VSA Arts Inclusion Residency: West African Drum & Dance ​ 




Hamidou Koivogui and Gregory Acker team-teach West African drum and dance residencies and workshops for K-12 students, university classes, and offer professional development for teachers and team-building for business groups. The Kentucky Center's Arts in Education Program includes their work as part of the Bearing Witness Holocaust Education Program, as well as for teacher and administrative professional development sessions. Both artists are affiliated with VSA Kentucky (arts for students with disabilities and their peers), and they have received support from the Fund for the Arts, Alternate ROOTs, the Arts Council of Louisville, IdeasXLab, JCTC, and numerous independent schools (Montessori, church schools) and community groups interested in learning about and experiencing West African music and dance. Depending on funding, additional Kuvebo! members are invited to perform and present.
