Students celebrate African and Latino cultures through drum and dance

May 25, 2018

Boys in traditional African shirts and girls in colorful Mexican skirts roamed the halls of Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts. Just around the corner in the auditorium, their families from both the North and South sides of Milwaukee waited for the performance to begin.

Milwaukee Public Theatre’s Bembé Drum and Dance students from Roosevelt Middle School, 800 W. Walnut St., and Bruce Guadalupe Community School, 1028 S. 9th St., came together recently for a show called Journey the Atlantic. They were joined by Ton Ko Thi Children’s Dance Ensemble and Salsabrositas, a Latin youth dance group.
