CFN's Celebrating Diversity April 6th: Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre
On Saturday, April 6th, 2019, CFN invites you to join us at historic Fort Calgary for CFN's 4th Annual Fundraiser: Celebrating Diversity.
This year's big party will once again include YYC legends and party band extraordinaire the Rueben Kincaids, along with amazing cultural performances from Capoeira Cajue Calgary, Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre & Oriental Motion Dance Studios. As a bonus, ticket holders also get full access to the Fort Calgary Museum and all its exhibits. You'll also get some great food, a silent auction you can access online a week prior to the event, a cash bar, plus a few great surprises you won't want to miss, all combined to make up a fun-filled night of entertainment.
One of the highlights of the night for all those in attendance will surely be the Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre performance. Woezo is a dance company based in Calgary passionately dedicated to bringing African culture to a wide audience through traditional and modern African modes of performing arts, including dance, music, theatre and storytelling. Their dancers and choreographers draw from a rich background of dance styles to entertain, inspire and build confidence. Their primary services include workshops and classes in African dance, designed to appeal to individuals from diverse backgrounds, from young children to professional performers. They also host dance performances and festivals, showcasing various contemporary and modern forms of African dance.
Founder and Director Wunmi Idowu is an accomplished dancer, choreographer, instructor, and director, born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. Wunmi began performing at the age of 3, and since moving to Alberta in 1992, has immersed herself in the African dance community, both in Edmonton and Calgary.
Come enjoy Wozoe's amazing performance on April 6th at Fort Calgary and help CFN build community, have fun and most of all, work towards the Calgary we imagine and strive for each day – a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfill their dreams.
