After 15 years of exceptional contributions to the New York City
community Djoniba Dance & Drum Centre, is closing its doors on
December 23rd 2008. Hit by the economic crisis --with fewer
students attending classes -- and a major rent increase, DDDC
has no other option but to shut down.
If you want to help, please do so by exposing our story to politicians,
celebrities and the media (Press release, pictures, video and other info
is available at www.djoniba.com).
You can also help by inviting your friends,co-workers and community
to make a Tax-deductible contribution at www.djoniba.com to build
our new home.
With our friends and supporters, we are optimistic this journey
will make us grow better and stronger.
Peace & Blessings
The immediate result would be 55 teachers and drummers losing their jobs. Hundreds of children from lowerincome families losing the opportunity to receive free dance scholarships, along with thousands of adult students losing their community workout, a place to release stress and convene “Since its establishment, Djoniba Dance & Drum Centre-one of New York City’s largest minority-owned cultural centers- has dedicated itself to connecting men and women of all ages and ethnicities through the arts.
