Seventh graders get a glimpse of African culture

Bl-OKOTO, a professional African dance company based in Cincinnati, recently performed Ojinga African drumming and dances for seventh graders during their Diversity Day. The lively performance has become an annual tradition in the Middle School.

The company's goal: "We envision a world where individuals, families and communities take pride in their cultural heritage while appreciating the cultural expression of others. Our mission is to preserve, promote and share the rich cultural heritage of Africa and Africans using drums, music, dance, food, languages and other arts."

We will develop responsible global citizens through curricular and co-curricular opportunities that foster the skills, knowledge, and empathy required to engage ethically and successfully in a rapidly changing and interconnected world.
