Event description
Communities Rooted in the Movements of the African Diaspora. 7 days of Dance and Cultural Exploration celebrating NOLA’s Cultural Community.

About this Event

Our inaugural festival will focus on the dance, culture, and history of the African diaspora, to understand and unite the cultural communities of African descent that are intimately integrated in New Orleans culture today. This year we will highlight the resilience of the Haitian community - past, present, and future. On September 16-22, 2019, Seasons Center’s Cultural Ties Dance Festival will feature African diaspora dance workshops, a Cultural Dance Showcase and community development panels. We have invited Haitian Dansco of Cap Haitian, Haiti to be our featured International Cultural Arts Ambassadors.
