NCA stands for Newincentive Cultural Arts. We are a community of artist who are comprised of musicians, dancers, singers, dj's, stilt walkers, fire-eaters, acrobats, poets, lecturers, herbalists, physical and massage therapists who love to share our knowledge of the Diaspora with EVERYONE.
No matter what race, gender or religion. Ages of 3 to 103 -- beginner to professional are ALL welcome!
Our aim is to expand and exemplify one's consciousness through performances, workshops, lecture demonstrations, and classes. By doing this, we continue to stimulate the hearts and minds of our audiences.
Our Performances will vary based on your event. From Large Elaborate Weddings to Small Community Functions, we will provide a breathtaking blend of artistry, athleticism, dynamism, and explosive energy.
Our Workshops offer opportunities to learn specific rhythms, their names, history as well as a few of the traditional ballet dance style movements that are generally known for the rhythm that is shared. We provide an introduction to traditional African movement and is excellent for people who like to dance (and for those who don't yet know they like to dance), but have little or no dance training. It is suitable for all ages.
Our Lecture Demonstrations are 45-minutes of dance, music and song that provides an introduction to the cultural history of the diaspora. This educational experience engages the audiences of all ages. The performers wear authentic African-attire, and educational materials are available which describe the clothing, vocabulary, and dance. Audience participation is an integral part of this activity. It is ideally suited for school assemblies, seminars, workshops, outdoor festivals, and large group gatherings.
Our Drum & Dance classes offer opportunities to learn about the relationship, communication & language that are shared between a drummer & a dancer. Through history, rhythm & song. It's a fun and challenging environment to learn how to dance and gain further skills in the traditions of Africa.
We also offer Spiritual or Liturgical dance services as well.
We of NEWINCENTIVE would hope to empower all those who see and hear us. Let us take you on a journey.
