Dance Africa: Pittsburgh is coming back to town

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — You can have fun and learn about different cultures today at the 10th annual Dance Africa: Pittsburgh.

It’s happening now at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA, and tomorrow at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater starting at 3 p.m.

It is filled with community, culture and dance – all centered around the rich arts of the African diaspora.

In addition to demonstrations, there are also classes where you can learn.

“There will be five different classes representing Guinea, Senegal, Cuba and Ghana,” said Erin Perry. Perry serves as executive director of the Legacy Arts Project.

“It’s open to the public. There’s an entry fee, but it’s a great opportunity for people to have an exciting experience of traditional dance, brought directly from the people who represent the cultures they share with us,” Perry added.

The price of classes starts from 25 dollars.
