Mojuba! Dance Collective (MDC) is an African contemporary dance company and platform dedicated to exploring spiritual and cultural dance traditions of the African Diaspora to restore community wellness, share and validate the Black narrative experience, and reestablish cultural connection. 'Mojuba' is a Yoruba term which loosely means the art of offering reverence. In this way, the company seeks to celebrate, preserve and explore the narratives and artistic contributions of Black America. MDC recognizes the importance of community, and to this end unearths the stories of marginalized communities as an act of healing, transformation, and liberation. mojubadance.com
