African American Dance Ensemble

About the Artist

The African American Dance Ensemble, founded in 1984 exemplifies their mission by coupling the very best of African dance with a real community-based educational agenda. AADE’s programming generally takes the form of projects that provide teaching or performing venues with expanded artistic techniques and competencies; reach out to underserved or neglected communities and expose audiences to an innovative new art form. AADE encourages interracial cooperation and cross-cultural understanding. To watch a performance of the ensemble is to witness a breathtaking blend of artistry, athleticism, dynamism, and explosive energy. No one who sees a performance remains a mere spectator; audiences share the spirit and accept the moral teachings.

The African American Dance Ensemble provides a variety of performances suited to students K-12, performers range from 5-8 dancers and musicians clad in traditional attire. Each dance and spoke word activity follows and explanation of its origins.
