Faces of DanceAfrica

Some people attend the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s annual DanceAfrica festival because they are enjoy the dancing. Others go for the music, films, or the food and crafts that are sold in the African marketplace that is temporarily erected for the duration of the event.

But me, I go to see the people.

They come here to greet summer, to celebrate art and culture, to form a colorful, diverse international community. They come to have a good time, and their excitement and exuberance is contagious. It is, I think, just about impossible to spend time at DanceAfrica without breaking into a grin.
