Families enjoy an interactive workshop and performance at Flushing Town Hall when Vado Dimoande and the Kotchegna Dance Company comes to town on Dec. 9.

Participants follow master dancer Vado Dimoande as he calls out the rhythm that accompanies the movement, featuring live drumming in this interactive workshop. The lesson culminates with participants invited to do “solo” steps — improvised movements — to show their appreciation to the drummers and the rhythms that have inspired the dance.

Then families are treated to a performance by Dimoande and the Company. The performance is sure to delight, teach, and inspire audiences with the joyful dances of the Ivory Coast. Colorful clothing, exuberant song, vibrant dancing, and the exciting rhythms of djembe and doundoun drums will sweep the audience into a powerful experience of West African village life, with dancing, a call-and-response, drum solos, and a finale with audience participation.

Vado Dimoande and the Kotchegna Dance Company; workshop, Dec. 9 at 1 pm; $7; $4 children; free for members with tickets to the 2 pm show;

Family performance, Dec. 9 at 2:15 pm $13, $10 members; $8 children; $6 member children.

Flushing Town Hall [137-35 Northern Boulevard in Flushing;(718) 463–7700; www.flushingtownhall.org]
