LEARN FOR LIFE

African Dance

Damba dance strives to provide a cultural experience that opens minds and hearts to the spirit of Africa. As a music and dance company, Damba celebrates not only the Dagbon tradition of Ghana, but also that of all traditions and backgrounds in which we share the common belief that as human beings, we are all one people. Through this, we celebrate the true spirit of Africa. By singing, dancing, and making music, we make the movement towards “one heart, one people”.  Join Sinbad on a journey to explore West African rhythm and movement through drumming, singing and dancing.
