The Hudson County Schools of Technology’s Music and Audio Technology Department will host two performances by the Kofago Dance Ensemble. The performances will be held in the Earl W. Byrd Center Theatre at County Prep High School in Jersey City on Friday, November 18th at 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM.
Kofago’s founder and artistic director Kevin McEwen has been serving communities in the United States and the global diaspora for over twenty years. The company’s dance repertoire pulls heavily from McEwen’s 20-plus years of West African dance experience. The ensemble prepares their performances with a deep traditional foundation and includes traditional dances from West Africa, Caribbean dance forms as well as modern pieces based on West African and Caribbean principles of movement and space.
This Performance was made possible through the Hudson County Arts in Education (AIE) 2022-23 Program Grant which is fully funded by Hudson County.
