MIAMI – Traditional dances depicting the cultures of Africa, Native America, France and Spain will be the highlight of an “Evening of Authentic Haitian Folk Dances” to be presented on Saturday, December 1, at 8p.m., at the Julius Littman Performing Arts Theater, 17011 NE 19th Ave., North Miami Beach.
The Louinès Louinis Haitian Dance Theatre continues its efforts to educate the community and enhance awareness of Haitian culture through artistic dance movements and music.
“Haitian dance expresses a unified mix of various cultures that have all been overwhelmingly influenced by Africa,” says Lucrece Louisdhon-Louinis, assistant dance theatre director. “At the center of this celebration will be the magic drum, a symbol of immortal Africa and an important part of the Haitian cultural tradition, depicting the rhythm of life.”
This program is supported in part by the Julius Littman Performing Arts Theater and partially funded by the O’Chan Cultural Center, Inc.
