The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons presents "Spirit of Uganda," featuring a vibrant cast of 22 singers and dancers ages 6 to 18, on the main stage Saturday night, Feb. 6.

The troupe's dynamic choreography, bright, layered standing-drum rhythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals bring to life the sounds and movements of East Africa.

Ambassadors for Uganda's 2.4 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africa's next generation as they promote awareness of Uganda's dual crises of AIDS and civil war, and raise funds to support themselves and others in their homeland.

Hailed as "marvelously spirited musicians and dancers" by the Village Voice, the performers take the stage at 8 p.m.

The Performing Arts Center is located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Valencia 91355.
