Join the PACAC Family!

Performing Arts Center for African Cultures, Inc., (PACAC) is a Non-Profit organization that exists to promote a better understanding of the various African cultures in a fun and interesting learning environment.

The Center focuses on authentic African music; rhythms and Dances of antiquity, and storytelling. We showcase a wide array of indigenous musical instruments, and the colorful traditional outfits necessary for a better understanding and proper appreciation.

Our goal is to safeguard, cultivate, and share the performing arts heritage, and the ongoing creativity of the various African cultures with all who are interested to benefit. These forms of expressions, their meanings, values, and aesthetics that are embodied in them, offer many benefits ranging from physical, educational, spiritual, to social.

We would love to have you join us and experience more!
