Last month's fundraiser event for Maat Hetep, a Village of Peace in Ghana, West Africa, was a gigantic success!! We raised over our goal of $5000 and more than 100 people joined in the celebration of the International Day of Peace. All together, we drummed, we danced, we ate African-inspired food, and Vibe Tribe made their debut performance. Rochelle Norwood, visionary and girl-in-the-field for Inside OUT Africa is now in Ghana, implementing the plan for a Village of Peace and dancing once again with Africana Dance Ensemble
Vibe Tribe, an intentional dance troupe comprised of 7 Roaring Fork Valley women from Glenwood Springs to Aspen, ranging in age from mid-20's to almost 60, continues to dance for peace. Our next "gig" is at Rifle Middle School, as part of their cultural awareness days, during which we will perform our African routine and teach the students some African dance moves.
