Lesole’s Dance Project: Dancing through South Africa

Thursday, February 15, 2018

The Publick Playhouse is pleased to present the GEICO Gecko Series, a series of midweek matinees for youth generously supported by the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. GEICO Gecko Series matinees are free to qualifying Title 1 schools, giving young people the opportunity to experience outstanding performances at the Publick Playhouse. Educators, look for the GEICO Gecko that identifies the performances, and call Group Sales at 301-277-1710 to reserve your space.

Explore South Africa when Lesolé Dance takes you on an incredible journey emphasizing the role that dance plays in encouraging people in difficult times, and in promoting a deeper understanding and acceptance among people of different backgrounds and traditions. Traditional Zulu; Gumboot, which originated in the gold mines during Apartheid; and Pantsula, a modern social/hip-hop dance form are all part of this fascinating program. 

Curriculum Connections: Dance, Music, Social Studies, Language Arts, World Languages
