1st Annual

Triangle Dance and Drum Conference


Due to the uncertainty of the Coronavirus and the impact on finalizing the logistics of the TDDC, we have decided to postpone the conference.

We are very excited about bringing this conference to the Triangle area to share West African culture through dance, song and music led by world-class dance and drum instructors, but feel this postponement is in the best interest of everyone involved.

We will share more information about the 2021 conference as details are available.
