Dance the night away and help BME Church

A huge dance party with a ‘soul train’ is set to take over the Old Quebec Street Mall Saturday night.
Dance Off! A Celebration of African Roots begins at 7 p.m. This event is hosted by the Guelph Black Heritage Society to celebrate African and Caribbean dance, drumming, movement and community.
The event will have an assortment of ethnic foods and is fully licensed with a cash bar. Filmmaker and singer Nicole Brooks will act as host and share the history of the Moko Jumbie stilt dancers. The stilt dancers are a popular part of Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. Other entertainment includes Heritage Drummers, Real3D’s African and hip-hop dances and the African-Caribbean Antilles Dance Troupe. Proceeds from this event will support “Heritage Hall” at 83 Essex St. The former BME Church serves as a hub for inclusive, intergenerational community events and can be rented out.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for youth, while kids younger than five are free. Tickets can be purchased at the SheaButterMan Shoppe at Old Quebec Street.
For more information, contact or 519-837-2519.
