10 Aug Dancing “In These Streets” A Block Party With Free All Day Dance Classes & Performances
Thanks to Open Culture and M&T Bank, as the summer wraps up, Cumbe: Center for African & Diaspora Dance is excited to celebrate life through dance and cultural celebration. We are bringing African and African Diaspora dance to the streets of Brooklyn, giving our community a chance to let loose and dance free.
Attendees can expect to be wowed with dance performances, all day music, dance classes, demonstrations, giveaways and more. All classes and performances are free, but we welcome donations. We hope to see you there.
