The Friends of Sironka Dance Troupe in East Bay February 2015!
The Importance of Cultural Diversity Programs in Communities
Our Dance Troupe members are skilled in bead-making, hair-braiding, storytelling and in teaching song and dance. Batik Art is also taught after the presentation and this is done by group leader Nicholas Sironka. Students rotate between the different workshops within a typical school day.
All our workshops may usually be held in the school art room, library, or gymnasium.
School will usually provide glass beads, paper plates, and other small items such as wire and string, which will be used to teach Maasai bead-making skills.
We always call to confirm quantity needed in relation to number of children expected to participate, prior to our visit. Different size beads are recommended to different age-groups.
Song and Dance
Friends of Sironka - Maasai Tribal Cultural Performance
The "Friends of Sironka" perform traditional Maasai songs, dances and tell the stories of their lives together. The Maasai are a pastoral people who live in the Great Rift Valley of East Africa. As traditional cattle herders, their music, dance, stories and elaborate dress are integral parts of their cultural traditions. All ages are very welcome! Jambo!
