Nana Akua Goes to School

About the Program

Students learn about, appreciate, and celebrate our differences. Inspired by the words and meaning behind the children’s book “Nana Akua Goes to School” by Tricia Elam Walker, DCDC dance artists use expressive movement to translate and tell this moving story that celebrates cultural diversity. Zura, a shy girl, brings her West African grandmother to Grandparents Day at school to share what makes her special.
