For hundreds of years, African culture has had an influence on dance and music around the world. One example of this is the Ballet Creole dance company in Toronto, Canada. This dance groups combines the dance and music of the Caribbean and Africa, and performs them in a contemporary style. The Company was founded in the 90’s, and still performs around Canada with their team of professional dancers and musicians. With a philosophy like “Harmony in Diversity Creates a New Energy”, viewers are introduced to the world of drums, rhythms and communication in a way they would have never imaged, dance.
