The nation’s largest festival dedicated to African dance and music returns for its 42nd year, under the leadership of artistic director Abdel R. Salaam. This beloved annual tradition is a jubilant celebration of culture from Africa and its diaspora.
This year, DanceAfrica offers a taste of the rhythm, movement, and spirit of Rwanda. In addition to the performances on the Opera House stage, join us for a full weekend of activities, including an art exhibition, dance workshops, an array of community events, the annual FilmAfrica series, and the one-and-only DanceAfrica Bazaar.
Due to the nature of BAM's programming, children under the age of five are not admitted to BAM live events intended for adults, unless otherwise noted.
