Kwanzaa: A Regeneration Celebration

Featuring Abdel R. Salaams Forces of Nature Dance Theatre and Friends  

An Apollo tradition for 17  years, the annual Kwanzaa Celebration returns to the Apollo stage after two years to bring together families in an uplifting evening of celebration and reflection. This powerful evening of intergenerational festivities allows audiences to celebrate the season with moments of unity, self-determination, sharing, and giving back to local communities. Join us for a joyous celebration of Kwanzaa through dance, music and spoken word and honoring the principles of Kwanzaa – family, community, and culture.  

Kwanzaa: A Regeneration Celebration features Forces of Nature Dance Theater under the leadership of critically acclaimed choreographer Abdel Salaam and hosted by actress, Stephanie Berry . The electrifying evening includes special guest jazz vocalist Pauline Jean and the young performers of the Harlem Children’s Zone/Forces of Nature Youth Academy of Dance and Wellness.
