Harford Community College Presents Kaleidoscope of Cultures

 

Join Harford Community College at Kaleidoscope of Cultures on Thursday, November 16, at 6 PM in the Chesapeake Theater to celebrate International Education Week 2017. This event, designed to broaden participants’ global perspective, will feature outstanding performances by culturally diverse artists with free, interactive workshops led by the performers.

 

This year, Kaleidoscope features the Piscataway Nation Singers and Dancers of the Chesapeake and Tidewater regions of Maryland, Baltimore-based NAZU Dance Company, and the Wong People Kung Fu School dancers of Washington, D.C.

 

Carrying on the long standing traditions, culture, and heritage of their indigenous ancestors, the Piscataway Nation Singers and Dancers of the Chesapeake and Tidewater regions of Maryland, present a colorful and entertaining pow wow style event featuring American Indian dance, drum, and song.

 

NAZU Dance Company, West African Dance and Drum ensemble, uses traditional and contemporary forms of West African dance and drumming as a vehicle for cultural expression in efforts to share the cultural richness of West Africa and Ivory Coast.

 

With a centuries-old continuous history, the Lion Dance is an integral part of Chinese culture and Southeast Asian cultures of Vietnam, Korea, Japan, and Malaysia. Highly acclaimed for their skill in bringing to life the legend on which the Lion Dance is based, with energy and excitement, the Wong People Kung Fu School dancers of Washington, D.C., will delight with both music and dance.
