This year, 2012, DanceAfrica Pittsburgh features the vibrant and dynamic, artistic excellence of Baba Chuck Davis, the August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble (AWCDE), the Balafon West African Dance Ensemble, Ill Style and Peace Productions (an innovative hip hop influenced dance group), and The Legacy Arts Project. The works of each group weave a tale in the epoch of the African and African American experience. Each performance tells stories of the origins and future of African-inspired dance, moving beyond the confines of the stage, with an energy for the arts that garners great appreciation for history and culture through dance.


Saturday's performance will include the "Keepers of the Flame" Awards, given to Carl Redwood, Linda Imani Barrett and Shabaka Perkins!
