Rejoice!  Diaspora Dance Theater is an ensemble of multi dimensional dancers and musicians under the artistic direction of Oluyinka Akinjiola.  Rejoice! looks at tradition through a contemporary lens bridging our vast history with our complex present. Using folkloric movement as a basis of communication to our immediate surroundings, Rejoice! weaves stories from movements and music of the past and present to navigate through modern day issues and current topics that are  steeped through generations.

Rejoice also offers master classes where company members teach a wide range of techniques to the public from folkloric Afro-Cuban to modern Graham Technique, and Afro Axé movements of Brazil to contemporary Silvestre Technique
