What you'll do

Guests will arrive at my house in the backyard where outdoor seating is available to them. They will get the opportunity to watch me get suited, put on the stilts and actually stand up 12 feet tall. I will then perform a few acrobatics while on the stilts as i would usually do in an actual performance. All of this will be done as I give a lecture on the history and culture of African stilt dancing. Many questions usually arise that we can't answer during giggs. Now is the perfect time for those questions to get answered. Afterwards, pictures together is always memorable. Lastly, we will watch stilt dancing footage from our latest performances at festivals, ceremonies and different events around the United States.

Ngozi McCormick

I've been a part of a secret society in New Orleans for the past 11 years that is unique and a rare form of art. This art is recognized and greatly appreciated all across the world especially in New Orleans culture. I'm a professional African stilt dancer. It's an uncommon and respected art that takes me all over the U.S. and has taken my mentor all over the world. I perform at every major festival in New Orleans and multiple international or multi-cultural festivals across the U.S. We are very popular and mysteriously unknown due to the fact that we are fully clothing covered masquerades. This leaves admirers with many questions from "Who we are? Where are we from?" To "How do we get up? How do we get down?" Now is the time to experience the mystery of the masquerades and learn answers to questions many ask but usually goes unanswered.

What's included

Drinks
I will provide bottled water, coke, sprite and diet coke.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our experience in the backyard of my home in the marigny bywater area, also known as the 7th ward.
