This year the students will learn and re-create the traditional story and dances that inspired Broadway’s “Lion King” --- the tale of Sunjata Keita, the Lion King who overcame all obstacles to become the founder and leader of the Malian Empire in West Africa.  Students will present a full production of “Sunjata” and show off their amazing new skills at a culminating event on Friday July 20th, 2012.

 

Join us for this incredible journey through where children build new skills, expand cultural understanding, and develop the self-confidence of seasoned performers in an environment that fosters teamwork, creativity, and unity.
