Ase African and Diasporic Dance and Drum

Ase African and Diasporic Dance and Drum Program, a partnership between The Re-Education Project and Dance Afrikana, is an after-school program offered to Houston area schools and organizations. The program explores the diverse dance and music traditions from Africa and its Diaspora. Students will learn polyrhythms, polymovements, groundedness, isolations, polycentrism, and improvisational practices, while gaining knowledge about the history and culture from which these traditions emerge and the influences they’ve had on other artistic forms.
