TILT Kids Day culminates with an exuberant dance party celebrating the songs and steps of West Africa. Inspired by La Sape subcultures of West Africa, dancer and choreographer Jean-Paul Mehansio invites kids to put on their best party clothes to cut a rug in an energizing and galvanizing exploration of West African culture. This demonstration—accompanied by live drumming—of African movements in a communal experience of cultural discovery, will teach kids and parents traditional and more contemporary urban dances to driving beats.
