Arts & Culture, New York, Only In The Haitian Times

Haitian Folkloric Dance Shines at Lincoln Center

By Naeisha Rose

Feet of Rhythm, a Haitian folkloric dance company in New York led by Nadia Dieudonné, a choreographer and master teacher, had a bombastic showcase performance at the Appel Room in Lincoln Center for the Booking Dance Festival NYC earlier this month.

The captivating Jan. 5 showcase in Manhattan was an excerpt of the dance troupe’s longer piece called “Heritage,” according to Dieudonné, a co-founder of Feet of Rhythm.

“It depicts of the plight of the Africans that were kidnapped and brought to Haiti and their plight,” said Dieudonné. “Through there we develop a historical journey.”
