A comment from one of the youth, “…MCAD Camp was soo much fun! I learned so much about African culture, food and best of all I made lots of friends. I really would like to come back again!”





The Maritime Centre for African Dance (MCAD), most recently noted for performing at President Obama’s African Inaugural Ball, was formed in 2005, is an organization dedicated to teaching, sharing and promoting African Culture though the art of dance, to youth and adults across Canada, US and the UK. To date, MCAD has taught well over 600,0000 children and adults in schools, community centres, camps and programs. This number is ever increasing. This organization was formed out of a necessity for lack of cultural representation in the form of traditional dance in Canada, UK and the US. It is a collective of different individuals from Africa who have are trained in traditional dance and ranges from the South, North, West and East of Africa.

As of 2009, MCAD began expanding not only within Canada but also in the US and Zimbabwe. In 2011, MCAD launched in the UK.

Every year, MCAD holds Afro Dance Camps, (trademarked) for children/youth ages 8-Adults, which features cultural dance from areas such as Kenya, Nigeria, Zambia and South Africa to learning to play traditional instruments such as Marimba, (xylophone), jembe (drum), and mbira (thumb piano). ANYONE of any background, with or without dance experience is encouraged to come to this camp.
