The Mikerline Dance troupe was founded in 2002 in NY as Banboche Lakay by dancer & Choreographer, Mikerline Pierre. The multicultural group of dancers and drummers are taking Haitian Folklore to a new level. The troupe's goal is to be the ambassador of the Haitian culture, expressed in dances, music, and exciting choreography. The group has performed at historical commemorations by Haitian Associations at US universities; Caribbean cultural festivals; Cultural event sponsored by US corporations; Major fund raising galas, and many other performances in Theatres, etc.

Haitian folklore is more than dance movements. Each dance possesses a history that shapes its execution and ignites its expression. For example, the high-energy "IBO" dance celebrates the liberation of slaves. The “Banda” dance also referred to as dance “Guede” celebrates the spirit of the dead,   ”The strong "Nago" dance pays tribute to the warrior spirit. 

Folklore is one of the most expressive ways to learn about Haitian history. From "Yanvalou" to "Rara," each dance pulsates through the body in its own unique way because every movement has a meaning, a history and reason for being.

For a truly exciting experience in Afro-Haitian Folklore, witness the Mikerline Dance troupe in performance. From a small show to a large scale production, the troupe will give you a memorable performance.

If you want to personally experience the magic of Afro-Haitian folklore dance, you owe yourself to attend one of the professionally held classes in Manhattan.
