Umfundalai is a contemporary African dance technique that comprises its movement vocabulary from dance traditions throughout the African Diaspora. NAAADT’s mission is to heighten the quality of contemporary, neo-traditional, and Diasporan African dance teaching in North America through teacher training, performance opportunities, community engagement, professional development, and certification in the Umfundalai contemporary African dance technique for aspiring African dance educators. NAAADT is an IRS 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization, and as such, all donations are 100% tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

mama k picpngKariamu Welsh, D. Arts was a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, mentor, and colleague to many. Whether one’s connection to her was via family, academia, dance classes or performances, or her written works, her impact on dance and African dance scholarship extends the world over. In the New York Times obituary article, one of her many students was quoted saying, “Dr. Welsh changed the landscape of how we think about African dance by showing that what we do with our bodies is worthy of investigation.”

Mama K Day was created to commemorate Mama Kariamu’s global reach, and bring awareness to her legacy. Sponsored by NAAADT, this will be an annual event held on the nearest Saturday to Mama Kariamu’s birthday, September 22. All proceeds from the fundraiser support NAAADT’s Umfundalai dance education programs, including the Umfundalai teaching certification program.
