"It is good to dream, but it is better to dream and work. Faith is mighty, but action with faith is mightier."

For as long as I can remember it has been a dream of mine to build a cultural community center/school in Haiti. Finally, we are on the cusp of turning this vision into a reality. After years of searching, we have found the perfect location and have broken ground in the region of Saint Marc, my hometown as well as one of the many pioneers of Haitian Folkloric Dance, Jean Leon Destine. Most dance and music schools are located in Port-Au-Prince and are not accessible to children outside of the city.  It is my goal to give kids the opportunity to study and learn about their culture through dance and give them a chance to discover their natural talents and gifts.By educating the youth, we continue the preservation ofCulture.

Kriye Bode has been working hard to raise funds, but with the help of our friends, family, and community, we can complete construction and have the center up and running!

Join us on October 14th for an evening of music and dance, featuring a bevy of Kriye Bode dancers, solo artists, and special musical guests:) Click HERE to purchase tickets!
