Organizer Cumbe: Center For African And Diaspora Dance
Join us at Cumbe for a special Mother’s Day dance experience of North Africa’s traditional dances, Moroccan Chaabi. Chaabi means ‘of people’ and represents the spirit of the people, especially women. This celebratory dance has elements of both West African and Arabic dance and is commonly practiced in inter-generational spaces as a conversation’ between women. A true embodiment of North African femininity, Chaabi is body-positive, high-energy and is a frenzy of fun. Join us solo, with your mother, daughter, sister, neighbor or friend and let’s build community through dance!
