The African spirit was in the air as students ate lunch and enjoyed CALA-Bash week performances from the Adande African Drum and Dance Company.

The Adande Dance Company is a group of African drummers and dancers from North Charleston. The talented and energetic group of performers is led by Jesse L. Thrower.

The group kept the crowd entertained with dance moves and rhythmic beats. They performed a West African wedding/social dance and also taught the crowd about the different types of drums they use.

To end their performance, the group got the crowd involved by letting them play the drums and perform some of their dance moves with them.
