African Culture Connection (ACC) endeavors to promote understanding of Africa's unique place in the world through drumming, dancing, and visual arts. The group promotes unity and multiculturalism while offering audience members fun, social, and physical activities. Executive Director Charles Ahovissi, formerly of the Ballet National of Benin, West Africa, creates an authentic African village ambiance, utilizing traditional costume and instruments to teach history, music, art, and dance. Thus, the group provides a multicultural experience through a truly hands-on interaction with African culture. The Omaha-based troupe will stage three performances of traditional African dance and music at the Red Cloud Opera House: daytime shows for students and an evening performance for the public. Student programs will serve as a free family pass to the evening show.
