Drums & Dances of Africa
|$0||Free virtual stream|
Featuring Diadie Bathily and Afriky Lolo
Introduce your students to the sounds and movements of West Africa in this high energy education program! Diadie Bathily and Afriky Lolo take audiences on a journey to another culture, with music and dance that celebrate history, nature and community.
Tickets for live, in-person programs are $5 per student. Scholarships may be available to eligible schools.
The Sheldon will continue to offer live-streaming performances of our most popular concerts this season, free of charge to both traditional and home schools, thanks to thanks to the Steward Family Foundation and many other generous donors.
These one-hour performances feature some of St. Louis’ top musicians and educators as well as several nationally acclaimed artists. Students are given the opportunity for a Q&A session with artists at the end of each performance. Teacher handbooks, which include additional educational material and follow-up activities, will be provided to guide teachers for each concert.
For added flexibility, virtual registrants will receive a link to view the live-streamed performances, which will remain available for two weeks following the initial air date. Registration is required.
