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.
