Taratibu Youth Association is committed to taking dance beyond the traditional studio and into communities that might not otherwise experience performing arts with strong and positive messages from young people.

Through its Community Outreach Program, Taratibu Youth Association engages the community by offering a variety of classes, workshops, informational opportunities and performance experiences. Through our Community Outreach Program, Taratibu Youth Association encourages participants to explore the culture and history of Africa while raising awareness of issues that matter to young people.

Taratibu Youth Association offers a variety of unique and educational programs during visits to the community and these can be tailored to the age, skill level and interests of the participants.

Since the inception of our Community Outreach Program in 2007, we have served nearly 250 communities and venues.
