Event Description

COMPAS Teaching Artists Afoutayi Dance, Music and Arts company produces high quality events dedicated to promoting knowledge and understanding of Haitian culture, history and traditional arts. Dance connects the Haitian people to their spiritual and cultural heritage, having been passed down through lineages of African and Indigenous ancestry. This hour-long performance is a vibrant educational tool filled with dance, music, drumming, storytelling and history and presents Haitian cultural heritage with songs in Creole and French languages with live drumming accompaniment. Participants will learn about Haitian culture through dance as the dancers engage in a playful, spontaneous interchange with the audience.
Feel free to bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket; we will have some to share. In case of inclement weather, the event will happen in the Library’s meeting room
This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACFH) and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the ACHF.
