Welcome to ABDM
ABDM is a Pathway to a World of Culture through:
Arts Education Programs and Performances
Art of Black Dance and Music is committed to fostering understanding between cultures. Art of Black Dance and Music has served various communities throughout Greater Boston and New England for the almost 38 years.
Since its inception in 1975, A.B.D.M. has delivered a rich repertoire of African-rooted performing arts and education to groups of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. The rich and diverse heritage of the African Diaspora is reflected in the lifestyles of people in the Caribbean, the Americas and cultures around the world.
Thus, through the study of African-rooted dance, music and folklore, we are able to experience and share cultural similarities.
ABDM's mission is to bridge cultural gaps by teaching the common history of humankind through African-rooted dance, music and folklore, and to entertain audiences of all ages with culturally diverse expressions of our African-American heritage.
