North Charleston Arts Festival presents Annual Street Dance

Evening of music & dance to take place May 6 in Olde Village Area

Olde Village Street Dance

The Olde Village section of East Montague Avenue in North Charleston will be transformed into a dance floor on Friday, May 6, 2011, for the North Charleston Arts Festival’s annual Olde Village and Reggae Street Dances. East Montague Avenue will be closed to traffic from O’Hear Avenue to Chateau Avenue beginning at 5:00pm and the event will take place from 6:30-10:00pm. Admission and parking are free.

Boogie down to a variety of tunes from pop, rock, R&B, jazz, and beach played by the five members of Congdon & Co. from 6:30-8:00pm. The group has shared the stage with nationally known acts such as Gary U.S. Bonds, The Drifters, The Coasters, and Eddie Floyd. The night will roll on from dance floor tunes to island vibes from 8:30-10:00pm with Da' Gullah Rootz bringing Gullah and Geechee styles together in an original mix. For the last seven years, the group has seamlessly intermingled ska, rub-a-dub, lovers rock, toasting, and dancehall flavors into the most original reggae "riddems" in music today. Enjoy a lively performance of Afro-Latino dances by Buen Aché Dance Co. during the break between street dance bands from 8:00-8:30pm.
