ALMA is a group of professional musicians and dancers bonded in the study, performance and sharing of traditional West African Drum & Dance. ALMA exists to celebrate dance and music, to bring dance and music to everyone, to celebrate the non-traditional artist, and to capitalize on the talents each individual brings to the group, to the stage and to the classroom. ALMA is also dedicated to collaboration; working with other artists to build a larger dance and music community.
ALMA Dance Experience has been a company since 2003, but the core of our group has been working together for more than a decade, and among our group members we have multiple decades of professional experience in a wide variety of music, dance, and performance styles. ALMA is proud to be under the Artistic Direction of Yaya Kabo, internationally acclaimed performer and instructor, originally from Casamance, Senegal. The members of ALMA are committed to artistic excellence through continuous study, performance, and sharing of our art form. ALMA = SOUL Get Involved!
