Summer 1summer 10



It’s the 20th year of Sankofa and The Orchard School making this unique event a reality!  Join us for a magical night of drumming, dancing, and story telling.  Students in the Sankofa West African Village camps at The Orchard School will retell 2 African folk tales using theater, music, and dance.  After, the world renowned Sankofa African Dance Theater of Baltimore, MD will showcase their skilled and energetic professional drummers and dancers.  Definitely a night to not be missed!

The show is at 7pm at the Bellows Falls Opera House in downtown Bellows Falls, VT.

$10-$20 tickets can be purchased in advance to be sure to reserve your spot or at the door.  Call 603-835-2495 or e-mail to reserve your tickets!  All proceeds go to The Orchard School.

Thank you to our underwriters Applied Bolting Technology, W.S. Badger Balm, David & Julie Hogan, and CIYO New England for supporting this event! And thank you to our friends at The Robin Colson Memorial Foundation, and the United Way for making these camps accessible through generous funding of our sliding scale and scholarships.
