OUR APPROACH

At Cumbe, our goal is to tap into children’s amazing capacity for imagination and wonder, while introducing them to the joy and vitality of dance, song and rhythms of Africa and it’s diaspora in the Caribbean, Latin America and the U.S. We believe children learn through fun and play, and we design our lessons with that in mind.

Cumbe is a small camp. Cohorts are limited to 13 students so our teachers will have a chance to really get to know your child. At the end of each two week session the campers and instructors will put on a show demonstrating all they have done. Producing a show also means collaboration. So the children will learn how to work with others, share ideas, and create a production they can be proud of. Above all, we want your children to leave camp each day smiling and excited!

Join us for an Info Session to learn more about the program, meet the teaching artists, and get a taste of the camp experience.
