New For 2021: From The Archives!
From The Archives: Mala! Mala! available now through January 22
Bringing in the year 2021, Ko-Thi Dance Company is guided by the Kwanzaa principle of Imani, or "faith. We have chosen to celebrate this new year by releasing archival footage of our MALA! MALA! concert (originally performed in February 2020 at Wisconsin Lutheran College), which means "to shine!" in Manding. We encourage you all to have faith. To be purposeful.
To remain steadfast. To stand in your light. To shine.
Look for new From The Archives releases each month, now through June!
