Dance Motion USA Program Connects with Ivoirian Youth through Dance

Workshop at INSAAC

Through the support of DanceMotion USA and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Public Affairs Section hosted New York City-based dance group, Keigwin + Company, for 9 days in Cote d’Ivoire to broadly disseminate messages of peace, unity and social cohesion through dance programming and workshops.

During their stay in Cote d’Ivoire, the group interacted with hundreds of youth, performing, teaching, leading workshops and dancing together with fellow artists in Bouake and Abidjan. During the program in Cote d’Ivoire, the 11-person dance company also conducted workshops on dance choreography, technical and production management, and a round table discussion on arts management.
