The South African cast of the touring production UMOJA stopped by The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center summer youth dance day camp for a dance and drum workshop last Friday, July 19.
“This is a great opportunity to expose our youth to different cultures,” says Atlanta Area Commander Todd Hawks. “Our kids are excited to dance with and learn from a professional performing dance company. Just another way The Salvation Army is showing our youth there are many ways to positively express themselves.”
AFRICA UMOJA is a loud, colorful, and jubilant celebration of life that audiences – whatever their cultural backgrounds – have found infectiously delightful and uplifting. The 40-piece cast made up from a myriad of South African cultures has its own touching story to tell.
