AYIKODANS made its Arsht Center debut when the Center’s President/CEO John Richard and prominent community leaders joined forces to save the dance troupe after the devastation of the 2010 Earthquake in Haiti. Since then, the stunning ensemble based out of Port Au Prince, Haiti has received glowing international media attention. Most notably, founder/artistic director Jeanguy Saintus was invited by Lincoln Center to stage a piece for its prestigious Out of Doors festival, a performance which earned Saintus recognition from The New York Times. In a triumphant celebration of its 25th Anniversary season, AYIKODANS – including the full company of dancers, drummers, and vocalists – returns to their Miami family and the Arsht Center with an all-new program for Miami audiences.
