A Message From Our Founder and Artistic Director Louines Louinis
"Haitian folklore is a way of life for Haitian people. The way we dance, the messages in the songs and the rhythm of the drums are all able to make us feel good in any situation.
Haitian folklore is reminiscent of our ancestors. It contains a rich history of traditions, culture, language and food.
My goal is to keep the spirit alive in its native state and to share it with the new generations."
