The Institute of Music & Dance and the Marygrove Dance Department worked together to facilitate and host an African Dance Conference, by the Rowe Niodior African Dance Company, who received funding from the Knight Foundation for the four day event.
Master classes were held September 24 – 27, 2015, in different styles of African dance, and a performance was featured in the Marygrove College Theatre on Saturday, September 26. IMD students, undergraduate dance students as well as metropolitan Detroit and out-of-state dance communities attended. All were inspired and energized by the teachers, drummers and choreography.
