African dance is polycentric,
which sets it apart from most other dance traditions in the world. African dance has
transformed over the decades. The traditional African dance is gradually making way
more modern dance moves. African Dance LA in its 2 nd year of productions aims to be
the largest African dance competition with a focus on the art of contemporary African
dance. This event is in recognition of our youth’s efforts to promote and preserve African
culture through dance and other art forms.
