Prepare to have your senses dazzled tonight at the African Dance Celebration. This year's show is titled Kids Crossing Oceans, and it features Afriky Lolo (as always), joined for the first time by the Ugandan Orphans Choir. Afriky Lolo specializes in the vibrant dances of West Africa, which require colorful traditional costumes and powerful drumming; each dance is a celebration of life's moments and must be performed with joy and exuberance. The Ugandan Orphans Choir, a group of children ranging from eight to twelve years old, brings the music and dance of East Africa to bear. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Edison Theatre on Washington University's campus (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or www.edison.wustl.edu). Tickets are $25.
