About DanceAfrica

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.
