Kofago Dance Ensemble, in partnership with The Kofago Institute and Rhythm N Dance Incorporated, proudly announces the return of the KASSOUMAII Gala. This year’s fundraising event will take place on Saturday, June 22nd, at the Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz Cultural Center in Harlem, NY.

Building on the success of last year’s gala, the evening promises to be an unforgettable experience, celebrating the ensemble’s continued commitment to cultural preservation and community empowerment through the arts. KASSOUMAII Gala 2024 will feature electrifying performances, including the newest choreography from the talented artists of the Kofago Dance Ensemble.

The event also marks a collaboration that bridges the gap between performance and education, bringing African Diaspora culture to the forefront. Attendees can look forward to a night of dance, music, and cultural expression that not only entertains but also educates and inspires.

As Kofago continues to serve the community and promote African Diaspora culture, support from sponsors, community members, and art enthusiasts is more vital than ever. This gala is a chance for all who share in the vision to contribute to a future where dance serves as a healing modality and a beacon of cultural pride.

Join us as we celebrate and support the arts – your presence will contribute to the lasting impact of the Kofago Dance Ensemble and its allied organizations.
