Swahili Arts - Music and Dance
Swahili Arts – Music and Dance
June 20
1:30–3:30 p.m.

Get ready to dance with artist, actress, poet, and performer Ana Mwalagho! East Africa’s coast has been a vibrant arena of global cultural convergence for over a millennium. Its location on the Indian Ocean has brought together people from the Arabian Peninsula, Asia, Africa, and Europe to form something unique: Swahili, or WaSwahili, culture. Join us for a workshop featuring the incredible, diverse music and dance of the Swahili coast. Come prepared to move!

This workshop is presented as part of the museum’s series of Workshop Wednesdays. Every first Wednesday of the month, stop by the museum for drop-in classes from trained teachers. Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. No registration is required, but please remember that these events are first-come, first-served. Visit here for a full list of upcoming workshops.

Free and open to the public.
