“To see these strong, so very individual women express themselves with a contemporary sensibility rooted in African dance values made you want to see more of what they do.” – SF Bay Guardian
As an experimental performance ensemble, versatile in both Contemporary African and Mainstream African dance styles, Jaara Dance Project captivates audiences with a rare dynamic of modern and traditional. Grounded in the African Diaspora, our exploration of dance pedagogy, and broader themes of our shared humanity is magnified by our multi-cultural dancers and performers.
Jaara Dance continues to build it’s eclectic repertoire under the leadership of Conté-Coomber from its new base in Boston. In addition to collaborating with innovative choreographers and artists, the company also shapes the professional artistry it displays on the concert stage to the safe environment of a classroom through several outreach programs.
