“CARNIVAL” – Celebrating Our Diversity
Berkeley Community Theater at BHS
*This Friday, May 17,* 2013 at 7:00 pm

BHS’ African American Studies Department presents CARNIVAL - Celebrating
Our Diversity: fusing dance, theater, music, and rap in an exciting evening
of high energy, good fun for the entire family. The performance is a
collaboration with Berkeley High School's great artistic minds (Linda Carr,
Lauren Benjamin, Miss Betty, and Mama Naomi Washington-Diouf) combining
modern, Aztec, hip hop, African, fusion, Praise, Haitian, Persian,  soca
and visuals to help you join the party. So expect to see a carnival
happening with dancers parading down the aisles with masks, bright
costumes, stilt walkers, skaters, and more. Watch students bring the flavor
of the marching band with Southern style stepping.

This dance concert is this Friday, May 17, 2013 at 7:00 pm in Berkeley
Community Theater at 1980 Allston Way on the Berkeley High School campus.
