Fenix Taking a December Break

Hello Fenix friends and family. We are taking a well-deserved break this December. Classes will resume January 8. See our "Classes" page for dates and times. We will also have classes again at the Davis Art Center, this next term will be on THURSDAYS, beginning Feb 3. Make sure to register at the Davis Art Center website or in person!

So in the meantime, check out one of our summer performances at Fairytale Town!


    Fenix is gearing up for a busy month of performances for Black History Month. Presented at ten Sacramento Public Branch libraries, these family oriented programs uses music, dance and narrative to highlight the richness of the African-American artistic experience.

    Programs include Fenix' signature programs "From Africa to the Americas", a lively interactive medley of dancing, drumming and folktales and "Dance and Drum for Joy", a drum and dance circle that keeps everyone tapping their toes.

    "BlackScrap Music" gives the audience to play the diddley bow, spoons and other musical instruments fashioned from everyday materials by African-Americans.

    Drums and a display of indigo dyed fabrics enhance the fascinating stories of indigo dye - from the 'blue men' of Africa to the blue jeans of today in "Indigo Blue".
    For a list of programs and locations, please go the the Events tab.

  2. Looks like a really fun event, especially for children. Although I do need to understand what Kwanzaa actually is. Making them free to the public will also encourage more people to take part in it.
