The WOFA DRUM and DANCE COMPANY of The Pioneer Valley Performing Arts (PVPA) Charter School invites you to join us at UNITE, a store that celebrates Diversity, Culture, and Lifestyle in downtown Northampton, on June 14th for a wonderful evening of Drumming and Dancing, a display of West African Artifacts (on loan from the John Hunt Marshall Gallery in Florence), a Photography Exhibit and a streaming of a Student Video! This event will help raise awareness of the company’s presence in the valley,as well as the nature of the performances, exhibitions, and educational workshops that they bring to institutions throughout the state. The company also hopes to raise money at this event for their upcoming trip to Guinea. This educational trip will enable the students, to not only study drum and dance, but immerse themselves in the rich culture of their art form.
