Using education and a mix of traditional and modern dance, Washington, D.C.’s Lesole’s Dance Project has been presenting high-quality performances for more than 10 years. With “Dancing Through South Africa,” the touring troupe focuses on the historic preservation of South African dance and drumming by showcasing Indlamu, Gumboot and Pantsula styles, while giving equal consideration to modern American and Afro-fusion. LDP offers similar content in its cultural exchange, youth outreach and residency programs.

Saturday 1/16. $10-12, 7:30. PVCC Main Stage, 501 College Dr. 961-5376.
