Ubuntu Dance Collective
,pronounced oo-boon-too, is a spirited, energetic group of dancers. UDC celebrates many of the faces and voices of dance through a fusion of authentic and progressive interpretations of contemporary and ancient African, African American, and Caribbean dance, music, and folklore. UDC is highly regarded for carefully researching and preserving traditional African dances while building the foundation for new works from these cultural traditions.
This festive Hampton Roads based group performs at parties, weddings, videos shoots, festivals, concerts, fundraisers, and holiday related events. UDC enhances the quality of your entertainment, and welcome collaborations to custom design an event with you.
The word ubuntu has its origin in the Bantu language of southern Africa. This ancient African construct emphasizes our common humanity; our connectedness and interdependence as fellow human beings. Ubuntu teaches us to look beyond ourselves, be of service to others, and find ways to enable the community around us to improve. In so doing, we become more fully human. These guiding principles are the foundation of our approach to the growth and development as a community of learners who perform.
