Welcome! 

We are the Afrikan-American Drum & Dance Ensemble, Inc. (AADDE), Cincinnati's first traditional African-American drum and dance company. We educate, entertain, and share, Africa's rich heritage through music, dance, song and storytelling. We have provided dance instruction and cultural experiences for more than 25 years.

AADDE regularly provides an outlet for entire families to share in a dynamic cultural experience together! Once you encounter the AADDE experience, you will know firsthand the feeling of community (the African village) and history in motion. 

The Afrikan-American Drum & Dance Ensemble, Inc. is a 501(c) non-profit organization.

Dancing with AADDE is truly a Family Affair! 

We welcome all ages and genders! We have seniors, middle aged adults, young adults, teens, youngsters, preschoolers and toddlers in our classes. It is truly a weekly family-community affair. What's so unique is that everyone dances together! What an experience!  Come join us this Saturday for CLASS!
