Community Education Center presents DanceAfrica Philadelphia
Media relations campaign for four-day festival of African dance, music, visual art, shopping and wellness
Promoting the preservation of African dance and culture, West Philadelphia’s Community Education Center (CEC) presents the first-ever DanceAfrica Philadelphia, a local adaptation of the long-running Brooklyn Academy of Music annual festival. Combining live traditional and contemporary dance, music, workshops, visual art and an African market, DanceAfrica Philadelphia uses the umbrella title “Our African Legacy: Treasured Reflections” to encourage community-building among people of African descent and members of all ethnicities. DanceAfrica Philadelphia, a partnership with Drexel University made possible through funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, runs November 6-9, 2013 at various locations throughout West Philadelphia.
Canary Promotion is providing full-service media relations for the four-day festival, including live dance performances of traditional and modern African dance from November 8 to 9 on Drexel University’s main stage.
