We are embarking on a journey through tradition and culture from Boke, Guinea in our production Essence presents "Dance Diaspora Dance III: Tracing Tradition from Boke Guinea." This performance showcases traditional dances that Dance Diaspora has curated over the past 20 years that the group has been traveling to the Gambia to dance with the Guinean community there. Namely we have worked with Alasane Soumak of Fatala and the Jaina Family Dancers. They have shown us so much love and taught us their best over the years. "Dance Diaspora Dance III..." is the third show of a series of shows that have been dedicated to the rhythms, music, and dance from the people of our dear friends from Boke, Guinea.

We hope you can make it!
