Yamo! Yamo! Greetings from West Africa! by Fano Soro is coming to St. Joseph’s!

Tuesday, November 19 the Aurora Cultural Centre is pleased to present the theatrical show Yamo! Yamo! Greetings from West Africa! (in French) to our grades 1-4 students in our Gym.  This performance is offered at no charge as part of the Kaleidoscope in the Schools Program.

A spirited and interactive performance, Yamo! Yamo! involves call-and-response and audience participation. Fana Soro is a musician, dancer and educator from the Ivory Coast, where he was a member of the prestigious Ballet National de Côte d’Ivoire.

Since 1997, Fana has been a cultural ambassador for West Africa, bringing his vast experience of engaging students to over a hundred Canadian schools every year. This Kaleidoscope in the Schools Program is generously supported by the Town of Aurora and private donors, including a lead gift from Jan Oudenes and Isobel Ralston.
