NANANOM IS PROMOTING AUTHENTIC AFRICAN DANCE IN TENNESSEE
Nananom African Heritage is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization founded in Nashville, Tennessee that serves to promote authentic African Dance through Arts, Education and Recreation by demonstrating the rich cultural heritage of Africa and people of African Descent:
Learn how the art of African Drumming enhances critical thinking in youth and adults
Learn about the history and cultural impact of the peoples of Africa.
Experience African Dance, and learn how dancing stimulates and encourages healthy lifestyles in children and adults.
We create an exchange opportunity for indigenous dance companies in Africa to teach/tour U. S. schools, universities, churches and communities
We convey our African History through dancing and drumming, thereby impacting the history and events that led to different dances in Africa.
We create a channel for Africans in the Diaspora to visit Africa in order to enrich their understanding of African heritage, as well as experience opportunities for economic growth.
We initiate programs that engage the youth in activities that teach community values and global friendship.
We use the art of dance to address the challenges of obesity.
We collaborate with other organizations that promote arts, education, recreation and health in building a better and healthier community.
