Tounkande - February 2019

 BLACK HISTORY MONTH EXCLUSIVE!

Ballet Creole – known as the Forerunner of Blacks in Dance, is proud to present this special presentation featuring dance and music of Guinea West Africa entitled “TOUNKANDE” in honour of Black History Month in Canada. Available only for the month of February!

A unique and creative collaborative creation between Patrick Parson (Ballet Creole, Artistic/Executive Director) and West African Master Drummers, this project brings together song, dance and rhythms of Guinea, West Africa. This work celebrates the rich cultural heritage of the Malinke people and shares the importance of connecting the social and historical understanding of their traditions as it links with the present.

Let the Traditional African rhythms and the athletic and exhilarating dancers of Ballet Creole create a presentation of history, education and entertainment at its highest level.
