The Laini Kuumba Ngoma Troupe, was my very first experience with dance and culture. It was a life changing experience. Everything they have ever taught me is still in my heart today. The African culture I learn while attending classes and as a performer really helped me to be the person I am today. I am going to participate in upcoming community projects and preparing to audition to be apart of the dance company. Laini Kuumba Ngoma Troupe is a really great organization to be a part of.
I took a class and enjoyed myself so much I set up a workshop for my Women's Day Program. The Women enjoyed the workshop so much we then set up a community exercise class for six weeks. We cannot afford to pay what it is worth and the value that you get from Laini Kuumba/Sis Rfuaw.
LKNT is a great cultural group that brings a great gift to the community. Helping children to build self confidence while focusing on mind, body and spirit. LKNT Is a vital part of the much needed Arts community and without them we would be missing out on an important part of our African heritage. I have known this group since I was a teenager and as an adult I am proud that I can introduce my own kids to this wonderful experience.
I hired this dance troupe to perform and host a week long dance & drumming workshop at my school and they did an awesome job. They were very engaging and professional. I give them 10 Thumbs Up, the students are still talking about that week and singing the songs they learned. We are planning to bring them back next year.
I started going to Laini Kuumba Ngoma Troupe's dance classes when I was very young age 3 to be exact and lost contact with them after Hurricane Katrina. They helped me to change my life from worst to better. I recently reconnected with them.. I am hoping to start dancing with them in 2014. I love them..
