BAM celebrates DanceAfrica—the nation’s largest African dance festival—through digital public programming. The series of digital offerings pays special tribute to the people who have shaped the popular festival over the past 42 years.
Offerings include conversations with DanceAfrica creatives and members of the Council of Elders, online dance classes, streams of past performances, the annual FilmAfrica series, and other programs that bring the joy of DanceAfrica into audiences’ homes. And for the first time in its history, the popular DanceAfrica bazaar goes digital with an online marketplace highlighting small businesses offering the finest fashion, food, jewelry, and crafts.
DanceAfrica digital public programming has been specially created in response to the current world environment, with audiences seeking compelling ways to connect with their community and explore the arts from home. BAM’s longest-running and most beloved program is a community celebration, welcoming all to observe. The celebratory events will continue the series of unique digital experiences offered by Love from BAM. Visit BAM.org to join and view a weekly schedule.
