Distant Learning from Dance Diaspora

-A A +A
By Stephen Thomas

Bullitt Central students received a hands-on history and cultural lesson from Dance Diaspora.


Based at Oberlin College in Ohio, the Dance Diaspora ensemble presents Western African cultural traditions through music and dance.

Dance Diaspora incorporates diverse musical and dance themes ranging from American styles of Blues, Jazz and Hip Hop to African, Brazilian and Caribbean.

Traditional Western African songs and instruments are implemented into the presentations, which meet the Kentucky Core Content curriculum requirements.
