Manga African Dance was born out of a desire to edu-tain the community with exclusive performances, festival, conference, dance and drum classes and workshops meant to dazzle and inspire audiences from all over. Since 1990, we’ve engaged with the local community by providing emerging artists with opportunities to participate in our productions. Pop in today and see what we’re all about!

TESTIMONIALS

"I just wanted to say thank you once again. I am getting texts and calls about hoe amazing you all are. you really went above and beyond and did things I was not even expecting. Folks loved to be able to sing and dance you made them feel apart of what you all was doing and not just watch you dance. I just wanted to say thanks and I most definitely will be telling everyone about yall and of course will not mention the price as I know yall looked out for me and I appreciate it more then you know ❤️"

"Good Morning!

I hope all is well with each of you and that you're having a Terrific Tuesday.  Again, I would like to thank the Manga Dance Company for coming to Talley Street and blessing us with Rhythm in Motion and your overall beautiful spirit. I , along with the students, learned so much about  African countries and where music and dance(s) originated from. The teachers were thrilled about going on stage in front of their students and the students as well.

You were all the rave and  talk at Talley after you left. Our principal posted something (video/photos) on his Facebook page. I, too, posted on Instagram. We would like to extend our invitation to you for next year and will keep in touch .  Again, thank you  for  Educating and Entertaining (Edu-taining) "us  here at Talley."

"Here is a sample of my kindergarten class playing some of the same instruments after the Jonas program.  

The children loved the program. Just wish they could have seen them in person." 

​Ward Satterfield, Music Teacher, City Park Elementary, Dalton Public Schools

"Our students are enjoying your presentation so very much. Our youngest City Park students were with you this morning. The City Park music teacher continued the learning."

Lisa Hackney, Ed.D., Director of School Support, Dalton Public Schools
