About

Les Ballet Afrik | August 3, 2022

Les Ballet Afrik’s mission is to represent dance styles from Africa and the United States, with an emphasis on West African, Afrobeat, House, and Vogue. Company founder Omari Wiles—the founding father of the House of Oricci and a legend within the ballroom community—has previously danced with Ephrat Asherie Dance Company, and participated in Pillow Lab residencies prior to founding Les Ballet Afrik. Les Ballet Afrik has been supported by Works & Process at the Guggenheim with a series of bubble and LaunchPAD residencies spanning 2019-2022, and performed in the museum’s famous rotunda.
