DanceAfrica Elders

For three days in late February, 1977, the Chuck Davis Dance Company took over the Lepercq space, transforming it into an African village. These three days have been acknowledged as the first iteration of what became known as DanceAfrica. The metaphorical village has expanded into a real community of African dance, which meets annually each spring at BAM. Included in this featured collection are Elders who have helped keep the DanceAfrica tradition moving forward.
