Cross-cultural outreach/Residencies

Eyes light up when Dance of Hope visits schools, local students getting the rare opportunity to connect and interact with children of similar age, coming directly from Africa. The touring young cast members all speak English fluently and are well trained to lead workshops, performances and Q&A sessions.
