The Shiatsu School of Vermont is a sponsor of African Dance Vermont!
“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.

Please see Georgette Adjie's fundraising campaign to Save the Baka Tribe and Cameroon's Land and Culture: http://www.gofundme.com/preview These people helped to heal Georgette's leg after a serious accident and have given her the gift of walking and dancing. We are very blessed to have Georgette to learn from. If you feel moved to support this important cause that can make a difference to keeping alive the natural medicines and way of life of these skilled, creative and spiritual indigenous people, please be as generous as you are able to be.
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.
