Sis. Toni Young offers a class for youth from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The classes provide the foundations of traditional African dance, music, and song. Children learn basic movements associated with African dances. As students advance and commit to an apprenticeship they learn choreography and have various opportunities to showcase their talents. Many Watoto, have grown up under the direction of Sis. Toni, and become Uhuru Dancers, dance instructors, artistic directors, and performers.
The Uhuru Dancers and the Uhuru Family (Mzee, Watoto, Community Drummers) have been closely monitoring news and recommendations from the CDC and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19. Although we hoped to continue our weekly classes of dancing and drumming, the health and wellness of our community is our first priority.
For these reasons, we're excited to inform you that our Saturday classes have moved to a virtual online platform for the month of April. We hope you join us!
The Friday night dance and drum classes for Mzee Uhuru, Watoto Uhuru, and the community drummers have been canceled until the end of May which is in line with the school closings
