Les Ballets Afrik



Jacob’s Pillow (358 George Carter Road, Becket, MA 01223)

Les Ballet Afrik’s mission is to represent dance styles from Africa and the United States, with an emphasis on West African, Afrobeat, House, and Vogue. Company founder Omari Wiles—the founding father of the House of Oricci and a legend within the ballroom community—has previously danced with Ephrat Asherie Dance Company, and participated in Pillow Lab residencies prior to founding Les Ballet Afrik.

Les Ballet Afrik recently spent a year in a bubble residency supported by the Guggenheim Museum’s Works & Process initiative from 2020-2021, and performed in the museum’s famous rotunda.
