Dancing Stories with April C. Turner

Museum of the Cape Fear

10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

From Turner’s performance the audience learns how West African dances and stories affirm community-building concepts of working together, integrity, and perseverance.

“The meanings and uses of the songs and dances are demonstrated in a fun, high-energy, inspiring journey,” says Turner, who also works as a film and TV actress. The audience will have fun when the language Wolof, a West African language, is introduced to them. “Dancing Stories explores African folklore and demonstrates ways that African stories can bring a community together,” concludes Turner. To add to her credits, Turner recently appeared with Michelle Dockery in the TNT drama, Good Behavior.

Together with the audience, Turner will explore the language of African dance symbols. At the end of the presentation, audience members are invited to participate in playing musical instruments as a community. The program is a well-rounded cultural experience focusing on the strength of art to inspire, unite and educate.
