Ninth Annual BaoBao Festival 

When: Fri., March 2, 7 p.m. 2012
Phone: 389-6607
Price: Free

Some people have an angry dance that involves stomping and tooth-grinding, and some people have a happy dance that involves throwing their arms around and butt-jiggling. These dances may not have any purpose per se, but a West African tradition takes movement, pairs it with music and storytelling, and stages it under a baobao tree, making what seems at first silly, vital for a community. Happily, the Ghana National Dance Ensemble invites us to gather in such a celebration at Colorado College's Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre St., for the free, ninth annual BaoBao Festival from 7 to 9 tonight. — Molly Mrazek
