This evening of dance with Estelle Lavoie features an introductory workshop on the dances of West Africa, followed by some time on the dance floor, where you will sway to the rhythms of the group Taafé Fanga.

Estelle Lavoie will share her passion for West African rhythms and dance, while Taafé Fanga will get you moving to the sounds of its djembes and dununs, each imparting their own energy, all brought together through music!

Two performances will take place during the evening; the first at 7:00 p.m. and the second at 8:45 p.m.
