In Swahili Harambee means "let us pull together." Harambee Dance Company pulls together the essence of African and African-American dance and music presenting it from an innovative and exciting new contemporary perspective. Artistic Director and resident choreographer Sandella Malloy has developed a high-energy repertoire that pulls together African-based movement, modern dance forms, live percussion and original music, and vibrant costumes into captivating performances reflecting the majesty of the African Diaspora. In 1992 husband and wife team Sandella and Frank Malloy founded Harambee Dance Company in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston was one of the largest ports of entry for African slaves and remains the heart of the Gullah traditional, which is a blend of African and western cultures. The couple relocated to New York City in 1996, where the 25-member company continues to ignite audiences around the world locally and around the world.

The project will reconstruct the seawall using rip rap revetment made up of large rocks which will to protect the shoreline by absorbing and deflecting waves while lessening the effects of erosion. The project will also feature a six foot wide promenade with benches along the waterfront. The northern end of the promenade will feature a small “wharf-like” area at the northern end of the promenade that projects over the water. Some areas adjacent to the promenade will be planted with shrubs.
Anticipated Completion: Spring 2014
