Dear Cumbe Family,

It’s happening! Cumbe will start classes at RestorationART, our new home, in mid-September.

We are deeply thankful for Gibney’s warm welcome of Cumbe while we searched for a new home and are buoyed by their strong support as we move to RestorationART at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.

Our regular classes at Gibney will end on August 13.  However, we’re excited to let you know that our partnership with Gibney will continue:  Lamine Thiam’s West African class will continue on Tuesday evenings – without interruption!  In addition, Cumbe will offer occasional workshops and a monthly African/Diaspora workshop series on the 3rd Sunday of every month, featuring a rotation of Cumbe teachers and guest artists.

Dear Cumbe Family,

We are beyond excited for our upcoming re-launch at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation!

We are preparing an exciting schedule of classes and we cannot wait to have you join us in newly renovated dance studios. Renovations are currently behind schedule, but as soon as we have news about our opening date in the new space we will let you know.

But don’t wait to take your favorite Cumbe classes and workshops, because we are still bringing the joy! Our adult classes are happening weekly at Gibney, so come on out and dance with Julio Jean, Liethis Hechevarria, Lamine Thiam, Stevie Insua, Papa Sy, Darian Parker, and Joya Powell! And for families – our popular toddler classes are at Brooklyn Ballet.

Thank you for your patience, trust and support!
