"Ayikodans did more than sell out three performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center, they moved people to exultation, standing ovations!"Artburst, Miami

A little over a year ago, the Adrienne Arsht Center's President and CEO John Richard, alongside The Miami Herald's World Editor, John Yearwood, made a trip to visit disaster-strewn Haiti. On his journey to understand how the Arsht Center could make a meaningful contribution to Haiti's recovery, John was introduced to the country's premier dance ensemble, AYIKODANS, a company that was then on the brink of closing their business for good.

With the help of passionate Miami community leaders, the Center was able to help save AYIKODANS - and has commissioned a new piece that will see its world premiere on May 25 & 26!
