Funded by the Canadian Red Cross and the Government of Canada, this virtual programming focuses on African dance to empower, educate, and inspire Black youth while providing safe access during COVID-19 restrictions.
This is an opportunity for community organizations to connect Black youth to their roots and identity through a number of African dance styles. It offers a creative outlet, physical activity, and mental wellness that comes with feeling connected to one’s community and peers.
Afiwi Roots & Revival is designed to promote positive self-esteem, confidence, and an active lifestyle, while educating and connecting participants to the arts and culture of the African Diaspora.
COVID-19 has left many feeling isolated. Children and youth have been disconnected from their communities and peers, which has caused stress and anxiety.
The Black community has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and we hope to offer some relief during this time.
Afiwi Roots & Revival is offering free online introductory dance program that will run
January 11- February 17, 2021.
The 45-minute classes will take place on Wednesday evenings during two time slots.
- 5:30 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
- 6:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
We believe in the value and power of African artistic expression and our goal is to provide this opportunity to as many children and youth as possible.
