A collaboration with Ko Thi Dance Company
By Mansa Ra, adapted from the book by Ashley Bryan

Directed by Samantha D. Montgomery

Kids and adults will be dancing in their seats as Ananse, the clever spider of African folklore, tries to trick Granny into dancing away from her garden so he can take her vegetables. But his plan backfires when he is drawn into the dance himself. “Shake it to the East, shake it to the West, shake it to the one that you love best!”
