Soul. Life. Dance! Banner.png


Soul. Life. DANCE! is our culminating event where students will perform choreography learned in our vibrant Dance for Joy series followed by a joyful dance party!  Cumbe encourages students to stand in their unique power and share their talents by performing with fellow students and teaching artists, displaying the creation of their hard work and commitment to learning, dance, culture, community, and themselves.


Happening Sunday, December 10th at the Billie Holiday Theatre, Cumbe Dance for Joy students will kick off the celebration with performances that will take you on an exhilarating dance and rhythm tour of Africa and its diaspora with stops in the Ivory Coast, Haiti, Brazil and the U.S.!


Following our student performance we invite you to stay for the after party fundraiser where you’ll have a chance to hit the dance floor with music by DJ Sabine Blaizin. Get your ticket today and come feel the joy with us at Soul. Life. DANCE!
