5 The Hard Way is a collaboration of several young dancers whose mission it is to maintain and perpetuate traditional African culture and to create a supportive, noncompetitive, positive, and nurturing environment for the expression of that culture. At the end of each year, we collaborate with our family of sensational musicians to celebrate the completion of one cycle and to bring in the new year refreshed! The New Year's Eve West African dance marathon is a 6 hour long celebration of back to back dance classes, marketplace, food, amazing music...and YOU! Join us for our 6th anniversary! This year promises to be our best yet!
