Dance Workshops, Panel Discussions, Cultural Performances, and Community Engagement.

Cultural Ties Dance Festival is funded through sponsorships from community organizations and community members like you. We share the passion for the history, culture, and movement of the African Diaspora as it is deeply rooted in the cultural make-up of New Orleans. Your donation towards the 2021 Cultural Ties Dance Festival will be applied towards the professional performing artists who are instructing and also in support of the dance scholarships offered for the youth dance intensive.  Collectively the festival is a unique experience for individuals to celebrate NOLA’s Cultural Communities through dance. This year’s festival will provide dance classes for adults and children, a 4 Day Youth Dance Intensive, exhibits, dance concerts, various workshops, lectures, and more.
