“African Dance is an amazing multi-dimensional healing art form. Traditional African dance develops resilience and flexibility to express our unique power and beauty collectively as spiritual warriors, celebrators, worshippers. We are grateful to African Dance Vermont in Brattleboro for providing the sacred ground for cultivating these qualities” — Marjorie Pivar, director of The Shiatsu School of Vermont.

Kabisko Kaba has lost several family members to Ebola, including his mother. He taught African dance regularly in Brattleboro at one time and now teaches here periodically. He was one of the featured teachers at last year's Abene African Dance & Drum Festival. He also teaches regularly on Thursday evenings in Northampton, Ma. He is an integral member of our African dance community and I urge you to consider offering support to his family. See: http://www.gofundme.com/ektg8k to contribute to this important cause.
