In this program, students will learn about the country of Cote D'Ivoire and the greater region of West Africa. They will study under our professional artists. Our diaspora includes traditional performances with live drummers and dancers, who bring knowledge of both Cote D’Ivoire and the continent as a whole. Student will then answer a few questions and have the opportunity to be on stage with us. The fun part is the performing of our wonderful teachers in front of their students.They love this.
