West African Dance Community Workshop

February 20, 2022

Jacob’s Pillow presents dancer, storyteller, and drummer Iddrisu Saaka for an exciting workshop exploring Ghanaian culture through movement and storytelling. Families and participants of all ages are invited to learn the Kpatsa, a traditional recreational dance from the southern part of Ghana, and hear about its cultural background and role in modern Ghana. We ask that all participants please observe our COVID-19 policies.

All are welcome, open to all levels, no prior experience needed, wear comfortable clothing to move in.

*Please note that this workshop is in-person. However, due to the continually shifting landscape of COVID-19 in our community, this workshop may shift to a Zoom virtual event in an effort to ensure our collective health and safety. Participants will be notified promptly via email regarding any changes to this workshop.

Part of Love Pittsfield’s 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival | In partnership with the NAACP Berkshire County Branch and The Town of Great Barrington W.E.B. Du Bois Legacy Festival
