YORK, Pa. — Nazu African Dance will take to the stage at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13, when Penn State York’s free cultural series continues in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) on campus. No tickets are needed for this performance sponsored by the Penn State York Student Affairs Office.
A Baltimore-based West African dance and drum ensemble, Nazu African Dance is under the artistic direction of Nai Zou Oivier. Oivier uses traditional and contemporary forms of West African dance and drum as a vehicle for cultural expression and a medium for personal healing.
Members of Nazu and Company represent a cross-section where experienced professional dancers and drummers join beginners in an effort to share the cultural richness of West Africa and the Ivory Coast.
Mark your calendar for 7 p.m. April 5 when the series continues with Marcia Boyese and Roger Latzgo, and a tribute to Hans Christian Andersen.
