Diamano Coura West African Dance Company is a nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to the preservation, education, and appreciation of traditional West African music, dance, theater, and culture. Join them for this class and learn a traditional West African song and dance movements to live drumming. All ages welcome.

Since its inception in 1975, Diamano Coura, under Director Dr. Zak Diouf and Artistic Director Naomi Washington, has implemented its mission through ongoing workshops, performances, youth programs, touring engagements, lecture demonstrations, community outreach, and creative partnerships with renowned artists and performing companies. The organization strives to portray West African music and dance not simply as forms for entertainment or exhibition, but as means by which communities educate, communicate, organize, and preserve their ancestral past. Diamano Coura, in the Senegalese Wolof language, means “those who bring the message.”
