Uganda Dance Troupe
About Uganda Dance Troupe
The Uganda Dance Troupe presents riveting programs of music and dance for audiences of all ages complemented by outstanding residency programs.
To the melodic tones of standing drums, with dramatic choreography, bright, layered rhythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals, a vibrant cast of 22 performers, ages 8-18, oscillates between ferocity and softness as they bring to life the sounds and movements of East Africa. Ambassadors for Uganda’s 2.4 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africa’s next generation as they promote awareness of Uganda’s dual crises of AIDS and civil war, and raise funds to support themselves and others in their homeland.
