The KowTeff School of African Dance is a non-profit organization with the mission of preserving and perpetuating the diverse folklore of African peoples through quality education and entertainment. The
KowTeff School of African Dance artistically and creatively uses dance,
music (song and drum), and the spoken word to keep alive the cultural
values, principles, and customs of African tradition. We are committed
to excellence and integrity in
the training of dancers and musicians, the dissemination of knowledge
related to African, Caribbean, and African American history and cultural
art forms, the delivery of performances that celebrate such art forms,
and the development of community-based programs that utilize the cultural arts to uplift people of African descent.
The KowTeff School of African Dance ultimately strives to empower people of African descent by providing
inspiring opportunities for them to celebrate and gain knowledge of
their rich African heritage, develop a positive cultural identity and
self-pride, and reclaim traditional African values and customs that
promote healthy development of body, mind, spirit, and community.
