“If you are willing to work hard, anything is possible.” - said LaShawne Bryant, founder of POETICS and program manager at Coyaba Dance Theater

POETICS helps to preserve native Western African and African American culture for African people and their children living in the U.S. LaShawne Bryant’s arts movement and Coyaba Dance Theater are combining dance, drumming, poetry, and the spoken word to illuminate the beauty of African culture.

Evolving African culture in the U.S.

POETICS – a community of artists – and the Coyaba Dance Theater have encouraged hundreds of gifted artists, writers, poets, dancers, and musicians who value the culture of Africa to share their talent with the world.

Both artist communities organize educational events and seminars about West African and African American culture and provide creative workshops and classes for children, adults and seniors to cultivate their talent and expand their knowledge about African culture.

With support from ASAP Tickets, LaShawne Bryant was able to travel to Johannesburg, South Africa to research native African culture.

I am a student of life, standing with my heart and mind open – absorbing all the knowledge I can carry. The journey to research the roots of native African culture in Johannesburg has been a remarkable experience for me. I would like to thank ASAP Tickets for its generous support of our work to preserve and cultivate African culture here in the U.S.
