Event Details: 

Akwaaba! Welcome to Ghana! Ghanian-American singer, dancer and educator Rita Addico Cohen will join dancers and musicians from the Tidewater African Cultural Alliance for this truly interactive family performance of dance and music straight from Ghana. Dance is a central part of much of Ghanaian life, and is used in different ceremonies to connect communities in a country home to more than 50 languages. Jump up and learn “asa foforo,” a new dance, which will have you singing in Twi and dancing to soul shaking beats.

Event will take place at the Williams Farm Park, outside of the Williams Farm Recreation Center. If there is inclement weather, event will move to inside of the recreation center.

Event is FREE and open to the public. No advanced registration is required. Please email hplate@vbgov.com if you have any questions about this event.
