Frostburg State University’s Live! at the Loft, sponsored by the University Programming Council, will feature the Sankofa Dance Theater in the Lane University Center’s Derezinski Lounge on Friday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.
The Sankofa Dance Theater was started in 1989 as a Baltimore-based Cultural Arts organization. “Sankofa” means “reaching back … to move forward,” an expression evolving out of the need for a community focused on promoting authentic African art forms as vehicles for cultural expression. By “reaching back” into the rich legacy of African culture and history, the Sankofa Dance Theater hopes to create an exciting program of traditional dance, music and folklore. The company’s performers have been praised as exuberant dancers and percussionists receiving acclaim from the Baltimore/Washington Metro area and in West Africa.
