Habiba brings traditional African stories to life in a joyful, interactive, multi-cultural performance complete with authentic costumes, dance, drumming, and songs.


Habiba, a native of Ghana who currently resides in Portland, Oregon, is teaching in the Pioneer Valley for one weekend only. A seasoned artist with 18 years of US and international performance experience, she is the recipient of the Lilla Jewel Artistic Merit Award. She performs and teaches dance, rhythm and stories of Ghana, Guinea, Gambia and Senegal, bringing joy, laughter and lifelong lessons to thousands of children and adults.

“.. Addo is the showstopper, a short, round woman about as far from the idealized image of a dancer as can be imagined. Yet it was her full-bodied embrace of the joy and mischievous spirit of the dance – a one-woman celebration, it was – that imprinted itself on the memory. And she can move.” -The Portland Tribune
