our website! Even the smallest donations make a big difference!
Wongai! Let’s Go! Inside the Dance Circle: Is our opening conference dialogue where we discuss the historical and cultural significance of the circle in Africa and in African classes across the globe. We will address the nuances of the relationship between the lead drummer and solo dancer, and share insights on how to negotiate the circle as a new dancer and, even, as a veteran. The masters share their insights on negotiating the circle to connect with spirit and transform the dancer, drummer and community.
