Dance and Drums of Africa presents West African and Caribbean music and dance of the highest caliber. Featuring drumming protégés of the late Chief Bey – legendary West African master drummer – and a team of extraordinary dancers. Complete with beautiful costumes, extraordinary music, choreography, and narration.

DeWitt Flemming & Friends present "Jazz and Tap: A Perfect Friendship". This lecture/dem discusses and demonstrates the similarities of the history of tap and jazz. The presentation focuses on the complementary aspects of the music and dance. In a sense, the concept reinforces the elements of sharing, and friendship – as well as how instruments (including the feet) communicate with each other. The presentation incorporates the African drum idea of “Call and Response” which elicits strong audience participation. It will also touch on musical elements including: a bar of music, musical notes and the importance of the count. Finally, jazz instrumentation will be discussed with the tap shoe as an instrument. Students will be encouraged to participate playing percussion instruments -some joining the performers, onstage.

Féraba: African Rhythm Tap Dance Co.As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to community outreach, Féraba offers master classes, workshops and artistic residencies in schools, colleges, dance studios, community centers, and libraries.

They have conducted staff developments for teachers, and are familiar with the Blueprint educational standards. Each program is custom designed to meet the needs of your organization.
