Mission Statement

The KowTeff School of African Dance is a non-profit organization with the mission of preserving and perpetuating the diverse folklore of African peoples through quality education and entertainment. The KowTeff School of African Dance artistically and creatively uses dance, music (song and drum), and the spoken word to keep alive the cultural values, principles, and customs of African tradition. We are committed to excellence and integrity in the training of dancers and musicians, the dissemination of knowledge related to African, Caribbean, and African American history and cultural art forms, the delivery of performances that celebrate such art forms, and the development of community-based programs that utilize the cultural arts to uplift people of African descent.

Description

Founded in 1991, KowTeff has researched, taught and performed African Diaspora Dance throughout the Tri-State region and abroad. Co Founder and Artistic Director Sewaa Codrington has over three decades of training and study with internationally recognized master traditional artists and African griot families. KowTeff has educated and entertained thousands of audience members with free classes and community based performances in underserved communities such as Brownsville, Crown Heights, East Flatbush, and Bedford Stuyvesant. The company has been invited to present on academic panels for the Brooklyn Arts Council and to conduct workshops for the Department of Culture in St. Kitts. Today KowTeff is a duly incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization engaging capacity building efforts to secure philanthropic support and strengthen infrastructure so that its work can continue into the future.
