The Fenix Drum and Dance Company invite the public to join them in a celebration of traditional West African drumming and dancing, Saturday, May 14 at the Artisan Theatre, 1901 Del Paso Blvd in the Uptown Arts District.

Sacramento’s premier African drum and dance troupe will perform “Le Ballet Africain-Américain” at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at the door or by reservation.

The public is encouraged to act fast in purchasing their tickets. The Artisan Theatre was selected to provide the audience with a close up and intimate experience with the drumming and dances of West Africa.

“In order to provide the audience with an authentic experience, we deliberately chose a venue with limited seating. This means no bad seats and people will literally be able to feel the reverberations of the drums and see clearly the high energy moves of the dancers as they perform Le Ballet Africain-Américain,” said producer Angela James.

Choreographer, Olivia Yasmin and drummer, Ross Mele recently returned from a two month stay in Guinea, West Africa where they collected new dances and rhythms.

For reservations, the public may call (916) 205-3970 or e-mail
