Moving-Party-Homepage-Promo3-1If you haven’t yet heard, the beloved Cumbe Center for African and Diaspora Dance in Fort Greene is moving!

Yes, the building has been purchased and will become condos, and so the popular African dance studio has been forced to find new digs.

They are still looking, but these dancers and drummers refuse to claim defeat. They stay lifted, and this Saturday, they are inviting the Central Brooklyn community out to a moving party!
